Vote for All-Area Football | Defense and Special Teams

Help us decide who are the best local defensive football players by voting in our All-Area Football (Defense) polls below. Note: For some of the categories you can choose more than one player.

Eds. note: All-Area teams are selected by combining votes from area coaches, Herald staff writers and fan voting. Voting for All-Area Football (Defense) ends Thursday at 4 p.m.

Correction: Because the All-Area ballots are based on All-Wesco first-team selections and coach nominations, Kyle O’Donnell was mistakenly left off the defensive linemen ballot and his teammate Travis Jones was put in his place. Jones has been replaced in the poll results by O’Donnell.
