Allen, 23, grew up in Panama City, Florida, where he began shucking oysters at Hunt's Oyster Bar.

We are excited to tell his story of self-discovery and success in an industry that has embraced him as one of their own."Honor's Best: Journey of an Oyster Shucking Champion will be available for streaming on September 23, 2022 on Prime Video, Google Play, and Apple TV.
