Allen to play in East-West Shrine Game

Dejon Allen has accepted an invitation to play in the Jan. 20 East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Fla., according to agent Kenny Zuckerman.

Allen also was invited to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl at the Rose Bowl. Because the two all-star games are played on the same day, Allen had to make a choice.

The NFL assistants who will coach the East-West game will be selected following the league’s regular season.

Allen, who is 6 feet 3 and 295 pounds, completed his UH eligibility at the end of this past Saturday’s game against BYU at Aloha Stadium.

Allen reached an agreement with Zuckerman, who has represented Olin Kreutz, Dominic Raiola, Tyson Alualu, Kamalei Correa, Isaac Sopoaga, John Estes and Davone Bess.

    Dejon Allen play it smart.
    Let your agent do the talking.
    You do what you gotta do.

    After Ursua’s injury Allen and St. Juste were the two best offensive options so you can understand the limitations with the offensive philosophy. Shorten the game and limit the chance of turning over the ball. It took a toll on the defense but when they did (the offense) take too many chances there was mostly failure, so I think we should cut Rolo some slack (as far as the boring offense is concerned) there. Just not enough receivers that Brown had trust in. Rolo did have one real bad game (Utah St) so that is a concern. All part of the learning process. Next year the offensive dynamic will be much different (way more options), Brown just has to develop trust with his protection schemes and route reading. Practice

    The error in logic of your statement is that all other College Football teams had no injuries and are all healthy. Hawaii is not that one special butterfly that has injuries, dismissals, suspensions and medical retirements. All college teams have the same problems with digging into their deep depth chart.

    BYU was decimated with injuries this season and whipped Hawaii at Aloha Stadium. Diocemy couldn’t even get the record until the end of the game in garbage time when BYU had there 2nd and 3rd string defense in. The mainland players talent level on the depth chart s not D1 level.

    Coaching changes needed. OC and DC

    Recruiting the Mainland needs help.

    #5 you pointed out your own error in logic – talent level. While I was not always impressed with the recruiting during the JJ era, in the earlier years players who were 1st or 2nd team were slowly pushed down the depth chart by later recruits and it wasn’t a matter of favoring his own recruits.
