Dayton Business Journal – January 29, 2013

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Safety Will Allen plans to drop in on kids at two local schools on Wednesday.

The Dayton native — who played football at Wayne High School and Ohio State University — will makes stops at Wogaman Elementary and Louise Troy PreK-3 School in Dayton to stress the importance of education and literacy.

Allen serves as a statewide ambassador for After-School All-Stars Ohio, which provides free, after-school programming to more than 700 school children between Columbus, Dayton and Toledo.

He was chosen in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and went to the Steelers in 2010.

Allen has 250 tackles in his nine-year NFL career.
