6-4 270 wow good size guy does he play left tackle? I hope he takes his injury slow, there will be plenty of time to show his stuff. Pro tackles can have long careers in the NFL but he needs to just listen to the trainers and go slow. Got to put another 30 or so LBS of muscle on him and he is a lock to go in the first round when his time comes. But again one injury if healed properly is OK a number of them are looked at closely wish him the best. Oh and by the way after seeing his picture I will say he is the second most good looking guy. Me being the first  ;D ...Boxman

He is so adorable, in a big guy kind of way of course.  I don't imagine Allen sees himself as "adorable" but I know Twirl that you know what I mean.

It's a shame he can't hold a candle to Boxman but may be he'll get better looking as he grows.   :beer1;  Here's to 2 good lookin guys.

A redshirt year will be good for him. It will  give a chance to mature and add some weight. It doesn't look like the Aggies are going any where this year anyway. You don't see many true freshmen playing on most teams.

he does not take his injuries seriously and is afraid that the coaches will think he is a wimp
I would call the coaches but they would think I was Raymond's mom
he likes to eat meat
he is not 270 he is more like 285--- not fat but football looking
he has a swollen knee and he played football today with the starters ?
last year he played three games with three broken bones in his foot
I threw a fit and he went to the doc
the coaches wanted him to play anyways
now, he is a legend at conroe high
when players tell the coaches they are hurt
they tell them to toughen up like Woodum
he went into the locker room last week after the conroe game and got a standing ovation
he was very touched
I am worried that he is not allowing time to heal
he just got over another injury
8 more weeks of football
and it does not look like they will be in any play-off games
he has been in football since July
thanks for your input
you guys are great

Bubba called me to ask me how to fry a piece of bacon
I hope all those Aggie jokes aren't true
so I went to AM while they were at the game I fried and froze 3 lbs of bacon for him
it was too hot for me for that game
and the fans stand up for the whole game and there is no breeze
why do Aggie's stand for the entire game

I hope the weather cools off for you Twirl.  It is raining, damp and chilly here in coastal Virginia today. 

You are the greatest mom.  Really, your son is very lucky.

Is he playing again?  Did his injuries heal up?

he is red shirted

his major is for 5 years
my husband and I had major horrible childhoods so we wanted our children to have it better

    Did you hear there aren't any cold drinks at College Station any more?
      They lost their recipe for ice.

yes, they do
but he says he does not have time for a girlfriend now
football is almost 24/7
and now he is in a whole school of smart people
he is having to really study for the first time in his life
plus he is learning to cook to save money
he would not buy a meal plan
we are waiting to hear if he is getting anymore money for next semester

Where was O.J. hiding right before the famous white Bronco Chase?
            On the A&M campus, because that's the last place you'll find a football player.


Hehehehehe!   :rofl; :rofl; :rofl; :rofl;

Now don't be mad at me Twirlie Girlie!

well, how can I argue with reason
last week's game Oklahoma beat us by 36 points
we were winning for the first five minutes of the game
I want to tell the coaches to put my son in the game and they will win
but he needs to be red shirted so he can play for 5 years
that is a funny joke
I don't guess OJ will be hiding now
maybe from inmates
A&M is go big, it takes him over 30 minutes to walk from on class to the other
all the cafeterias were located at locations he could not get to without walking a mile out of the way
a lot of the time the football players eat with the team
and Allen will not get up to eat breakfast at 4am
he has to be at football at 5am
I made him lots of food he is taking back
he is on his own
except we pay his rent and I make him food
and we love him to pieces
