This story appears in ESPN The Magazines August 22 College Football Preview Issue. Subscribe today!On a late-June morning, Oregon Ducks junior wide receiver Devon Allen practices his starts in the 110-meter hurdles at Hayward Field. In two weeks, on July 9, he will take his mark on the same starting line when Oregon hosts the U.S. Olympic track and field trials. On that day, to become one of the few active college football players ever to make an Olympic team, hell have to beat some serious competition in Aries Merritt and Jason Richardson, the 2012 gold and silver medalists. You cant be starstruck when you run against them, Allen says. Hopefully theyre worried about me too. If he makes the team, Allen will face a tough decision: Play with the Ducks or go pro in track post-Rio. But Allen isnt one to get ahead of himself, and The Mag is there as he approaches his first hurdle-: earning a ticket to Brazil.Double teamHis football teammates say hes a track star who plays football, but Allen insists hes a two-sport athlete who isnt ready to sacrifice one for the other. After winning his first U.S. outdoor title in the 110-meter hurdles in 2014, Allen led Ducks receivers with seven TD catches as a redshirt freshman before tearing his ACL at the 2015 Rose Bowl. It took me 12 months to feel 100 percent and confident again, Allen says, crediting his football training with helping his track. We train for explosiveness and strength, and that plays into hurdling.With the trials only two weeks away, Allen refuses to allow fear of injury to keep him off the gridiron. You can get hurt doing anything. These guys come to my track meets, and I like to be around the team. Besides, he adds, after the injury, I got faster.Running homeOver the past two weeks, Haywards green-and-yellow decor has given way to red, white and blue. I practice here every day, Allen says. Its a definite advantage. At the July 9 final, the crowd offers Allen deafening support during his strong start; with three hurdles to go, he is even with the other leaders. Thats when I knew, he says. My last hurdles are really strong.As he crosses the line in a personal-best 13.03, Allen realizes he has booked his trip to Rio de Janeiro, where he will be favored to medal on Aug. 15. He bolts toward the crowd and leaps into the stands, where Ducks right guard Cameron Hunt hugs him and points him toward his family, uniformed in Team Allen T-shirts. Afterward, Allen says it all feels surreal. I knew I could run that time. I knew it was in there. [But] it still hasnt set in.

Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to (minor-league) Hamilton for David Desharnais please.Manuel Pellegrini insisted the battle for the top four is not finished after Manchester City were held to a 2-2 draw by Arsenal on Sunday. Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne twice put City ahead at the Etihad but they were pegged back by goals from Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez.Citys destiny is now out of their hands, with Manchester United assured of a top-four finish if they win their final two games against West Ham and Bournemouth, but Pellegrini, who was overseeing his last home game in charge, was defiant in defeat. Its not finished, Pellegrini told Sky Sports. When things are not in your own hands you need to depend on other teams, but in football you never know, we will have our heads up and not give up until the last day. Pelllegrini said his goodbyes to the Manchester City fans We need to wait for the Manchester United result, then we will think about our last game which we need to win.dddddddddddd When you dont depend on yourself its more difficult.City created the majority of the chances against Arsenal and went close to a late winner when Wilfried Bony volleyed against the bar.It was not the way we wanted to finish the season at home, said Pellegrini. We deserved to win this game, we played very well for 90 minutes, but in football you must score the goals. Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for City We were a bit unlucky with some of the chances but we could not win. We were playing against a very good team, but in the first 45 minutes only one team was in it. We just couldnt keep our advantage.Pellegrinis three-year spell at City will come to an end next Sunday with a trip to Swansea.I wanted a different goodbye of winning the game, playing attacking and attractive football that we have for most of the three years I have been here, Pellegrini added. The team gave a good answer in the game but if you dont win its not the same to say goodbye. The three years were wonderful and unforgettable and I hope this club continues improving in the future.
