An interview by Jeff Mayfield

Former Railer leads Illinois College into playoff contention

Part 1

[OCT. 26, 2000]  I have heard it said that you couldn’t learn anything from being involved in a losing program. That if you play for a team that loses every game you are probably just wasting your time. John Allison couldn’t disagree more with that kind of thinking. Playing for a Railer program that showed little success for all the efforts expended did not seem to faze Allison all that much. In fact, he says it made him appreciate the game of football all the more. The perseverance, the patience and the discipline made him a better player. And this season he has helped lead the Illinois College Blueboys to a 6-1 record at posting time. That might not give you visions of a national championship, but it is on pace to become the greatest record in IC history.
