Week 1 of the high school football season is officially in the books, and there were plenty of highlights from the opening night of the year.

There were some shootouts and some new beginnings. Some top-notch individual performances and some tight finishes.

Through it all it was Week 1 of the season, meaning a new year is upon us, with fresh hopes and dreams for every team that takes the field in the YAIAA.

We'll be here with you every step of the way during the high school sports season, and in this segment we'll ask you, the fans, to pick your YAIAA Athletes of the Week.

We'll have weekly polls for high school football, along with the top male and female non-football athletes. Below, we take a look back at some of the best performers from Week 1 of the season. The voting polls are officially open until 5 p.m., Monday. Feel free to vote, comment and share with friends and fans. May the top player from the region win.
