has been named as the 2014 Colts recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award.

The Ed Block Courage Award Foundation’s goal is to find homes for abused children in each NFL city.

Colts' head coach Chuck Pagano talked glowingly to Colts.com about Allen's work on and off the field.

“He does it on the football field and he does it in the locker room," Pagano said about Allen. "He’s not a real loud guy around here. He lets his actions speak for themselves. He’s one of those guys that whatever time he has away from football, you know he’s doing something for the community and spending time out in community and giving back."

"He’s one of those guys that has a great appreciation for the blessings that he has. He certainly understands that this is a privilege, and not a right, and he’s taken full advantage of the platform he has to give back, to serve our community, serve the team and serve the horseshoe. He’s a horseshoe guy through and through. He’s a great, great person.”

For the season, Allen has 26 catches (35 targets) for 374 yards and seven touchdowns.
