As a junior, Robert Allen had 10 catches on offense for two touchdowns. He played the slotback postition. On defense, he had one interception at corner.

"He is a good player now, but he has the potential to be a great player in the future," says teammate and good friend, Jermaine Williams.

"I have a great work ethic," says Allen. "I am always working the hardest I can. I have great determination and I can play anywhere I am needed to."

Allen says that Mike Anderson is trying to talk him up to the Colorado coaches because Robert has wanted to go to CU for a long time. "That is the school I have always liked. I like the staff there and they have had a lot of successful players go on into the league. Colorado is my leader, by far. I also like Arizona and Arizona State.

"I was supposed to go to Arizona for junior day, but I couldn't make it. It would be cool to stay in-state. They have a very good program down there."

He has plans of going to both in-state camps at UA and ASU. He may make CU's, as well.

Allen carries a 3.0 core GPA and is taking the SAT on March 12th. He would like to major in Computer Graphics.
