One of the top NFL prospects returned home, one week away from the biggest night of his life.

Firebaugh native Josh Allen came back to the Central Valley on Thursday to give thanks and speak both schools he attended, Firebaugh High and Reedley College.

The 6'5", 237-pound quarterback who starred in college at Wyoming is widely considered to be one of the top quarterbacks in this year's NFL Draft.

Allen began the day at Reedley College where he spoke in front of more than 100 close family and friends and spoke to the current student-athletes.

Hours later, he returned to his Firebaugh High School to a gym packed with students that held a rally for the former Firebaugh High star.

"It means a lot, the support that I have is fantastic and if I can come home and talk to some kids, inspire some kids that makes it all worth it," Allen said when talking about why it was so important to come back to the Central Valley.

Allen is projected to go in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday, April 26th in Dallas, Texas.
