NJ101.5 is doing something very special this year to honor those special athletes who excel in any given week in their respective sport. And YOU help determine the weekly winner! It’s time to cast your vote for this week’s NJ101.5 High School Athlete of the Week.


Here’s how it the voting works: Each week, we have a new group of NJ student-athletes who have shined for their respective teams. You can cast your vote for your favorite athlete. Voting ends on Friday at NOON. Find out the winner when they are announced on NJ1015.com at 2pm. Each weekly winner will get a plaque and at the end of the school year we’ll honor all our winners with a very special awards banquet.
