HE GOT GAME
RAY ALLEN (Jesus Shuttlesworth) makes his feature film
and acting debut in Touchstone Pictures' "He Got Game,"
yet, at 22 years of age, Allen has already stacked up a stellar
career record in the sport of basketball.
Since being selected as the #5 NBA draft pick in 1996, Allen has
gone on to fulfill his extraordinary promise on the basketball
court as a guard for the Milwaukee Bucks. During his rookie year,
he started all but one of their games, and finished with averages
of 13.2 points per game and 4.0 rebounds per game, also leading
the team in treys made and free-throw shooting. Cited as the most
promising newcomer in recent years, Allen played in the NBA Rookie
All-Star Game, and the NBA Team Up this past February.
Born at the Castle Air Force Base in Merced, California, Allen
attended Hillcrest High School in South Carolina and became a
basketball star at the University of Connecticut. He was named
1996 Big East Player of the Year in a unanimous All-Big East First
Team selection, and also received the 1995-96 Consensus All-America
First Team selection by the Associated Press, United Press International,
The Sporting News, and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.
With a devoted interest in helping others, Allen is also the founder
of the Ray of Hope Foundation, established to enhance and uplift
the lives of children and young adults through sports-related
and community-based programs.
