Noble's Jack Allen – Driven Athlete of the Month – Presented by Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Norman


The key to any successful athletic career is to continually work on improving your skills and abilities. That is something that Noble High School senior Jack Allen understands.

“Being successful in this sport takes a lot of extra work on the weekends,” Allen said. “It takes a lot of your time but the results make it worth it.”

Brock Vinson, Jack’s track coach is proud the hard work he puts in.

“Jack is the most improved athlete I have ever coached. His determination to better himself should be the drive of every athlete. I truly enjoyed every second coaching this young man!”

Jack first began running track when he was in the seventh grade, and this past season, he finished his senior campaign.

“This season went great,” he said. “I made it to state in the 800 Meter run. I also ran my best time of 2:03 in the 800 this season.”


With his trip to state this season, Jack qualified for state all four years of his high school career. When asked who his biggest influence is in his life, the answer was easy for Jack.

“My biggest role model would have to be my little bother Calvin,” he said. “He is a junior on the track team and he motivates me to better myself every day.”

Jack also shares his birthday with two of his siblings, Giles and Reagan.

“It’s a lot of fun being a triplet,” he said. “It’s fun to see peoples reactions when I tell them I am a triplet.”

In the fall, Jack will be attending East Central University in Ada. He will be getting a biology degree to become a physical therapist. The decision to choose ECU was easy for Jack.

“I love the coaching staff and the welcoming attitude the campus had,” he said. “It made me feel like I was home.”
