Allison Gets Surprising Signing

(June 2, 2014) In the last 15 years, McGregor has had just four players go on to play football at the Division one level.

Two of those were walk-ons and one went to SMU. Troy Allison had hoped to add his name to that list.

Allison, eats, breathes and sleeps football.

"I love football more than anything," Allison said.

And dreams of playing in what many people consider the best conference in America.

"Play in the SEC, be a starting quarterback, that'd be amazing."

Unfortunately, McGregor's all-time passing leader was headed in a different direction.

"I was going to go play at Navarro and try to better myself and get a look by a bigger school," he said.

But those bigger schools were already paying attention.

"Two weeks ago, we found out they were looking for another quarterback," Allison said.

*They was the University of Arkansas. Two of the team's quarterbacks decided they were done, leaving the Razorbacks with a spot to fill.

"Said I had a spot on the team if I wanted it," Allison said.

Two weeks ago, Troy's bags were packed for junior college. Today, he's an SEC quarterback.

"It's a major swing. It definitely pumps you up and gets you going," Allison said.

"I pretty much jumped about three feet off the ground," McGregor head coach Tim Seward said.

When he arrives in Arkansas, Troy will be fourth on the Razorbacks depth chart. But after one pretty quick promotion, he's confident hard work can earn him another.

"Now it's time to work and go after it and start preparing," Allison said.

"I've definitely become an Arkansas fan now. We'll be supporting them in the SEC now," Seward said
