WATERTOWN — Pitching or catching, Brandon Allison can do it all.
Alternating between quarterback and receiver, he accounted for a pair of big first-quarter touchdowns in Watertown’s 34-0 homecoming conquest of Red Boiling Springs on Thursday at historic Robinson Stadium.
Allison caught a 50-yard pass from quarterback Heath Price, who then ran in the two-point conversion. He then threw a 60-yard scoring strike to slot back Elijah Maklary on a wheel route. Running back Zac Hill scored on a two-point run.
Keon Dotson’s 15-yard jet-sweep touchdown built a 22-0 lead going into the second quarter.
Price, alternating by series at quarterback with Allison, scored on a 2-yard sneak in the second period for a 28-0 halftime lead.
The junior-varsity tacked on the final touchdown in the fourth quarter as J.R. Pharman took a swing pass from RayQuan Berg 60 yadrs to the house.
The Purple Tigers, who improved to 3-1, will play host to Southside next Thursday with kickoff moved back to 7 p.m. due to parent-teacher conferences.
