Iowa State red shirt junior tight end Chase Allen returns after missing five games last year with injury.
Allen..the son of former uni head football coach Terry Allen..was a second team all Big 12 selection as a freshman.
Allen is determined to return strong this fall.
“Yeah at the beginning of last year I felt like I was playing my best football and if you look at last year it kind of mirrored that reallyt whenerver I went down in the Oklahoma game it just made me more hungry to get back out there now that I am fully heeled up I just want to get back out there. I mean still seems aways away right now but I know it is going to be here real real soon we are just trying to take it one day at a time in spring ball set really high standard foor ourselves as a tight end group.”
Allen is a 2-time Big 12 First team All-Academic selection.
