The spotlight has started to shine brighter on area high school student-athletes with last weekend marking the end of the regular season for most fall sports.
With each passing week, the teens become more and more aware that their opportunities to showcase their athletic skills are numbered.
Instead of picking last week's standout performances from afar, the staff at usatodayhss.com/Cleveland again asked the site's Twitter followers - fans and participants who were actually at all of the conference games to witness the clutch plays - to give their input.
After all, what's better for an athlete than being publicly recognized for his standout play in a pivotal game by a teammate or coach?
Read the responses we received below. Then, join the conversation by connecting with usatodayhss.com/Cleveland via Facebook and/or Twitter and telling us about the elite performances you witnessed in Week 8 of the fall prep sports season.
It's not too late to give one of your teammates a virtual pat on the back; your social media comments will be added to the story!
