The Dean College Football team ended their 2012 season with an impressive 7-3 record. Even more impressive are the accolades and achievements in the month following the season. As we reported earlier, two players were named National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) All-Americans, and four have signed with impressive Division 1 programs in the National College Athletic Association.
Six-foot-two-inch receiver Shavarez Smith, who caught 43 balls for 685 yards and 6 touchdowns, was recruited to and signed by South Alabama (read about it on ESPN).
Florida Atlantic University (FAU) was very interested in the talents of two Dean players, one on each side of the ball. The aforementioned Rodney “Lucky” Whitehead was recruited and signed, and shortly after, defensive lineman Lance Burlingame signed with FAU (read about it in the Sun Sentinel).
Finally, the impressive play of four Dean players was recognized by well respected NCAA Division 1 football programs around the country. Starting Quarterback Trevor Vasey was heavily recruited by Elon University in North Carolina, ultimately where Vasey signed (read about it in the Providence Journal). Vasey expects to compete for the starting quarterback job immediately.
Congratulations to all on their achievements.
