The Stallions are doing their best to keep their championship roster in order. After a couple months of speculation, the Stallions brought back one the staples of their Defense Brian Allen. Allen left the Stallions in August of 2022 after spending 17 days with the Saints in training camp.
Originally a 5th round pick out of Utah in 2017 by the Steelers, Allen has spent time with seven NFL teams in his career. Allen has appeared in Twenty NFL games in his career, totaling Six tackles. In 2020 he started one game for the 49ers before being released. In his NFL career Allen has earned $1,539,240 throughout Five Seasons.
Allen would be drafted by the Stallions in the 8th round of the 2022 USFL Draft. Allen would be a valuable member of the Championship Stallions totaling 41 tackles, and one interception for a touchdown. Allen’s veteran presence in a young Alt-League proved to pay off dividends as the veteran cornerback was a part of one of the better secondaries in the USFL.
Allen joins a secondary that returns six members from 2022. With the loss of DeMarquis Gates, Brady Buck and Scooby Wright possibly going off to a wrestling career, the Stallions defense could be in flux come 2022. Despite the success of a 2022 championship, the 2023 teams looks to be a different beast however, with Skip Holtz, Bo Scarbourgh, and J’Mar Smith returning back to Birmingham, the Stallions are still the team to beat in 2023.
