Here's a look at some of the top wide receivers returning to action in the city of Boston:

- Latin Academy senior Alex Guerrier is a starting wide receiver that excels at catching the ball, even with heavy traffic over the middle of the field.

- Brighton Senior Chris Desanero is small but very quick and powerful. The wide receiver does a lot with his touches during games and he is a team captain.

- South Boston junior Pannel Davis is one of the team’s best players. No matter where the ball goes, you can guarantee the 6-foot, 170-pound Pannel will be there. He tends to make his quarterback look good.

- Latin Academy junior Devaughn Riley is both a star football and basketball player. He is overcoming a serious knee injury but his coach believes he is still a big threat.

- Boston English senior Francis Okoyo is 6-1, 175 pounds. He has made incredible improvement since he first started playing three years ago.
