Damon Allen is a former professional quarterback in the Canadian Football League, most recently with the Toronto Argonauts. Allen leads the alltime pro football passing chart with 72,381 passing yards; he surpassed Warren Moon’s total of 70,553 yards (in both the CFL and NFL combined) on September 4, 2006 at the annual Labour Day Classic. The 2007 season marked Allen’s twenty-third season in the CFL. He retired on May 28, 2008 at age 44.
Allen is the younger brother of NFL Hall of Famer Marcus Allen. Allen has been mentioned as one of the greatest CFL quarterbacks of all time; he has 4,220 more passing yards than second-place Anthony Calvillo as of the end of the 2010 CFL season. In addition, he stands fifteenth on the all time professional rushing list (third on the all time CFL list behind Mike Pringle and George Reed) and retired only 323 yards behind his brother Marcus.
With a quiet confidence, sense of fun and storytelling, Allen brings to audiences his unique perspective on leadership and teamwork. He might even throw one of his infamous passes into the crowd, so be ready!
