It was once said of longtime Atlanta offensive tackle Mike Kenn that trying to pass rush against him was like trying to pass rush agaisnt the text book. Defenders are finding an eerily similar offensive tackle in Marietta, GA's Christopher Dean who has only given up 2 sacks in the past 2 years.
"He's given up two sacks in two years playing against the likes of Chris Bradwell (FSU) and Chris Hickman (Georgia)," said Dean's father Bill Dean.
Dean will move to the right tackle this year, and that has to be re-assuring to 1st year QB Zach Richardson who is a lefty. Dean has made All-Region as a junior and he projects as an interior lineman on the next level with his height and strength.
Dean may be even better in the classroom than he is on the football field. With a 4.1 GPA and a gaudy 1280 on the SAT, Dean has already registered and qualified with the NCAA Clearing house.
"I plan to major in Computer Science," said Dean. Dean has come in under the radar a bit, but with his size, strength, on-field work, and off field credentials, he is going to be an asset to one lucky school. According to his father, Duke, Wake Forest, Air Force, and Clemson have shown the most interest thus far.
