Editor’s note: The Week 5 poll was deactivated Thursday morning when irregularities were detected. The Bee is working to rectify voting in time for next week’s poll for the games of Week 6.

Five players had superb outings that helped their teams to a victory in Week 5 of Central Section high school football. One won it on a field goal, while others were busy scoring touchdowns.

Which one was the best? You decide in The Fresno Bee’s weekly Player of the Week poll.

Voting ends at noon Thursday. You can vote as many times as you want.
