UH’s Allen named to All-Mountain West Conference’s first team

University of Hawaii offensive lineman Dejon Allen has been named to the All-Mountain West Conference’s first team for football.

Allen, who is 6 feet 3 and 295 pounds, completed his UH eligibility following the past Saturday’s regular-season finale against Brigham Young at Aloha Stadium. He recently accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 20 in Florida and is set to graduate on Dec. 16 as a double-major in sociology and kinesiology.

Running back Diocemy Saint Juste, who set the Rainbow Warriors’ single-season rushing record with 1,510 yards in 2017, and middle linebacker Jahlani Tavai, who amassed 124 tackles, were named to the second team.

Defensive end Meffy Koloamatangi and defensive tackle Viane Moala received honorable mention.

A surprising omission was safety Trayvon Henderson, who is considered one of the Warriors’ top prospects for the 2019 National Football League Draft. Henderson recently accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl, which is partially administered by the NFL.
