NEWTON — WNNC is again this season selecting an area Player of the Week in high school football.

The radio station and Coca-Cola present the Golden Helmet award each week after receiving nominations from the schools, a tradition established by WNNC owner Dave Lingafelt.

WNNC also continues to lead Catawba County’s radio stations in live weekly broadcasts of the leading games, with Josh Edmonson the lead broadcaster.

HobbsDailyReport.com is not involved with the Golden¬† Helmet process but is a media partner with the station, waiving its copyright and providing WNNC use of any of the website’s content the station would like to use in its daily reporting and high school coverage in football and all other sports.
