Dean is the first player out of Ruston High and second from Tech (the other being Terry Bradshaw) to be presented with the highest honor available in the pro game. He graduated from RHS in 1971 after an All-State and all-district career as a defensive lineman (while also doubling up on the offensive interior) before then reaping All-American and All-Southland honors at Tech.
