Four area football players are up for high school athlete of the week honors after their outstanding performances during the first weekend of the 2018 Maine high school football season.

This week's nominees are Alex Demers of Winslow, Andrew Kiley of Brewer and both Garrett Trask and Keith Pomeroy of the Hermon Hawks.

Here's how each athlete performed over the weekend

Alex Demers played a key role in the Black Raiders' 28-20 triumph over the Nokomis Warriors on Saturday. He scored a touchdown from 2 yards out before adding a successful 2-point conversion run, giving Winslow a 16-14 lead in the second half. Demers then plowed into the endzone on fourth-and-goal from the 1, extending Winslow's lead to 22-14.

Garrett Trask tossed three touchdown passes in Hermon's win over John Bapst on Saturday. Trask, the reigning All-Big 11 first-team quarterback and defensive back, led the Hawks to a commanding 33-0 triumph in their season opener at Husson University.

Keith Pomeroy was on the receiving end of all three of Trask's touchdown passes. The senior receiver is part of an experienced Hermon team that's looking to build off last year’s breakthrough season, as the team advanced to the playoffs after a 6-2 regular season.

Andrew Kiley was impressive in the Witches' season opener against the Biddeford Tigers o Friday night. Unfortunately for Kiley, his game-high 137 rushing yards and two touchdowns weren't enough to lead Brewer to victory, as the Tigers pulled away late in the game en route to a 26-12 triumph at Doyle Field.

Voting ends Wednesday night at midnight.
