Old Carolina BBQ is The Official BBQ of Football™ — and they know what it means to shine during the high school season. Old Carolina offers the best in tailgate, halftime and post-game snacks and meals!  That’s why they chose to honor the best each and every week on the high school football gridiron in Stark County.

The WHBC Broadcast team for the Aultman Hospital Radio Game of the Week will each Friday select the “Old Carolina Player of the Game”.  The player who stood above the rest.  That player will receive a $25 Gift card to Old Carolina to enjoy and celebrate.  It’s all about good food and community spirit!  Here’s a list of the 2023 winners:
