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.
