Former St. James High and Jamaica College schoolboy football standout, Calwayne Allen, is on his way to Chicago State University in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division One.

Allen revealed to the Western Mirror that he signed a full 2-year scholarship with the NCAA team and will be exhibiting his skills in the Division One come the start of the campaign later this year.

Calwayne, now 21, says he will be majoring in Business Administration and Management during his time at the university which he says is now under a new programme.

The former National Under-15 and 20 player says he is expected to arrive at the institution by August 3, ahead of the start of the season.

Calwayne, a very versatile player who can operate outstandingly in any of four positions, says the university contacted him at the end of September last year about joining up with them, but added he was not able to do so until he completed his 2-year spell at Jefferson where he had a stand-out showing.

Calwayne, who hails from Irwin in Montego Bay and is a former Wadadah player, can operate as a Central midfielder, left midfielder, and an attacking midfielder, he is also a capable and solid left back. “Versatility is really a good thing, it’s good to be that kind of a player, that’s a plus” he said.

A robust player in defense, but immensely attacking minded and full of flair with the ball at his feet, Calwayne told the Western Mirror he was always confident in his ability to keep making progress, “It’s not shocking to me because I put in the hard work and I have a plan, from day one when I made the decision and came to Jefferson, my next step was always Division One, so, it’s just another marker in the book as I seek to continue my progress”, he noted.

Calwayne will be joining ex- Cornwall College and fellow Montegonian and ex-Wadadah teammate Shaquan Reid at Chicago State.
