You have done so well Dean and we look forward to seeing your progress. Instead of awarding the sportsman of the year award you will be collecting it!!! Good Luck.
Attended college with Dean. What a nice guy he is! Congratulations on your sporting achievement, Dean. You deserve every success, and did yourself and everyone proud in tonight's race. Wishing you a very accomplishing future. This is just the beginning for you, Mate.
