In return, the Packers are receiving two high draft picks, one in both the first and second rounds, as well…

On January 6th, the Kaukauna freshman received his first scholarship offer: a full ride to Division 1 Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. For Allen, that moment couldn’t have been more surreal. “I wasn’t expecting it so early. It came out…
