    导出博客文章RIO DE JANEIRO -- Almost 7,000 miles away from the Olympic Stadium, the Oregon
    Ducks have started football practice with an eye on the season-opening game.On
    Monday night, the Ducks will break for a team meeting to turn their attention to
    Rio de Janeiro and watch wide receiver Devon Allen make his Olympic debut. Allen
    will run in the opening heats of the 110-meter hurdles, a berth he earned by
    winning the Olympic Trials in front of his college community at Hayward Field in
    Eugene, Oregon, last month.So confident Allen was going to be Rio-bound, he
    celebrated by leaping into the crowd and posing for selfies -- a move he planned
    the night before the trials.I asked some friends what should I do for my
    celebration? They were like, `You should jump into the stands where we are
    sitting, Allen said. They were sitting where my parents were sitting, so I
    scoped it out the day before to see how big the gap was. It was like a
    three-inch gap, so I knew I could make it. I would have jumped into the stands
    if I made third, but I was going in expecting to win.Allen is confident hell
    deliver again in Rio.Im really just going out there to win a gold medal, Allen
    said. My goal is to win every heat.His confidence soaring, Allen has got the
    next few weeks mapped out: Win a gold medal in Rio, return to Eugene on Aug. 23,
    regroup and then rejoin the Ducks. Maybe even in time for the Sept. 21
    season-opener.Hes not positive thats doable because hes been so focused on
    track, hell need time to transition back into football once he returns to
    Oregon.If I miss the first game, its not the end of the world, Allen said. A
    week of football practice may not be enough. I want to really feel into it
    before I return.That this two-sport ride is even happening at all is quite the
    comeback tale. Allen had a breakout freshman season for Oregon in 2014 with 41
    catches and seven touchdowns, only to tear his anterior cruciate ligament in the
    Rose Bowl.The recovery time was lengthy, but Allens ticket to Rio made it
    complete.This is the time of his life, and the three-time NCAA champion in
    hurdles has the resume to show how far hes come: Allen is the first collegian to
    win the 110-meter hurdles at the Olympic Trials since Renaldo Nehemiah of
    Maryland in 1980, the first to win both NCAA and trials titles in the same year
    since Lee Calhoun of N.C. Central in 1956, and his .18 margin of victory was the
    largest ever at the trials.Next up? A gold medal, of course, and this
    21-year-old Phoenix native believes in himself and the goals he sets.He learned
    early at Oregon how to juggle two sports, academics and my social life as a kid,
    and came back from an injury that could have forced others to scale back to one
    discipline.But Allen has eyes on competing in both sports as long as possible.
    He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds right now, and talks about getting it
    down to 4.2 for the NFL scouting combine.With a gold medal around his neck, he
    believes he can talk any potential NFL teams into also allowing him to continue
    his track career. Allen could also go pro in track after the Rio Olympics.As
    long as I dont sign a shoe endorsement, because the endorsement covers my
    likeness as an athlete and the NCAA owns my likeness as an athlete for my time
    in college, he said. I can compete in all the meets I want to professionally and
    win prize money and still play football.I just dont know if Id compete wearing
    an Oregon uniform or a T-shirt.He knows an argument can be made to transition
    into football only after the Olympics, but Allen doesnt see a need.American
    football is definitely more lucrative for great athletes, he said. Theres a lot
    of football players Ive been around who would be great track athletes, but they
    choose a different path. If I was born in Europe, Id probably be a soccer player
    because thats the popular sport there.A lot of U.S. athletes who are explosive
    and fast end up playing football because thats the most popular sport and its a
    sport where people can see their future, make some money in and live. Right now,
    Im considering doing both.---This story has been corrected to show that Allen
    runs the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds, not the 400.
