Last Sunday, Land-Grant Holy Land started something new by giving you a chance to vote for the Elite '15 MVP of the week. Numerous members of the Ohio State 2015 recruiting class stoodo ut on the field for their high school squads, but only one could walk away with the crown.

After completing all 12 of his passing attempts for 295 yards, and four touchdowns, Athens High School quarterback Joe Burrow, beat out Eric Glover-Williams, Denzel Ward, Dre'Mont Jones, and Carlton Davis, with 74% of your votes to win the inaugural Elite '15 MVP.

Just like last week, numerous OSU commits shined on Friday and Saturday night. With that being the case, it's time for your voice to be heard. Here are your week two nominees:

Nick Conner

Playing in his first game of the season for Dublin Scioto after sitting out last week due to injury, Conner, a 6'3 and 225 linebacker, seemed to always to be around the ball against Scioto cross town rival Dublin Coffman on Friday.

Even though Scioto as a whole didn't play their best game, Conner started his year off on a good note. In the 35-7 loss to the Shamrocks, he accounted for 12 total tackles, including a quarterback sack.

Joe Burrow

Continuing where he left off last week, the OSU quarterback commit put up some rather ridiculous numbers once again for Athens High Friday night against the Zanesville Blue Devils.

Joe's night was over pretty early, after he led the Bulldogs to a demanding lead by connecting on 15 of his 19 passing attempts for 312 yards and five touchdowns by halftime. The 6'4 210 pound Burrow finished the game 18-of-25 for 389 yards and six touchdowns. Not just a pocket passer, Burrow also rushed for 76 yards on 11 attempts in the 66-28 Athens victory.

Denzel Ward

In a 41-13 Nordonia thrashing of Twinsburg, Ward once again showed he is among the most athletic players in the state of Ohio. The future Buckeye defensive back intercepted a Twinsburg pass and returned it 89 yards to the house for a touchdown, while also starring on offense, where he hauled in three receptions for 67 yards.

Eric Glover-Williams

Canton McKinley really didn't have many bright spots on Saturday against OSU target Drew Richmond and Memphis, TN's University School. Glover-Williams might not have had the best game of his Bulldog career, but the shifty running back was key in making the game a lot closer than what many expected coming into the matchup.

Rushing the ball 13 times, he finished with only 38 yards, but scored two touchdowns in the 33-20 Canton McKinley loss to his potential teammate, Richmond, who is set to commit this week, and University School.

Kevin Feder

The massive 6'9 offensive lineman and his Don Bosco Prep (NJ) teammates only needed two quarters to walk away with a 35-7 win over St. Joseph's Prep (PA) on Saturday. In a game that was called due to lightning, Feder helped block Don Bosco to 194 total yards of offense on just 25 plays.
