RED: Life Lessons from a Father
Harold "Red" Allen, the father of NFL Hall of Fame Running Back, Marcus Allen and CFL Hall of Fame Quarterback, Damon Allen has earned the privilege to be called a father. With all the responsibilities that come with being a father and all that it entails, to be called one by your child is one of the greatest honors that can be given. For the six children of the Allen family, when they looked for a role model they didn’t have to look far — Harold "Red" Allen sat across the dinner table.
Red was also their little league coach, history teacher, guidance counselor and many other job titles that can’t fit on a standard one-page resume. Along with Gwendolyn, his wife of 57 years, they have formed quite a team and delivered a message of hard work, faith and love that has been embraced by their children.
Darius, the youngest of the family, in a gesture of honor and respect, has passed on his father’s message in this gem of a book.
