Dean Named to Freshman All-SEC Team

Gators cornerback earns conference honors for his performances after a rapid rise to the starting lineup.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Trey Dean was named to the Coaches Freshman All-SEC team, as the league announced Thursday. 
 
Dean's freshman campaign was accelerated after sophomore Marco Wilson left the game with a season-ending knee injury against Kentucky.  In the spring, Dean was listed as the fifth-string cornerback.  Following that injury, he was named the starter. 
 
He has played in all 12 games and started eight, including the last five. He is second on the team behind Henderson with six pass breakups and has added 22 tackles.
 
Against Missouri, Dean got beat for a 41-yard touchdown pass, the first touchdown he had ever allowed in coverage throughout his football career.  The Hampton, Ga. responded with good games against South Carolina, Idaho and Florida State and intercepted his first career pass against the Seminoles, returning it for 44 yards.   
 
Dean continued Florida's streak of freshman all-conference honors, dating back to 2006.  Since 2006, the Gators have had 38 players named to the All-SEC team as freshmen, including Gators cornerback tandem, Henderson and Wilson, who spent extra time with Dean to speed up his development and help prove he belonged on their level.
