Fall sports are back, which means so is Athlete of the Week. For the 11th year, Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute will recognize some of the outstanding performances from area student-athletes with the scholarship program Athlete of the Week.

Just like in years past, you have a say in who wins male and female Athlete of the Week and the $500 scholarship that goes with the title. Each week, The Morning Call sports staff will nominate three male and three female senior athletes from the area based on their performances the week prior. You can vote for the athlete you think deserves to win from Monday, 5 p.m. until voting closes on Thursday, 9 a.m.
