WBNG Binghamton - When you think of a football team, normally it's the quarterbacks that get all the credit.

But not always the case in high school, where running the football is at the heart of most offenses.

This season, some quarterbacks in the area took center stage.

Even though Southside only had 2 wins, it's quarterback was a big part of the offense.

Brad Bellinger threw for more than 14 hundred yards and 12 touchdowns.

Including a huge day against Johnson City, the Hornets first win of the year.

If you like quarterbacks that air it out, look no farther than Class D winner Jake Daly of Seton Catholic Central.

In 9 games, Daly threw for 20 touchdowns, second most in Section 4 this season.

Daly also did some damage with his legs, rushing for more than 630 yards.

Perhaps his biggest play of the year may have been this long, video game like run against Deposit Hancock.

Complete with a little dance at the end.

Owego's Nick Larrabee brought an added dimension to the Indians attack this season.

Larrabee tossed 15 touchdowns, and only 2 interceptions...both of which came on tipped passes.

Coaches say his decision making was a huge asset for this year's team.

Binghamton's quarterback Wayne Bonsell is a silver football repeat winner, leading the Patriots to a 6 and 4 record, including a berth in the the Class Double A Sectional Title game.

Bonsell threw for 21 hundred yards and a 18 touchdowns.

Including a 4 touchdown game at rival Union-Endicott.

Only one player threw for more yards, and that was Sidney's Dylan Umbra.

"He's got it all. He's got a true gift. He can run, he can pass. He can pretty much do everything," says Warriors Running back Andrew Kozak.

Umbra was a one man wrecking crew for the Sidney offense.

He set the section's single season passing more, racking up more than 26-hundred yards through the air.

He also tossed 32 touchdowns and scored on 14 2-point conversions, leading section 4 in all 3 categories.

Umbra set a school record throwing for 330 yards against Whitney Point and 4 touchdowns.

In 4 seasons at Sidney, Umbra threw for nearly 47 hundreds yards, also a section 4 record.
