If you weren’t convinced that Tulare Union High’s Kazmeir Allen is THAT GOOD, the star running back provided another oh-my performance Friday night.
And he did it against an undefeated opponent in the rivalry game.
Allen, the nation’s scoring leader, erupted for seven touchdowns while leading Tulare Union in a 62-41 win against Tulare Western in the 53rd annual Victory Bell game.
Never miss a local story.
The Tribe (10-0, 5-0) finished the regular season champion of the East Yosemite League and a lock to be the top seed in the Central Section Division II playoffs.
Tulare Union’s run has been so impressive – outscoring opponents 578-158 for the season – that the Tribe arguably could’ve been the top seed even in the D-I bracket.
And it’s much because of Allen.
Facing a Tulare Western team (9-1, 4-1) that hadn’t allowed more than seven points in each of its past seven games, Allen carved up the Mustangs for 310 yards on the ground, as well as 246 receiving yards.
Allen’s seven touchdowns once again tied his own school record. He’s registered seven touchdowns in a game three times this season.
His season total is a whopping 55 touchdowns.
It’s no wonder Allen has scholarship offers from at least 13 NCAA Division I programs, including many from the Pac-12.
Allen might have generated the majority of his touchdowns and other statistics against opponents that stronger Division I programs might’ve also been able to blow out.
But as shown Friday, Allen can also cause plenty of danger against a formidable foe.
