Happy Birthday USA Track and Field: Devon Allen

Devon Allen is an American multi-sport athlete.  He was born on December 12, 1994 in Phoenix, Arizona.  He attended, and was a multi sport standout, at Brophy Prep, an all male Jesuit high school in Phoenix. 
His primary sports in college were football and track, and he competed  two seasons in NCAA track.  He played wide receiver for the University of Oregon football team, while also competing for the Oregon outdoor track and field team in the 110 meters and 400 meters hurdles. He was PAC 12 Champion, and NCAA Champion in the 110 metre hurdles in 2014, and was US Olympic Trials Champion in the same event in 2016. 
Allen was selected to the US team for the 2016 Summer Olympics, after achieving a personal best of 13.03 while winning the US Olympic Trials in the 110 meter hurdles. At the Olympics, Allen ran 13.41 seconds in an effort to qualify for the semifinals in the 110 meter hurdles in Rio. Allen then ran 13.31 to finish 5th in the finals.
Despite having two years of track eligibility left, Allen felt that he had accomplished all he could at the university level.  He decided to leave behind his dreams of going pro both in NFL Football and Track and Field, and signed as a pro only in track with Oregon based sponsor Nike.  

Happy Birthday Devon Allen!
