Rocket Point Guard Signs To Play D-1 Ball In N.C.

If you followed the fantastic run the Judson Rocket basketball team was on last year...all the way to the state final four tournament...you know the name Tony Allen.  While he's a big part of the Rocket basketball squad this year as a senior, he recently signed a National Letter of Intent to play next year at Campbell University in basketball-crazed North Carolina.  Tony is the son of Joslyn and David Allen from Converse. For Tony, the chance to go to a program like this is a great open door. "I have always wanted to go to a program that is on the rise and I'm excited about the opportunity to contribute and help continue the success..." Campbell University is the home of the "Fighting Camels" in Bules Creek, North Carolina and is a part of the Big South Conference.  The school is one of the up and coming NCAA division one basketball programs in the country.  Tony helped lead the way to a 37-2 season that went to the State Finals last year.  We congratulate him on this big step as a student-athlete.
