Chance Price won the fourth installment of this year’s Player of the Week contest sponsored by Tony Pope State Farm Insurance of Mount Pleasant between Wando, Palmetto Christian and Bishop England football players.
Price, a senior defensive back with Wando, was coach Jimmy Noonan’s pick after he had six solo tackles, three assists, four ball deflections and an interception during the Warriors’ game against rival Summerville, Sept. 20.
Price has been a force in the defensive secondary this season. He has recorded 16 solo tackles, six assists, nine ball deflections, an interception and a touchdown.
With the win, Wando evened the friendly contest series lead at two wins apiece with Palmetto Christian. Bishop England’s Nick Shiver came in second place by just nine votes.
Every week during the high school football season, you vote among six players – two from each of the three East Cooper programs – for who you think is most deserving of the title of Player of the Week.
The voting process is done entirely online at www.MoultrieNews.com/POTW. Reporter Tyler Heffernan chooses one player from each of the three teams and each team’s respective head coach picks one player from his team.
You can only vote once. Every Wednesday, the newest set of nominations are announced in our print editions and on our website. Voting is open until the following Monday at noon, which leaves about five days for voting.
