Drew Wolitarsky, Canyon

Drew Wolitarsky, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound senior, took down another record held by current St. Louis Rams receiver Steve Smith as Canyon (Canyon Country, Calif.) defeated San Luis Obispo (Calif.) 42-9 on Friday during first-round Southern Section playoff game.

The Los Angeles Daily News reported that Wolitarsky caught nine passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns, enabling him to surpass Smith's state record of 271 career catches. Earlier in the season he had surpassed Smith's state record for career receiving yardage.

A four-year starter, Wolitarsky broke the record in the second quarter with a six-yard reception from quarterback Cade Apsay, who finished the game with 230 passing yards and three touchdowns, in addition to running twice for short touchdowns.

For the season, Wolitarsky has hauled in 85 passes for 1,237 yards and 14 touchdowns.
