CHARLESTON, S.C. - Charleston Southern football senior James Allen was named the Donovan's Custom Framing CSU Scholar-Athlete for the month of December as announced on Wednesday morning.
Allen receives the award after wrapping up a strong career in the CSU defensive backfield. Allen is majoring in Criminal Justice while minoring in Business Administration. He has posted a 3.675 GPA and graduated this December from CSU. He was a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District selection and added Big South All-Academic honors this year.
In addition to his prowess in the classroom, Allen put together one of the best seasons by a defensive back in Big South Conference history on his way to earning First Team honors. Allen led the Big South with six interceptions and returned a CSU and conference-record three for touchdowns in 2018.
He is currently tied for the FCS lead in pick-sixes on the year and is fifth in FCS in passes defended with 1.5 per game. Allen saved his best game of the season for his final conference game recording three interceptions and returned one 52 yards for a score in CSU's 12-7 win over Campbell.
