Allen took 5th place in the 110 hurdles at the Rio Olympics.

WR Devon Allen faced the media for the first time since returning from the Rio Olympics where he represented the country in the 110 meter hurdles. Allen finished fifth in the event and said he was encouraged by the fact his teammates were cheering him on back in Eugene.

Allen also said that he has not yet made a decision about turning pro in track. He did say that  it was possible for him to compete in professional track and still play football, but if he did turn pro he could keep prize money from races but not be paid for endorsements, which is a major part of the money professional track stars earn.

One thing he did make clear though, that he want to return to the football field because of his love of the game and his comraderies with the coaches and teammates.

The media event video is broken down into two parts.
