Allen Edward Dekdebrun (May 11, 1921 – March 29, 2005) was an American Football quarterback and politician from Buffalo, New York. As a professional football player, Dekdebrun was a career journeyman, playing in the All-America Football Conference, National Football League, Interprovincial Rugby Football Union, and Ontario Rugby Football Union, changing teams on an annual basis. He played college football at Cornell University, where he was also a member of the Quill and Dagger society, and high school football at Burgard High School in Buffalo.

After his football career ended, Dekdebrun opened a sporting goods store in Buffalo, and also served as the town supervisor of Amherst, New York. He sought the office of Erie County executive in 1975, but lost to incumbent Edward Regan.[1]
