Cordts claims Week 6 prize, Campbell wins wild Week 7 football vote


The West Valley Preps football player on the week vote moved over to our new site and it took voters a week to catch on.

Fans of two schools, Glendale Prep and Millennium, drove the vote totals. And when the dust settled, Millennium senior linebacker Jamarlo Campbell edged Glendale Prep junior receiver/linebacker Malachi Mizysak by a margin of 4,364 votes to 3,982 votes
