EXTRA POINTS

I took it rough and kind of hung my head. So he got the scholarship and as I got better, I thought I could definitely go play somewhere else. That’s how I made the decision to transfer once that time came.” Allen transferred to Louisiana Tech and went on to become the best punter in the NCAA.
