The Cleveland Jewish News will kick off another year of recognizing high school players of the week beginning in January.
Each week for 10 weeks, a top Jewish athlete will be honored, beginning Jan. 22 and concluding March 26 – barring further COVID-19 impacts to the high school sports season. Each athlete will be recognized with a story that will appear in the CJN, as well as at cjn.org and across social media platforms. Each weekly winner will also receive a plaque recognizing his or her achievement.
The award is open to all Jewish athletes who compete for a Jewish or non-Jewish school in Northeast Ohio.
Coaches, athletic directors, family or friends can nominate an athlete. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Sunday of each week to nominate an athlete for consideration. Include the athlete’s name, school, any statistics you have for the nomination and his or her contact information, as well as the coach’s contact information. Jewish athletes participating in 2020 fall sports will be considered if nominated.
The CJN plans to honor athletes and their families in some fashion following the season.
