Josh Allen is the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills of the NFL. He played college football at Wyoming. Receiving only one offer out of high school and having to play one year of junior college football at Reedley College, Allen was eventually recruited to Wyoming, where he led the Cowboys to a Mountain West Conference division title and two bowl games. He was drafted by the Bills in the first round (7th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft, becoming the highest drafted NFL player from the University of Wyoming and the highest drafted quarterback in Bills' history.
Allen started his professional career as Buffalo's backup quarterback, but was quickly thrust into the starting position after a dismal performance by Nathan Peterman. In his second year as a starter, he led the Bills to their first 10-win season and just second playoff appearance since 1999.
