There has been confusion in the past about how we select the GameTimePA.com Athletes of the Week and how they are different from the YAIAA Athletes of the Week that you, the viewer, vote on every week here on this blog.
So here’s a breakdown of the process.
GameTimePA.com is the home of high school sports coverage for four newspapers:
Each paper has their own weekly set of athletes of the week drawn from their coverage area.
Finally, all of these athletes, typically about 10, get their names thrown in a regional pool for a chance to be named the GameTimePA Athlete of the Week. This means athletes from York, Adams, Franklin, Fulton and Lebanon counties are competing against each other. These winners are picked by each of the four sports staffs on a rotating basis.
In short, a player who is picked as the YAIAA Athlete of the Week might or might not be chosen as the GameTimePA Athlete of the Week.
I hope this clears things up. If you’re still unsure, don’t hesitate to give me call (771-2058) or shoot me an email (email@example.com.)
