This summer figures to be a pivotal one for Louisiana Tech freshman quarterback Aaron Allen.

After appearing in just two games and passing for a single touchdown this season, the Ridge Point High grad will be out to fine-tune all the skills that first attracted the Bulldogs to him as a top dual-threat prospect.

While at Ridge Point High, Allen earned a reputation as an accurate passer with uncanny escapability skills. He led Ridge Point to a 9-2 mark and perfect 7-0 record in district play as a senior, throwing for 2,233 yards and 21 touchdowns on the way to twice being named District 20-6A Offensive MVP and being rated among the top 40 dual-threat quarterbacks in the country.

Allen finished his career at Ridge Point as the school’s all-time leader in single-game and career passing yards.

According to the school’s website, he chose Louisiana Tech over the likes of Tulane, Southern Miss, Army, North Texas, Rice, and UNLV.
