Pac-12Each week our senior football writers—Dane Miller, Jack Follman, Nick Bartlett, Stephen Vilardo, Mark Shmor, and Mik Dietlin—select an Offensive, Defensive, and Freshman Player of the Week throughout the 2021 football season.

They submit their selections before the official Pac-12 Players of the Week are released to keep their choices independent. Seven different players received votes in Week One.

You’ll find a tabulation of their choices and a cumulative listing of all weekly SportsPac12 Players of the Week at the bottom of the page.
