Poll results: BND Football Player of the Week commands 78% of the readers’ votes

Provided

Kaden Rakers of Breese Central High School is the winner of last week’s the Belleville News-Democrat Football Player of the Week high school poll, as selected by readers of bnd.com.

Rakers, a senior, rushed 10 times for 145 yards and scored 4 rushing touchdowns in the Cougar’s 41-7 victory against Salem.

Rakers received 78% of the votes after as the Panthers stay competitive for the season.

Here are the other candidates:

  • Gavin Lich, Waterloo High School, Senior, LB: Lich recorded 18 total tackles, including 3 tackles for loss, 2 fumble recoveries and 1 sack in a 21-12 victory over Jerseyville.

  • Armon Vinson, Belleville East High School, Senior, QB: Vinson completed 24 for 44 passes for 327 yards and 2 touchdowns and ran for another score in the Lancers 31-28 win against O’Fallon.

  • Dierre Hill Jr., Althoff Catholic High School, Junior, RB/DB: Hill had 14 carries for 161 yards on the ground and 1 touchdown in Althoff’s 38-27 victory over Collinsville. Also, Hill had 5 tackles and 2 interceptions, one of which was returned for a 36-yard touchdown.

The poll ended at 10 a.m. Friday.

To be clear, this poll is not scientific. In fact, we invite you to vote as many times as you want. It’s all for fun, BND readers.

The next football player of the week poll will appear on the BND’s website — www.bnd.com — at 5 a.m. Tuesday. Please email nominations to alathan@bnd.com.
