College Football: Wake Forest Defensive End Mike Allen Interview

Save to my locker

Head Coach leads the Wake Forest football team is Dave Clawson. Coach Clawson was the head football coach at Fordham University and Bowling Green State University before he coached the Deacons. Clawson and his team worked hard to rebuild the program by taking on powerful recruiting classes. He also tries to redshirt as many first-year students as he can. One of Coach Clawson’s picks that we talked to is Defensive End Mike Allen. Allen’s high school career was one to be reckoned with. Rivals.com ranked Allen as a four-star prospect and was the number 169 player in the nation in 2016. Scout.com also ranked him as the number 23 defensive end in the South. Allen had over 30 offers from schools across the country, which is extremely impressive. Allen is considered to be one of the highest solicited prospects that is at Wake Forest since Coach Clawson has been at the school. Mike Allen is regarded as a physical specimen, he stands 6-5 and weighs 270 lbs.

LRT Sports sat down with this well-spoken athlete to discuss why he picked Wake Forest, who was his most significant influence and what advice that he can give high school football athletes who are looking to play at the collegiate level.
