New Canaan’s Zach Allen, a 2015 graduate of NCHS, was in the spotlight this weekend when he was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Allen recently wrapped up a spectacular career as a defensive end for the Boston College Eagles, and today’s Rams by the Numbers takes a look back at his college and high school careers
65
Spot where the Arizona Cardinals selected New Canaan’s Zach Allen of Boston College in the 2019 NFL Draft on Friday. The pick was the first of the third round.
2010
The last year in which a former FCIAC player was selected in the top 100 of the NFL Draft. Vlad Ducasse of Stamford was the No. 61 pick that year.
61
Total tackles for Allen during his senior season at Boston College last fall. That included 26 solo tackles.
15
Tackles for a loss for Allen, a number which led the Eagles in 2018. He also ranked second on the team with 6.5 sacks, and had one interception, eight passes defended, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.
199
Career tackles for Allen, a mark which included 100 during his junior campaign. He also had 40.5 tackles for a loss, and 16.5 sacks while playing in 50 games.
34-5
Record of the New Canaan Rams’ football team during Allen’s sophomore through senior seasons. The Rams went 14-1 in 2013 and 11-1 in 2014, winning state championships by beating rival Darien both years.
33
Career sacks, an NCHS record, for Allen during his three seasons with the varsity Rams. That puts him more than 10 sacks ahead of the second place total of 19.5 registered by Connor Buck from 2011 to 2013.
13.5
Sacks for Allen during his senior year at NCHS, yet another Ram record. Ryan Shullman had 13 in 2010.
4
Sacks in a game, a Ram record shared by Allen (2014 vs. Darien), Adam DiFulvio (2004 vs. Stamford), and Garrett Braden (2017 vs. St. Joseph).
259
Allen’s career tackles for New Canaan High School. That number places him fourth in the Ram record books.
