Josh Allen, Jacksonville Jaguars Star, Renames Himself to Honor Family Legacy and Athletic Heritage

Josh Allen, the formidable edge rusher from Jacksonville, recently made a significant announcement in a heartfelt video posted on X.

From now on, he will be known as Josh Hines-Allen, adopting a surname cherished by his sisters and other family members.

In his video, Allen emphasized the timeless significance of legacy, stating, “Legacy is forever, and I’m proud to carry that tradition on the back of my jersey.”

He expressed deep pride in continuing his family’s athletic legacy, honoring those who have worn the Hines-Allen name with immense pride and joy.

Reflecting on his family’s rich history in sports, Allen highlighted the influence of his athletic sisters and uncles, including Myisha Hines-Allen of the WNBA’s Washington Mystics and his uncle Gregory Hines, who was drafted by the Warriors in 1983 after an illustrious career at Hampton University.

His sisters LaTorri and Kyra also excelled in college basketball, with his uncle Keith making a mark at Montclair State.

With the upcoming 2024 season set to kick off against the Dolphins on September 8, Allen is poised to lead the Jaguars to new heights.

This transformation signifies more than just a name change for Josh Allen—it’s a testament to his deep-rooted family values and his relentless pursuit of excellence on and off the field.
