Mac was a great athlete who played in the CESA Soccer League since he was four years old. He was currently a member of the CESA Premier 93 team. He also played golf and tennis at Holly Tree Country Club. He loved to bowl, swim, play games and spend time with friends.

(Wanted to let yall know Mac passed away today at 1:20 today. Please just continue praying for The Allens.. Mitch and Jordan are his brother and just keep them in your prayers!
This has been a difficult time for the student body of JL Mann. We have suffered a great loss of Jordan and Mitch Allen's brother Mac today.
I am greatful to all that went to the candlelit vigil last night at Oakview and thank you for wearing your '19' shirts today. They have been very inspiring to our local community here in Greenville. I,also, would like to thank everyone for praying for the Allen family as they go through this very difficult time.
This is not a tragedy that ONLY affects Oakview. It effects everyone who knows and is involved with the family. It is a universal tragedy of how your most precious gifts can always be taken from in you in an instant. Things and life are not taken for granted. Life is something we cherish and should believe in each and everyday of our lives. We should live it to the fullest. We never know when the Lord will take us up. It could be today or many years from now. We will never know completely.
All we know is that we are living now, and should never take it for granted at any moment in time.
To Mac: Rest In Peace. From: JL Mann and the local community.
Boogie For Charity was back for a second time and this year a new alias was born!
DANCE MANN WAS BACK!!!!!!!! Yes, that's me, Dance Mann!!! Check out the photos and videos of performances on my Facebook and Myspace! The Promiscuous Brenn video has had over 100 views in less than a week after its release!!!! WAY TO GO EVERYONE!!! Throughout the week I raised a total of $3,000!!!! SOOOO, in the past two years Boogie For Charity has raised over $7,000!!!!!!!! I am impressed by all of your enthusiasm these past two years!
I did dance at the pep rally again! This year it was with Spanish teacher Miss Hiers at Mann! What fun it was doing it in 90 degree weather on the football field to Sexyback by Justin Timberlake! Talk about wild!
Two days during Spirit Week I did some performances in the Cafeteria to much enthusiasm and shouting! Well, the good kind. As you can all tell I am very excited as I am writing this because I am!
I did do the Date Auction this year and yes I did, to some disappointment and shock, take my shirt off. AHHHHH! I lost my mind, I think. I was kinda pissed too because they did the wrong song, but no biggie I still raised alot!
Although we lost the Greenville game and the money, we still raised $95,000 while Greenville raised $97,000. That, in short, means that if I didn't dance then we would have lost by $5,000 instead of $2,000. WOW!!!!!!
I recenly went on a date with Amanda to the lake. It as SOOOO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!! We went out to eat and she had some friends come over. they sang and danced for me too! They were very talented!
Yes, my schedule was fixed so that I can take all the classes that I wanted to take. Although I switched from Lawson's 7th period English 3 Honors to Doc Loch's, at least I'll have more FUN now! Plus, too, Id rather have a teacher who mispronounces my name than one who calls me the wrong one, even when I tell her the right one repeatedly. (OOOHHH!!!) jk.
On Friday I finally got the Patriot Idol video that is 7 months old! It was great! Danae and I were awesome at the show!!!!!!
I, also, saw my Who's Who entry on Friday, courtesy of another student in it, and was so crazy about it. It was neat seeing my name in a book like that. I should get a copy of it on Tuesday.
