Darius Allen captured the Cliff Harris Award

The Little Rock Touchdown Club and Wright, Lindsey, Jennings LLP announced today that Colorado State-Pueblo University senior defensive end Darius Allen has been chosen as the recipient of the 2014 Cliff Harris Award, which is presented annually to the nation’s top small college defensive player.

Last year, Pierre Desir won the award. Desir was drafted in the 4th round by the Cleveland Browns.

Also for the first time the Cliff Harris Award will recognize the top vote recipients from all three divisions. Darius Allen represents the overall winner of the award and Division II. Tyre Coleman, defensive end from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, received the most votes representing Division III. There was a tie for the top vote representing NAIA between Takari Johnson, linebacker from Concordia Ann Arbor, and Missouri Valley College defensive lineman Ty Phillips.
