With all the responsibilities that come with being a father and all that it entails, to be called one by your child is one of the greatest honors that can be given. One cannot measure the influence of the everyday, hard-nosed, tirelessly working father who does all he can to provide a better life for his child. For the six children of the Allen family, when they looked for a role model they didn't have to look far - Harold "Red" Allen sat across the dinner table.
Red was also their Little League coach, history teacher, guidance counselor and many other job titles that can't fit on a standard one-page resume. Along with Gwendolyn, his wife of 55 years, they have formed quite a team and delivered a message of hard work, faith and love that has been embraced by their children.
Darius, the youngest of the family, in a gesture of honor and respect has passed on his father's message in this gem of a book.
Red: Life Lessons from a Father is a powerful offering for people of all walks of life. You can be old school, new school or no school. Red's life lessons will resonate with aspiring youth, caring adults, loving parents and courageous men who are ready to tackle the important job of being a Father. With his unique voice and ageless wisdom, Red's words will hit home and recall a time where being a father was more than just a title.

About the Author

As the youngest of six kids, Darius Allen couldn't help but to observe the movie called The Allen Family. All the philosophies, quotes, and books from his Texas-born father, Red, were passed down to him with the responsibility to cherish and recount them.

Darius's wonder years were filled with childhood dreams of representing Encanto Little League in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania; trips to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to root for the Trojans; visiting the Los Angeles Raiders' locker room to collect sweaty wristbands from his brother's teammates; and traveling to the cold weather of Canada to watch another brother play in the Grey Cup.

He graduated at the University of Southern California with a degree in Economics and a special interest in sitting in cinema classes. As the Founder and CEO of Varsity Club, Darius can now be found writing a novel, revising a screenplay, and shining a light on the trailblazers and trendsetters who have strived for excellence in the past, present and future.
