(WBNG Binghamton) The next 5 silver footballs go to the players on the outside.
And with high school football teams relying more on the passing game, the wide receivers are becoming a bigger part of the offense.
Now lets take a look at the top receivers in each class this season.

His team made it to the sectional final, and he led all section 4 receivers with 34 catches for 478 yards and 9 touchdowns.

Waverly senior Austin Bostwick was one of quarteback Zach Cooney's favorite targets, accounting for nearly 20 percent of the teams points this season.

He's the second straight Wolverine to win the award.

Union-Endicott's Nick Yesensky was a human highlight machine at the wide receiver, coming up with big catch after big catch.

And regularly finding himself in the top plays of the week.

The senior caught 22 passes for 322 yards and 7 touchdowns.

The Chenango Valley offense didn't throw the ball that much, but when they did it was usually to senior Zach Collins.

Collins had 24 catches, some of them top plays as well, for 427 yards and 8 touchdowns.

His biggest game of the year came in a sectional playoff game in which he caught 3 TD passes.

The Binghamton Patriots used a potent passing game to help get them back to the state playoffs for the second year in a row.

And while the Patriots had 6 players with double digit receptions, the one who lead the way was sophomore Dan Jeffrey.

He grabbed a team high 23 passes for 315 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Jeffrey is the second Patriot in a row to win the award.

The Groton Indians got all the way to the Class "D" title game and one of the big reasons was the play of wide receiver Damian Young.

The senior led the team with 17 catches for 390 yards and 4 touchdowns.

His biggest game came against Elmira Notre Dame where he caught 4 passes for 101 yards and 2 scores.
