NFL star Josh Allen has name changed – to avoid confusion

Jaguars pass rusher Josh Allen and Bills quarterback Josh Allen are often confused in the NFL. But that’s over now

In the NFL, the days of confusing Jaguars pass rusher Josh Allen with Bills quarterback Josh Allen are over.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released a video in which their linebacker has announced that he has decided to change his last name. From the coming season, the back of his jersey with the number 41 will read “Hines-Allen”.

The 26-year-old made this decision to “honor my mother’s side of the family and the other relatives who have worn “Hines” and “Hines-Allen” on their jerseys.”

He added: “I am proud to continue this tradition on the back of my jersey and follow in the footsteps of my family who have worn the Hines-Allen surname with so much pride and joy.”

“My last name has changed, but I’m still the same person. And I will continue to play like this and even better. “

Hines-Allen comes from an athletic family

Hines-Allen’s sisters also have the same surname, including Myisha Hines-Allen, who plays for the Washington Mystics in the WNBA. His uncle Gregory Hines was drafted into the NBA by the Golden State Warriors in 1983.

In April, Hines-Allen signed a five-year contract worth 150 million euros with the Jacksonville Jaguars, 88 million of which is guaranteed. By the way: He plans to organize a jersey swap in September for fans who own his jersey with the last name “Allen.”
