ABOUT JAVORIUS “BUCK” ALLEN

Who founded Buck Mission Day? Current New Orleans Saints Running Back, Javorius “Buck” Allen, a kid from Miccosukee, FL, who grew up to live his dream to play in the NFL.

Buck is proud to come from the rural community of Miccosukee. He reflects on the Carrie Wilson Boys & Girls Club as an organization that offered a safe environment to explore extracurricular activities, and more importantly, a club that symbolized hope. Like many others from his neighborhood, he did not have access to many resources. The Boys and Girls Club was instrumental in helping him rise above his circumstances, and there, Buck found his love for football after joining the Miccosukee Steelers, a recreational football team. In 2008, he was the youngest student to start on the varsity team at Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, where he received the nickname “Young Buck.” In 2011, Buck committed to the University of Southern California, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology. Making him the first person in his family to go to college. Buck was drafted in 2015 to the Baltimore Ravens, a dream come true.

His hardships were relentless, but his will to overcome was indestructible. Buck Mission Day is an event that expresses Buck’s notion that one opportunity can change the trajectory of someone’s life.
