Born March 26, 1960 in San Diego, California, Allen would later go on to star in American Football at the University of Southern California. Unlike another former USC star running back, he did not butcher his ex-wife and a waiter. (That's an entirely different story.)

Pro Career Notes
Allen was selected 10th overall in the 1982 NFL draft by the Oakland Raiders and was chosen as The Sporting News rookie of the year in 1982. He would go on to earn Pro Bowl births in 1982, 1984, 1985, 1987 and 1993 along with the Super Bowl XVIII Most Valuable Player award.
