I live in Eugene, OR and have been following Allen. What's really unbelievable is that he has only run the event (42" hurdles) less than a dozen times, including preliminary rounds at the PAC 12's and Regionals. The third time he ran the event, he lined up against Asthon Eaton at the Oregon Twilight, and lost by a little over a meter. At that point you knew he was going to be special, because he was still participating in Spring football. He ran 10.5 early in the season, but he can probably do 10.2 now. He ran the 400 Intermediates at the PAC 12's, with the worst form I've ever seen. The announcer even stated, "Allen has absolutely run himself out of this race with his poor form...." When he came off of the last hurdle, he was 4th. or 5th., and made a dash to the line finishing second by .05 of a second in 51.19. The time wasn't great, but if you had seen the race, you know if he gets his steps down, he'll at least run 48 seconds. He ran 20.75 in the 200 as an 11th. grader. Oregon's 4X400 relay squad was running 3:07, until they put Allen on team as the third man. He ran 46 seconds and the team lowered its time to sub 3:04. All these accomplishments as a TRUE track Freshman, and he's on scholarship for football where he caught two touchdowns in the Spring game. He's a great football prospect. Enough said.
