The voting process is simple again this year.

A photo gallery will be posted at 8 a.m. Monday morning and will remain on the Times-Journal’s Facebook page until 5 p.m. on Friday.

To “vote” for your favorite pairing, simply click the picture of the photo you’d like to vote for and then hit the “like” button underneath the photo.

The pairing with the most likes will win the contest and grace the cover of Gridiron, which is the Times-Journal’s annual high school football preview magazine.

Comments will not count as votes in the contest and neither will likes on the overall photo gallery.
