Former Cowboys star Larry Allen one of 13 first-year Hall of Fame candidates; a lock for induction

Former Cowboys star guard Larry Allen heads a list of 13 first-year eligible modern-era candidates nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013.

The headlines include offensive lineman Jonathan Ogden and defensive linemen Warren Sapp and Michael Strahan.

Allen, Strahan and Ogden are considered locks to enter the Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. Sapp is a good bet as well. Other prominent first-year eligible candidates are safety John Lynch, kicker Morten Anderson, quarterback Steve McNair and running back Priest Holmes.

Allen, a former second-round pick from Sonoma State, won a Super Bowl with the Cowboys in 1995. He played guard and tackle during a dominant 14-year career and was selected to the Pro Bowl 11 times. When he made the Pro Bowl in 1998 at tackle, he became one of three players to make the Pro Bowl at two different offensive line positions.

Allen was chosen as a member of the NFL’s All-Decade Team for the 1990s and the 2000s.
