Poll: Who is the area's best defensive football player?

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- We often focus our attention on the offense in high school football, but this week we're turning to the defense.  After two weeks a handful of players have separated themselves from the rest with big tackles, sacks and interceptions.  Make your vote for "the area's best defensive football player" and spread the word.  Voting ends Friday at 5:00 pm.  We will announce the winner the winner late that night on the O-Zone Show, 11:30 pm on the Ozarks CW.

Results will be released soon.
