December 22nd, 2022 by WCBC Radio

The Cumberland Times News reports after a little more than three months of playing football, Mikey Allen’s dream came through. The Fort Hill senior signed with Southern Utah on a full scholarship to play Division I football. Allen will go play for former Frostburg State head coach DeLane Fitzgerald, who is entering his second year coaching the Thunderbirds. Fitzgerald went 5-6 in his opening slate at the Football Championship Subdivision school.

“It’s been a long journey, the hard work paid off,” Allen said. “Coach Fitzgerald, he believed in me. As a player, that’s one thing you really want. He believed in me.”

Allen selected Southern Utah over a football offer from Frostburg State and basketball offers from Maine and Frostburg.

He had interest in football from Maryland, Villanova, Sacred Heart, Toledo and Lehigh, and looks in basketball from Albany, Youngstown State, Eastern Michigan, Robert Morris, Saint Francis and Navy.
