Introducing … Brian Allen
School: Hinsdale Central (Hinsdale, Ill.)
Year: Class of 2014
My dream job, outside of being a professional athlete, would be … a college football coach.
If you’d see my iPod, you’d find … a little bit of everything, but mainly country and a little rap.
I currently drive a … Toyota Tacoma
Someday, I’d like to be driving a … Ford F-150 Raptor or a Range Rover
The best part of my hometown is … the tradition and history. My dad and relatives grew up in Hinsdale and now my brothers and I have. I take a lot of pride in being part of my high school’s athletics.
My dream city to be living in 10 years from now is … Back in Hinsdale where I started.
The ultimate compliment is when I get compared with … My older brother who is the starting center at Michigan State (football).
If I could be teammates with one pro athlete in any sport, it’d be …. Lebron James, Marshall Yanda, or Mike Iupati.
If I could meet anybody, it would be … Will Ferrell
The websites I couldn’t live without are … Rivals, 247Sports, facebook and instagram.
The greatest meal ever is … Thanksgiving dinner.
Best movie of all-time is … Warrior.
My can’t-miss TV show is … Criminal Minds.
My favorite pro team is … Chicago Bears.
The worst thing about pro sports is … they are not played with the same passion college football is played with.
Best uniforms in sports belong to … Oregon, no brainer.
One thing my coach always says that I’ll never forget … You’re either getting better or worse – never in between.
I will consider myself a success when I … know I’ve given everything I’ve got and see where that takes me. That’s all you can do is give it everything.
If I won the lottery, the first thing I’d buy is … a nice house.
If I could tell one person thanks, it would be … God, for everything he has blessed me with. I’m so grateful for everything he has done for me and my family.

JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
Booker T. Washington (Miami), the top team in the USA Today HSS Super 25 for high school football, capped off its dream season last week by winning their second-straight state title.
Even more impressive is that the state title win marked the Tornadoes’ 26th straight.
Do you know how hard it is to win 26 consecutive high school football games?
How can you dominate teams night in and night out when they “see you coming.”
WHAT I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF RIGHT NOW …
