If you see Oregon wide receiver Devon Allen blazing by a defensive back on the field this fall, do not mock that poor defensive back for he's just one of the many competitors Allen will have run past by then.
If you don't believe me, you can watch Allen yourself when he's running in Rio, Brazil, as a member of the U.S. Olympic Team at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Allen qualified for the Olympics on Saturday evening, winning the 110-meter hurdlers with a personal best time of 13.03 seconds. The win earned Allen a spot on the U.S. track and field team, and he'll be heading to Rio next month.

Allen played in 12 games for Oregon last season, catching nine passes for 94 yards.
