Keenan Allen Is one of the most consistent and efficient players in both his output as an NFL wide receiver and in his ability to stay regimented.

Keenan was not always a wide receiver. Cris walks us through how Nick Saban wanted Keenan to join Alabama as a Safety and how his brother, a QB, led him to the decision to go to Cal and make the switch to Wide Receiver.

Cris also dives deep into Keenan’s family life and how losing his father could’ve been a massive detriment to his development as a man and player, but something beautiful came from tragedy.

Keenan was disrespected in the NFL draft, going in round 3. Cris talks about how that can be a great motivator and Allen describes just that in how he has developed as a player with a “chip on his shoulder.”

Cris takes it to the NFL today. Who are Keenan’s WR role models and what having a gun slinger like Justin Herbert and a leader like Brandon Staley.

Cris loves Keenan’s mindset. They discuss how you stay consistent and become a journeyman in the NFL.

Cris finishes off the show by getting into Keenan’s music prowess and endeavors outside of football and how the Chargers are going to put it together the rest of the season.
