My father, Ron Allen. My Dad was a high school football/basketball/lacrosse coach for over 32 years. I was able to be in the front row to watch him change the life of so many. I was also able to be one of those he coached. He taught me so many invaluable life lessons that I carry on to this day. It has been really amazing later in life to see him get awarded for all of the impact he has had on the community. He was recently inducted into the Delaware African American Hall of Fame.
Q: What is your favorite quote?
