Richard Dean dominated the Indiana Collegiate Conference for two
years as an offensive center and defensive linebacker. Captain of
the team both years, he was the chosen the ICC's MV Lineman his
senior year, which he topped off-to the delight of a partisan Monon
Bell crowd-by getting a rare ball-carrying assignment against as
outclassed Wabash team. Dean was chosen Little All-American by AP,
twice was voted all-Methodist by Fred Russell of the Nashville (TN)
Banner, and twice was all-conference. The St. Louis Cardinals
drafted Dean as a free agent. He spent a year in St. Louis then
went on with his career plans as an advertising art director. After
assignments with three Connecticut firms, he joined Fox Press Inc.
in Hartford, CT, where his is now vice president of the
corporation. But football isn't neglected; he has coached two
Midget Football teams to titles.
