On the Alabama teams of the late 1960s, Mike Dean was a multi-talented performer who spent most of his time roaming the Crimson Tide’s secondary. In his junior year of 1968, Dean, a native of Decatur, Ga., led the Crimson Tide in interceptions (6) and also in scoring (40 points), by virtue of his placekicking duties. One of the fastest players on the team, he also returned punts, averaging 11.6 yards in 1969.
