(WBNG Binghamton) Here's a look at our top receivers for 2011.

The Waverly Wolverines made it to the state semi-finals and one of the main reasons was the play of wide receiver Ryan Hewitt.

Hewitt led section 4 in receptions with 37, yards with 829 and touchdowns with 9.

In the sectional final against Greene, he had 4 catches for 175 yards and two Tds.

Hewitt led a receiving corps that had 3 guys with more than 300 yards receiving each.

Binghamton's Kevin Rowe made a big splash early in the season, catching 7 passes for 144 yards and 2 touchdowns against Monroe-Woodbury in the second week of the season.

He also had 2 TD catches against Horseheads.

For the season, Rowe caught 35 passes for for almost 600 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Rowe was one of 3 Patriots with at least 14 catches this season.

Walton is known as a running team, but when they did throw, it usually went to receiver Nick Shiels.

Last year's Class D defensive MVP had 14 catches for 464 yards and 5 touchdowns.

That comes out to 33 yards per reception, highest in section 4.

He also ran for nearly 600 yards, meaning Shiels contributed more than 1-thousand yards of offense in less than 90 touches.

Owego's Matt Warchocki made an impact right from the start of the season.

In the team's first game he had an 83 yard touchdown reception and never looked back.

He finished with 15 catches for 421 yards and 5 touchdowns.

His best game came against Johnson City when he had 2 catches for 92 yards and 2 TDs.

Horseheads may have struggled on offense this season, but one bright spot was the play of senior wide receiver Mark Manganaro.

Manganaro caught 22 passes for nearly 300 yards and 3 touchdowns.

He also had a 52 yard reception in the Ernie Davis Classic, where he caught a slant over the middle and ran away from the defense.
