This. Is. Awesome and I can’t believe we missed it when it came out a few weeks ago. Take a few minutes and read Chase Goodbread’s piece on Josh Allen. NFL.com spent time detailing Allen’s upbringing, high school career, journey to UK, his breakthrough season and what’s next for the New Jersey native. Allen had to overcome a great deal to even put himself in a position to play at Kentucky, and things didn’t necessarily become easier in Lexington. Allen battled from being a two-star recruit to a likely top 10 NFL draft pick, and over the last year he’s had to put in all this work while also being a father.
I wouldn’t do this piece justice by picking-and-choosing quotes/blurbs, so read the entire thing, but allow me to post just this one. The end of this story on Allen will give you goosebumpsh:
Well done Chase Goodbread and best of luck to Josh Allen as he tries to rack in more awards tonight during the Home Depot College Football Award Show tonight on ESPN at 7 p.m. Read the entire profile HERE.
