The junior got 35 percent of the vote to win a competition with Buford's Matthew Bonadies (33 percent), Parkview's Rob Youngblood (24 percent) and Mill Creek's Michael Leonard (8 percent). More than 3,000 votes were cast this week.

Each week during the football season, the Daily Post will nominate four players for its Fans Choice Player of the Week. Online voting at www.gwinnettprepsports.com will begin Monday mornings and will end Thursdays at noon. The winner will be featured online and in the Friday print edition.

Chapple got the honor after completing 22 of 26 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns in the Spartans' 52-21 second-round playoff victory over previously unbeaten Heard County.

"Rafe has really improved all season and had a standout game last Friday," GAC head coach Tim Hardy said. "He has great command of our offense, leading us with both his performance and competitive drive to win."
