The Allen family has multiple sporting facilities on their estate

Josh and his three siblings grew up in a sports-themed household. Here’s what his mom Lavonne said with respect to her children’s upbringing.

“We kind of created our house out here in the country, kind of the kids’ paradise. We have a lot of different things for them to do and we have a basketball court. Also, we have … a sand beach volleyball (court). They have a batting cage. We have a little putting green for the kids. So it was kind of a destination where we wanted all these kids to be at our house,” Lavonne said in an interview earlier.

Josh Allen worked on a 2,000-acre farm before Bills job

In 1907 Josh’s great-grandfather migrated to America from Sweden. His son aka Buzz Allen started the 2,000-acre farm in Firebaugh, California in 1975. Following his demise, Josh’s dad Joel Allen took over the caretaking responsibilities of the farm on a daily basis. He was assisted by his wife and Josh’s mom, Lavonne.

The pair made sure that Allen would follow suit by making an example out of the budding sportsperson. He grew up helping around on his family farm under the tutelage of his father. Josh regards his dad very highly and even credits him for helping create a work ethic for himself.

Not only that but Allen also helped out at his mom’s restaurant during lunch hours. The promising athlete and his brother Jason used to wash dishes at the restaurant without any pay. They did so in order to reduce the workload on their mom. With such a beautiful and humble childhood, it’s no wonder Allen is turning out to be a fine role model.
