And then there were two.
The 16-player tournament field has been trimmed to just two for The News-Sentinel High School Football Fan Choice Preseason Area Player of the Year.
As we inch towards the start of the season on Aug. 22, The News-Sentinel is giving the fans the opportunity to vote on which player they believe is the best in the area entering 2014.
The event is a bracket-style, four-round tournament pairing up the area's best players against each with the winner being determined through online voting on The News-Sentinel website, news-sentinel.com.
The tournament voting schedule is listed below, with voting ending at 11 p.m. for each round. The player with the most votes when the polls close will advance to the next round.
Voting for the championship match will conclude at 12:01 a.m. on Friday. The winner of the The News-Sentinel High School Football Fan Choice Preseason Area Player of the Year will be announced in the Friday edition of The News-Sentinel, shortly before the 2014 officially kicks off.
