Tuesday Morning Bills Trivia

Back by popular demand is everyone's favorite feature: Tuesday Morning Bills Trivia! With a shiny new name and everything! I'm fairly certain that most of you know how this works by now but for those of you that are new around here I will give a quick refresher. I put up four clues about four mystery players - cleverly called Mystery Players 1-4 - and you try to guess who they are. I post them in order of what I think is easiest to hardest, sometimes throwing in a curveball or two, and sometimes even extra credit.

There is no points system and there really is no "winner"; hopefully I make these difficult enough that some of you guys out there (freddy jj) don't get them all 7 minutes after I post this (Brian).  Let the games begin!

Mystery Player 1
My first name is Allen, but I go by my middle name.

 After retiring from football I coached my hometown high school football team, the Zeeland Chix in Michigan.

 I rushed for 2,947 yards at Yale, setting a school record that stood from 1973 to 2000, and was thrice named to the All-Ivy League First Team, the only Yale football athlete to be so honored.

 Before a knee injury ended my career, I finished with 25 interceptions and two touchdowns.

 I was draft in the fourth round of the 1973 NFL draft by the Detroit Lions to play safety.
