Bowling Green senior tight end Cameron Wallace, 6-foot-7, 210 pounds, is built like a purple crayon.
And Wallace helped color the Purples' 40-14 thumping of host Lexington Catholic in the Republic Bank Bluegrass Bowl Friday night.
Wallace, son of Bowling Green Coach Kevin Wallace, had three touchdown catches to help the three-time defending Class 5A champ Purples to their 46th consecutive victory, the third longest winning streak in state history.
Trinity set the state record with 50 victories in a row from 1988-91. Boyle County had a 47-game winning streak from 1999-2002.
Never miss a local story.
Bowling Green will try for No. 47 next week at home against St. Xavier.
Wallace snagged TD passes of 9, 12 and 17 yards from Campbell Gott to account for the Purples' first three scores and stake them to a 19-7 lead. Wallace came into this season with 10 career catches for 137 yards and two TDs.
His night's work against Lexington Catholic: six catches for 66 yards, three TDs.
Jacob Yates broke loose for a 75-yard TD sprint at the end of the third quarter to put Lexington Catholic in a hole it couldn't dig out of.
Yates, who carried the ball only 15 times last year as a sophomore, ran 22 times for 119 yards and two TDs Friday night.
Gott was 14-for-22 for 152 yards and three TDs.
While Wallace, Gott and Yates starred on offense for Bowling Green, Ben Holt was the standout on defense.
The 5-11, 220-pound senior middle linebacker, who had six sacks in last week's win over Mercer County, terrorized the Knights all night.
Holt refused to be blocked as he constantly pressured Lexington Catholic quarterback Reese Ryan. He finished with seven tackles and two sacks.
Ryan completed 19 of 34 passes for 200 yards. He was picked off twice. Ryan got both of the Knights' TDs on short scrambles.
