Burlington Central quarterback Jackson Alcorn is blessed with a plethora of solid receivers to throw to.

In a 41-6 Fox Valley Conference home win against Dundee-Crown, the junior signal caller utilized all his weapons.


With six players catching passes, Alcorn completed 17-of-24 passes for 295 yards and 5 touchdowns.

"That is probably Jackson's best game of his career," said Rockets coach Brian Iossi. "He was playing with a lot of confidence. We can run out eight guys at receivers. We have a ton of athletes at that position."

Alcorn threw 2 touchdowns passes to Brady Gilroy of 31 and 12 yards. The junior quarterback's first TD pass of the night was a perfectly thrown 32-yard pass to Caden West. Chase Powrozek (39 yards) and Michael Person (25 yards) also snared touchdown strikes from Alcorn.

"My offensive line gave me a lot of time to throw to," said Alcorn. "They get a lot of credit. I have a lot of great receivers to throw to. I worked a lot this summer on 7-on-7 drills with the receivers. We work a lot of after practice too. I was in a good rhythmn throwing the ball tonight."

West caught 4 passes for 92 yards while Person grabbed 4 for 60 and Powrozek corralled 3 for 59 yards.

The Rockets (1-1) had a balanced attack with 185 rushing yards to go with 295 passing yards for 480 total yards.

Dundee-Crown's lone highlight was a 93-yard touchdown pass from Zach Randl to Kali Freeman, who caught 6 passes for 116 yards.

Randl completed 10-of-17 passes for 169 yards and a score.

Sophomore Kadin Malone ran 11 times for 108 yards.

"Kali and Zach played well," said D-C coach Mike Steinhaus. "We have a lot of young players and new pieces. We are just trying to grind it out now."
