It's time for the Des Moines Register's athlete of the week recognition.
Each week, we'll pick five standout males and five standout females from the week prior and offer up polls to the public. Readers will determine who wins each weekly award. Winter sports include girls and boys basketball, girls and boys wrestling, girls and boys bowling and boys swimming.
Winners will be announced by 11 a.m. every Friday morning, so be sure to vote and get everyone you know to vote, too.
With that, here are the nominees for Jan. 10-16. Polls are at the bottom of each section.
Caylor Hoffer, Denver basketball
Hoffer was everywhere in last Tuesday's 93-77 win over South Hardin. The Denver standout piled up 42 points and three assists to lead the way.
Pryce Sandfort, Waukee Northwest basketball
Sandfort can put up crazy numbers at any point, and he did so in last Tuesday's 85-71 win over Marshalltown. Sandfort went for 42 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in the victory.
Hogan Franey, Martensdale-St. Marys basketball
Franey got plenty but didn't need any help in single-handedly outscoring Wayne last Tuesday. Franey went for 37 points, five rebounds, six assists and five steals in the 69-23 victory.
Theo Klaes, Riceville basketball
'Board man gets paid' right? Klaes took NBA star Kawhi Leonard's catchphrase to heart in last Thursday's 72-58 loss to Central Springs. The Riceville standout grabbed 24 rebounds, including 13 offensive, to go with 20 points and seven steals.
Casey Gardner, Dunkerton basketball
Last Tuesday's 98-27 win over Clarksville was a mismatch from the opening tip, but that shouldn't discredit Gardner's massive night. The junior poured in 18 assists, currently a single-game high for Iowa high school boys basketball this season, to go with 14 points in the win.

Paige Klocke, Glidden-Ralston basketball
Another dominant stat line in last Tuesday's 59-51 win over Ar-We-Va. The junior standout went for 35 points and 12 rebounds in the victory.
Sydney Hurd, Storm Lake St. Mary's basketball
Hurd did it all in last Tuesday's 51-29 win over Alta-Aurelia. The junior standout put up 22 points, 20 rebounds and seven blocks in the runaway victory.
Emma Rector, Chariton basketball
There's unselfish, and then there's what Rector did in last Tuesday's 72-36 win over Clarke. Rector piled up 16 assists — a single-game high in Iowa high school girls basketball so far this season — to go with 19 points and seven steals.
Lauren Wilson, Springville basketball
How about a 50-burger? In last Thursday's 72-47 win over Central City, Wilson went for 50 points, 14 rebounds and four steals.
Hannah Stuelke, Cedar Rapids Washington basketball
The Iowa signee can go off at any point, and she did again in last Tuesday's 65-61 win over Cedar Falls. Stuelke put up 43 points and 15 rebounds in the victory.
