The list of nominees for The Fresno Bee high school football Player of the Week draws upon results from a wild West Yosemite League game, a gutsy run on a two-point conversion.

You can vote as often as you like. The poll closes at noon Thursday.

Player of the Week nominees:

RB Lonnie Wessel, Golden West: He did all he could to keep the Trailblazers in the game, rushing 27 times for 317 yards and two touchdowns in a 36-29 loss to Lemoore. The 317 yards is a school record, according to Central Section historian Bob Barnett. Wessell has 26 touchdowns, which is a school record for a single season.

QB Justin Holaday, Lemoore: The senior completed 20 of 30 for a career-high 362 yards and four touchdowns in the Tigers’ win over Golden West. He also had seven carries for 28 yards.

WR Tory Horton, Washington Union: The Panthers’ star receiver had three receptions for 114 yards and three touchdowns in a 49-30 victory over Liberty-Madera Ranchos. Twelve of Horton’s 29 catches this season have gone for TDs.

WR/FS Mikey Ficher, Tulare Western: He was all over the field for the Mustangs in a 47-0 victory over Mission Oak, playing offense and defense. Ficher had a 49-yard interception return for a touchdown and had 87 receiving yards and three receiving TDs.

RB Jose Rodriguez, Parlier: The Panthers hadn’t beaten Fowler since 2004. Rodriguez made it happen when he ran for a two-point conversion with no time left, giving Parlier a 29-28 victory. He also had two rushing touchdowns.
