BERKELEY - Cal junior wide receiver Keenan Allen is scheduled to be a guest Monday afternoon on KNBR 1050 AM at 2:30 p.m. PT on the Damon Bruce show.
Allen has been Cal's most decorated player prior to the 2012 season, earning preseason All-American accolades from nearly every media source and also on several national watch lists including the Maxwell Trophy given annually to college football's top player. He is also considered to be one of the top candidates for the Biletnikoff Award honoring the nation's top receiver after being one of 10 semifinalists in 2011. The watch list for the 2012 Biletnikoff Award will be released Tuesday.
Allen is coming off a 2011 campaign in which he caught 98 passes for 1,343 receiving yards and six touchdown catches, with the receptions and receiving yards both ranking second on Cal's all-time single season lists behind school record holders Dameane Douglas (100 receptions in 1998) and Geoff McArthur (1,504 receiving yards in 2003). He returns the fourth-highest per-game averages from 2011 of all active Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) players for both receptions (7.54) and receiving yards (103.31).
Allen has career totals of 144 receptions, 1,833 receiving yards and 11 touchdown catches in two seasons at Cal. His 144 career receptions are only 58 shy of all-time school leader Geoff McArthur's career total of 202 from 2000-04.
