Fond du Lac defensive back Braelon Allen has been selected as the WSN Spring Football Defensive Player of the Year.
Fond du Lac’s Braelon Allen was a man-child in what was only his third year in high school, as he’ll graduate a year early and head to the University of Wisconsin.
Allen led the Cardinals to a perfect 7-0 mark, capped off by a 71-47 win over Kimberly. He finished first on the team with 57 tackles, adding five tackles for loss, three sacks, a forced fumble, and an interception, playing mostly at safety but also at linebacker and even defensive end.
You have to mention his offensive numbers also, where he ran for 1,047 yards and 21 touchdowns with two more scores through the air.
Allen was recently named a two-way First Team All-State selection by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association.
Other finalists for the award were Kyle Dietzen of Omro, Brooks Empey of Stoughton, Isaac Hamm of Sun Prairie, and Avery Johnson of Lomira.
