Time flies. Only a couple of years ago, Trevon Allen was a precocious sophomore riding the coattails of talented, disciplined, mature upperclassmen like Victor Sanders, B.J. Blake, Nate Sherwood, Perrion Callendret, Jordan Scott and Arkadiy Mkrtychyan on an Idaho Vandals team than finished 22-9 overall and 14-4 in the Big Sky Conference.
