Catching up with Blake Dean

Published: Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at 02:44 PM.

"I enjoy it and keeps me in the game, so it's definitely a good option right now," Dean said. "I played it my whole life and it's nice to just see a different side of it. So it's new to me and, as far as the game, it gives me something else to try and accomplish."


Blake said he couldn’t see Dakota play football last fall, so when the Tigers had a day off, it was important to make the trip from Baton Rouge to see the Bulldogs face the Eagles.

Joining Blake was LSU assistant coach Javi Sanchez, who was also there to watch Dakota, who has signed to play baseball at LSU next year.

"I didn't get to see him for his senior football games or anything like that so I was talking to coach Sanchez and he said, 'Let's go make a trip and get to go watch him and see him play a little bit.'

"He's not just here looking at my brother. He's watching both the infield and outfield, and he's watching the hitting. You never can tell when you will find another guy."
