Lexington Catholic Quarterback Beau Allen recieves offer from Neal Brown, Troy

@BeauAllen11

Beau Allen, a 6’2 180 pound sophomore out of Lexington Catholic, added to an already impressive offer sheet yesterday by receiving an offer from Neal Brown to play at Troy University.

Allen has an obvious connection to Troy as former Lexington Catholic head coach Mark Perry just took a job as the director of football operations on Brown’s staff.

The Lexington native earned an offer from Kentucky before the start of his sophomore season after an outstanding performance at Kentucky’s annual high school 7-on-7 tournament. Allen has established a great relationship with the Kentucky staff, particularly quarterbacks coach Darin Hinshaw.

Allen impressed in his first full season as the starter at Lex Cath, throwing for 2,873 yards and 33 touchdowns with just 9 interceptions at a completion percentage of 62% in 13 games.

It’s been quite the year for Allen as he spent the summer traveling the country to various campuses including USC, UCLA, Texas A&M, Ohio State, and Auburn. He currently holds offers from Bowling Green State, Kentucky, and Eastern Kentucky.

Take a look at Allen sophomore year highlights below:

Go Cats.

    So I guess you don’t think that Tim Couch guy did not help us. Barker we will never know, looked great 1st half vs USM but back injuries are tough. May or may not have worked out if he stayed healthy.

    Does anyone know if this Allen kid is a legacy prospect? Is he by chance the son of Bill Allen that was a reserve QB for UK in the 80s?

    Played with his dad Bill (who went to UK) in high school, he was like Couch in the mid 80’s.

      They’re letting the fan base know that a kid the staff offered before his sophomore season is now getting even more attention from other schools. It’s a pretty common theme with a good portion of the guys UK recruits, and it’s nice as a fan to know that the staff is building these relationships early and they aren’t complete whiffs of scholarships
