Watch: Former Penn State LB Marcus Allen Leads Mike Tomlin, Steelers in Victory Dance

Penn State DB Marcus Allen

Marcus Allen must be fun to be around.

After the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 23-20 overtime win over the Cincinnati Bengals at Paycor Stadium,  Allen led multiple teammates, such as star safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, and even his head coach, Mike Tomlin, in a celebratory dance.

Allen, who is front and center, still wearing his full uniform and helmet, posted the celebration to his Instagram story.

Allen had initially been cut by the Steelers, but stayed on the practice squad  and made the team’s 53-man Week 1 roster after Damonte Kazee went on injured reserve.

Allen played at Penn State from 2014-17, finishing his career fifth all-time in tackles and becoming a first-team All-Big Ten and third-team All-American his senior year.

He also made one of the most famous plays in Penn State history. Against Ohio State in 2016, Allen blocked a kick that Grant Haley returned for a touchdown, which ended up being the winning score in a 24-21 upset over the then-No. 2 Buckeyes.
