(Brian) Allen is still making the annual trek down I-57 to what's now called State Farm Center, but now the kids are watching him make history.
Two years after his brother Jack became the first state champ in school history, Allen capped a 49-0 season by winning his first title and third medal last season. Now, the reigning Class 3A champ at 285 pounds hopes to take one more victory lap in wrestling before heading off to Michigan State to play football with his older brother.
"It's kind of a weird feeling," Allen said."I've been wrestling longer than I've been playing football. This is kind of a bittersweet moment."
