Former Titan Damon Allen Retires from CFL

May 29, 2008

Toronto, Ontario, Canada - After 23 seasons of stardom in the Canadian Football League, former Cal State Fullerton quarterback Damon Allen has announced his retirement from the Toronto Argonauts.

Allen, 44, is the all-time professional football passing leader with 72,381 yards. He also is the third leading career rusher in the CFL with 11,920 yards. He played on four Grey Cup-winning teams and was the league's outstanding player as recently as 2005.

Allen led the Titans to back-to-back Pacific Coast Athletic Association championships in 1983 and 1984 and its only bowl berth in the 1983 California Bowl in Fresno. He also was a pitcher on the 1984 national championship baseball team. He is the younger brother of Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Allen of USC.

Allen's retirement leaves Toronto teammate Noel Prefontaine, a punter and kicker, as the only former Titan still playing professional football. He was a freshman in 1992 and the program was dropped after that season. He transferred to San Diego State.
