Profits From Allar’s Children’s Book Sales to go to Medina Youth Program

Penn State quarterback Drew Allar has only been a college football player for five games and he already has a children’s book about him.

The children’s book, titled “The Man in Back,” tells the story of how Allar got to where he is today, and also discusses who Allar is away from the field. It’s 34 pages, and Allar partnered with author Andy Vodopia to write it. The book is another example of how Name, Image and Likeness is changing college football.

Word of the book got out last Wednesday. Five days later, Allar announced that proceeds from the book will go to his alma mater’s youth football program.

Allar became a five-star recruit when playing at Medina High School in Ohio. Before high school, he was part of Medina Youth Gridiron Football, and he’ll be paying back that organization.

“I am excited to give back to the community that has always supported my teammates and me,” Allar wrote to Twitter Monday.

He then credited the youth program for teaching him “football fundamentals, the value of being a good teammate and the life skills I use today.”

Allar has appeared in four of Penn State’s five games thus far, with the exception being Penn State’s 17-7 win over Northwestern Oct. 1.

Sean Clifford is Penn State’s firm QB1, so its not clear whether Allar will appear again this season.

Regardless, Allar is expected to be Penn State’s starter in 2023, and if he’s as good as advertised, he’s likely to go to the NFL after the 2024 season.
