Seven touchdowns in one game.
Farfetched and something out of fantasyland for most football players – at any level.
But it’s becoming fairly common for Tulare High’s prized running back Kazmeir Allen.
Common enough that Allen, powered by games such as the one he enjoyed Friday night, likely has vaulted into the national high school lead for TDs scored.
Never miss a local story.
The highly pursued recruit erupted for seven more, tying the school record he set earlier this season, as The Bee’s Central Section fourth-ranked Tulare downed Delano 56-10 at Bob Mathias Stadium.
Allen racked up five touchdowns, one on a 98-yard reception, by halftime of the East Yosemite League game.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound back finished with 11 carries for 198 yards and six rushing touchdowns.
For the season, Allen has an amazing total of 37 touchdowns – 29 rushing, seven receiving and one on a return.
And that should lead the entire nation, based on teams who have reported their statistics to Maxpreps.com. Among those ahead of him on the list as of late Friday, none had more than 33.
It was just two weeks ago that Allen piled up seven touchdowns for the first time, accomplishing the feat in a 69-47 win against Dinuba.
To put some context into how fast Allen can be on the breakaway, he finished sixth in the 100 at the CIF State Track and Field Championships last spring in 10.48 seconds.
Allen’s NCAA Division I interest includes Cal, Arizona, Oregon State, Boise State and Colorado State.
