INDIANAPOLIS – Former Michigan State center Brian Allen performed on-field testing in front of NFL coaches and scouts on Friday in Lucas Oil Stadium on the fourth day of the NFL Combine.

Allen, who measured in at 6-1 and 300 pounds, was one of the top performers in the bench press on Thursday. He put up 225 pounds 27 times, which ranked tied for eighth among the offensive linemen at the combine.

On Friday, Allen ran a 40-yard dash time of 5.34 seconds, recorded a 26.5-inch vertical jump, and had a leap of 99.0 inches (8’3”) in the broad jump.

NEWS > Hinsdale Central's Luke Skokna thinks state trip will help next year

By Mark Perlman

It took quite an effort for Hinsdale Central's Luke Skokna just to make it to the Class 3A state wrestling tournament on Feb. 15 at the State Farm Center in Champaign.

Less than a week earlier, Skokna lost an agonizing, two-overtime quarterfinal match at the Hinsdale Central Sectional. That put his state hopes in jeopardy. But, the junior from Hinsdale persevered, winning his next three matches and finishing fourth in the 160-pound weight class to qualify for state. Although Skokna didn't win either of his matches in Champaign, it proved to be quite a season for Skokna (31-11).

"I was kind of nervous my first match. A little jittery," Skokna said ... READ FULL STORY
