Veteran Terry Allen was voted as the 1999 Kimberly-Clark /Shaw's Supermarket Patriots 12th Player Award winner, the team announced Wednesday.
Allen, in his first season with New England, leads the team in rushing with 970 yards on 241 attempts. Now in his 10th year, the back has scored nine touchdowns this season and has 68 for his career.
"This is a great honor and one that I am truly proud to receive," Allen said. "It is very gratifying to have the fans believe that I have made an important contribution to the team. I thank the fans for voting for me."
