    Allard stands between the opposing defender and protects the backside of future NFL quarterback Pat Devlin. Despite a defense that leads the nation in total scoring, Devlin is the premier attraction on a 12-2 team that has beaten Lehigh Valley, New Hampshire and Georgia Southern to place themselves one game away from hoisting the FCS National Championship. And it’s Allard’s job to make sure that the talented right-handed quarterback gets a chance to put the Blue Hens there.

    “Shea is a great developmental story,” Delaware offensive line Coach Damien Wroblewski explains. “He redshirted as a freshman due to a shoulder injury, but has worked hard and developed his game. He started out as a guard in his freshman year (non-redshirt) but he’s so athletic and possesses a tremendous amount of talent. He had progressed so much by his second year here, we decided to make him our starting left tackle.

    Wroblewski considers Allard one of the leaders on an offensive line that starts four juniors and one senior, all who have played together for the past three years. The line has collectively 18,000 snaps together and that has made things easier on the Wareham native. But Allard has the potential to be the one that continues playing at the next level.

    At 6-foot-5, 295 pounds, the left tackle has the body frame to play at the next level, which is something he says he wants.
