Ryan Allen Career

Allen attended West Salem High School in Salem, Oregon, where he played on the football team for two years as a punter/kicker. In 2007, he was named to the all-state first team

In 2008, Allen walked on at Oregon State along with fellow punter Johnny Hekker. As a freshman, he was red shirted. He did not play in 2009 as he remained behind Hekker on the team’s depth chart. He then went to Louisiana Tech, and in 2010, he played in 12 games, averaging 40.8 yards on 60 punts. He had 21 punts go inside the 20-yard line. Four of his punts went over 50 yards, including a season-long punt of 66 yards.

In 2011, Allen punted 83 times and set a school record with a 46.3 yard average per punt. He ranked first in the nation with 39 punts inside the 20 yard line, and he had a season-long punt of 72 yards against Mississippi State. In the Poinsettia Bowl, he averaged 43.2 yards on five punts. Allen was named to the All-WAC first team and won the Ray Guy Award as the best college football punter.

Allen averaged 48.0 yards on 45 punts as a senior in 2012. He had 21 punts that were longer than 50 yards and 20 punts that were downed inside the 20 yard line. Allen had a career-long 85-yard punt against New Mexico State. He led the NCAA in punting yards per punt, was a unanimous All-American, and won the Ray Guy Award for the second time, the first punter to ever win back-to-back Ray Guy Awards. He is also the last American to date to have won this award; the four subsequent winners (Tom Hornsey, Tom Hackett twice, Mitch Wishnowsky, and Michael Dickson) have all been Australians.

Two punters—Jeff Locke and Sam Martin—were selected in the 2013 NFL Draft; Allen was not. He signed a standard three-year contract as an undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots on April 27, 2013. During training camp, Allen beat out veteran Zoltán Meskó, who was released at the final roster cutdown.

Allen was named the Week 14 AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his contributions to the Patriots win over San Diego Chargers.In Super Bowl XLIX, he punted four times for 196 yards and set a Super Bowl record with a 64-yard punt, helping the Patriots to a 28-24 victory over the Seattle Sea hawks. On July 25, 2015, the Patriots signed Allen to a three-year contract extension; the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement allows undrafted rookies to sign extensions after two seasons. The new deal, which runs through the 2018 season, has $6.1 million in new money, including a $2 million signing bonus and $1 million in guaranteed salary in 2016.

In 2016, Allen was praised for his performance in the Patriots’ Week 3 win, 27–0, over the Houston Texans. He punted seven times, averaging over 49 yards per punt; none of his punts were returned, and all of them left the Texans starting at or behind their own 20-yard line. His performance earned him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. On February 5, 2017, Allen was part of the Patriots team that won Super Bowl LI. In the game, Allen punted four times for 166 yards as the Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 34–28 in overtime. Allen made his third Super Bowl appearance the next season for the Patriots in Super Bowl LII; however, the Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 41–33, and Allen never punted during the game. The next year, his former college teammate Johnny Hekker broke his Super Bowl record for the Los Angeles Rams, though the Patriots would win that game and give Allen his third Super Bowl championship.

Ryan Allen Interview

How Hekker, Ryan Allen became weird stars of boring Super Bowl

Update on: 04.02.2019

The game featured 14 punts as a combination of good defense and bad offense made for a boring punt-fest for most of the game.

Rams punter Johnny Hekker punted nine times and Patriots punter Ryan Allen punted five times. Allen and Hekker kept the game as a battle of field position. Hekker placed five punts inside the 20 and Allen had three. All of those three were inside the 10. Patriots special teams ace Matthew Slater downed it inside the 10 twice.

“Our kicking game was really good, too,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “I don’t know how many times we pinned them inside the 10-yard line. It was at least three. … That helped our defense out, too. They were on a long field several times.”

Allen kept the Rams pinned deep inside their own territory, and an argument could be made that he deserved MVP consideration in the game.

Hekker had a 65-yard punt that broke the record for the longest punt in Super Bowl history. It broke Allen’s record of 64 set in Super Bowl XLIX against the Seahawks.

The Rams became the first team in Super Bowl history to punt on their first eight possessions.

Patriots defensive play-caller Brian Flores is expected to become the head coach of the Dolphins on Monday. The fans of South Florida must be excited after watching the performance by the Patriots defense on Sunday night under Flores’ direction as the Rams were held to three points and 260 yards.

“I know this is a challenging time for him between his other opportunities he has career-wise and putting everything he had into this game and our football team to fulfill his commitment to this group of guys,” Belichick said. “We’re all extremely happy for him personally but really appreciative of what he did on a professional level to help our football team.”

It was the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history at 16 combined points. New England’s 13 points are the fewest by a winning team in the Super Bowl, too. … The 3-0 halftime score was the second-lowest scoring first half in Super Bowl history. In Super Bowl IX, the Steelers led the Vikings 2-0 at halftime. The 3-3 score at the end of the third quarter was the fewest combined points in Super Bowl history. … The Patriots held the Rams scoreless in the first half, just as they did the Chiefs in the AFC Championship. The Chiefs and Rams had the No. 1 and 2 scoring offenses, respectively, this season.

The Patriots lost safety Patrick Chung early in the third quarter when he broke his right arm on a tackle of Todd Gurley.
Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein’s 53-yard field goal was the second-longest in Super Bowl history. Bills kicker Steve Christie hit a 54-yard field goal in Super Bowl XXVIII.
The roof of Mercedes-Benz Stadium was closed during the game. It was opened for the pregame festivities, including the national anthem and the flyover. It had been closed earlier during the team warm-ups.
