After setting a school record for playing in every single game in his college career, 54 matchups in all, Beau is not the only member of the Allen clan to achieve Badger greatness. He followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Fred T. Westphal, a six-time All-American swimmer, and uncle John Westphal, a two-year letterwinner for Badgers Football.
While football is the main focus on his NFL journey, Allen developed versatility in high school as a four-sport student, participating in football, hockey, track and field and winning a state championship in lacrosse. And like any good Minnesotan, Allen’s first love is for the great outdoors.

Listed at 333 pounds, it takes a lot of delicious food to build that muscle mass. Allen started early, thanks to his first job at Detello’s, a pizza and pasta restaurant in Minnesota.
“It’s a mom-and-pop shop that we went to all the time growing up, so I worked there after my freshman year. There was a deal where you could make a meal for yourself the night you worked, so that summer, I probably gained 30 pounds and got above 300. I love that place. Every time I go home, I go back there.”

When writing a list of the best-dressed Eagles, Allen may not be an obvious choice, but with style like this, it’s tough to list him anywhere but No. 1.
