Devon Allen

Star college football player, United States track and field athlete, and proud owner of one of the finest olympic packages in the world, Devon Allen captured the hearts of millions of Americans this summer with his outstanding performance in the Rio Olympic Games.

As a wide receiver for the University of Oregon, Allen was an integral part his college football team, helping them to finish second in the nation in 2014. What makes his young athletic career even more amazing is that at the same time he was racking up touchdowns and receiving yards for the Ducks, he was also competing for the Oregon outdoor track and field team, and training to compete in the 2016 Olympic games.

After an amazing Olympic trial run that earned him the title of second fastest hurdler in the World, and a respectable 5th place finish in the 110 meter hurdles in Rio, it’s safe to say that his athletic future is as bright as can be.

He recently announced that he will be quitting football in order to focus on track and field, with his eyes on taking home the gold in the next Olympics. We look forward to seeing him in all his spandex-clad glory in Tokyo 2020. Here are our top stories on Devon Allen:
