During my Hall of Fame visit I will post many photos for everyone to view. Unfortunately I will not be able to write long blogs due to time restraints.
2009 Hall of Fame Enshrinees Display
In 1989 I was hired at Long Beach State as their Special Teams Coach by George Allen. George was inducted into the PRO Football Hall of Fame in 2002. I was invited to the induction ceremony by George's family but was unable to attend because I was the Special Teams Coordinator at that time for the Baltimore Ravens.
In the photo below I'm standing next to the man who started the Nickle Defense. George had a lot of 'firsts' in his coaching career. First Coach to hire a full time special teams coach. First coach to have a return specialist and a long snapper on his roster. George was a pioneer when it came to defense and the kicking game.
"It was a thrill and honor to work for George Allen a Hall of Fame Coach."
