PHOTOS: "A childhood dream come true" - Josh Allen is officially on the cover of Madden 24

"It's a bit of a surreal feeling for sure," Allen told USA TODAY Sports. "You know, getting to the league is the only thing that's ever really crossed my mind. But going back to a kid, obviously, Madden was what I played growing up is actually how I learned the game of football. So to be able to grace the cover of Madden, I'm just happy to be able to be the first Bill to do it.

Josh Allen is officially on the cover of Madden 24. 

"I know my teammates will be pumped up about it. Madden, it's so iconic. It really is football culture and, you know, I just love the opportunity to do this and I'm blown away. You know, words can't do it justice. I think Bills Mafia is going to be very excited about this."

Last season, Allen completed 63% percent of his passes for 4,283 yards with 35 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, as he finished third in the MVP balloting behind Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Back in high school in Firebaugh, California, or even in college at the University of Wyoming -- nah, it wasn't something plausible. Let alone becoming the first Bills player to be selected as the main cover star.

"It's such a small group of people who have ever touched the face of Madden, so now to be on that list, it's very surreal. It's very humbling," Allen told ESPN. "To think about where I was not too long ago and coming out of high school with zero offers, going to junior college and have one offer, University of Wyoming of all places, and then fast-forward to now.

"I don't know if I would have believed you at that point, if you were to tell me in high school. It's so surreal. Madden has such a special place in my heart."
