With the 2015 football season in the rear-view mirror and the Palm Beach Post All-Area teams published, we thought it would be a good idea to let Palm Beach County football fans decide who they think were the best players in the county this season.

Each day, we’ll narrow the selections down to who we think were five of the top players at each position this past season, and from there, you choose who you believe was the best. You can still vote for the best quarterback here, the county’s best running backs here and the top receivers here.

Playoff football look ahead and games of the week

The final week of the regular season had plenty of intense game action, including the Atlantic-Dwyer showdown, the Muck Bowl and a close Wellington-Boca game. But now the playoffs begin.
