Luther Allen seated. Behind him Mrs. Casey, Kerry Casey, college teammate of Luther and former Chaplain of the Kansas City Chiefs, and Joe Rushing at October 2015 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at Northeastern Oklahoma Junior College.

One of the most enjoyable friendships of my life was with Nathaniel Luther Allen. We knew each other for 54 years before he passed on Nov. 15.

Our relationship began as lineman in the Spring football practice of 1969 when Gene Windham became new head coach at Murfreesboro Central.
