Counting the votes: Eds. note: A new feature of our football player of the week will show how the fans and Herald staffers voted. The fans chose Sultan running back Bryce MacDicken after his strong performance in a win over Granite Falls. Herald writers Aaron Lommers, David Krueger and Jon Saperstein voted for Austin Joyner, Justin Peterson and Baker-Bruce, respectively, leaving it to Herald prep editor to break the tie.
