Throughout the pre-Pro Football Hall of Fame induction activities and celebrations, Dean has remained humble.

RUSTON 14-U BOYS HEAD TO DIXIE WORLD SERIES

“We’re playing some pretty good baseball right now,” Letendre said. “That run through the state tournament showed the team’s focus and determination. They’re a loose group, but on the field they just pull together and do whatever it takes to get the job done.”
The main part of the job started for this Dixie All-Star team at the state regional tournament, where Ruston defeated Union 25-1, West Monroe 14-4 and then Union again, 17-4.
