Season Outlook A new era of Arkansas State baseball begins Feb. 20 when ASU takes the field in Arlington, Texas against Texas State at the UT-Arlington/Hilton Invitational. The game marks the debut of new head coach Tommy Raffo and will be the first baseball game played for Arkansas State as the Red Wolves. Raffo comes to Arkansas State after 15 outstanding years as an assistant at Mississippi State, becoming the fifth head coach in the history of the ASU baseball program. During his time at Mississippi State, he served as the hitting and outfield coach for a Bulldog program that made three trips to the College World Series and under his direction, the Bulldogs posted a team batting average of .300 or better in eight of the past 11 seasons.

During his tenure at Mississippi State, Raffo also served as the recruiting coordinator for the Bulldog baseball program, landing 10 straight recruiting classes ranked in the top 33 nationally by Collegiate Baseball. He coached seven All-America players and four Academic All-Americans. He was named as the 2007 Southeastern Conference Fellowship of Christian Athletes Coach of the Year, and during his time at MSU, 49 Bulldogs were chosen in the Major League Baseball Draft. In addition to having a new head coach, the ASU athletic programs have a new mascot after 77 years of competition as the Indians. The Red Wolves were adopted as the new mascot in the spring of 2008 and the change has proved to be an overwhelming success. Fans have embraced the new mascot, logo and spirit Sophomore pitcher Andy Ferguson and senior catcher Lawson Hipps will provide depth in their positions in 2009.

character, “Howl” and the new moniker has quickly become a source of pride for the University and surrounding community. While the head coaching position and mascot have changed, 10 seniors and 18 lettermen, including eight who have seen starting action, return to bring a wealth of experience to the field. “We’ve got 10 seniors back and a lot of position players who have seen action,” said Raffo. “I think that can be a huge help to the squad this year because they have seen action in the Sun Belt Conference. Any time you have guys who have played a full season in any conference, it can be a help because they know the expectations and what it takes to win.” “The upperclassmen have a ‘want-to’ to do well and succeed here,” added Raffo. “They are very excited about the opportunity to compete for the Sun Belt Championship. We have a good mixture of young players who are very talented and provide energy, so with that combination, I think it can be a very exciting season for Red Wolves baseball.” Arkansas State will lean heavily on the experience of its pitching corps, as twelve arms return AStateRedWolves.com

for the Red Wolves after seeing action in 2008. Heading up the talent on the mound is senior Chase Ware, a right-hander who was named preseason All-Sun Belt Conference by the league’s coaches. “Chase is our Friday night starter and we are fortunate to have him for his senior year,” said Raffo. “We are looking for great things from him and he has the ability to go out each and every Friday night and get the series off on the right track.” Also expected to figure into the weekend rotation are senior southpaw Jett Jones and junior right-hander Derek Riley. “Jett is a left-handed pitcher who has come on in the last couple of years here at Arkansas State,” said Raffo. “We are expecting him to be a factor in the rotation and he has developed his repoire of pitches quite nicely. We look forward to seeing him every weekend and Derek is a highly-recruited righthander who was drafted last year. We expect him to see action on the weekends and he continues to get better each and every day.” The battle for midweek starting positions on the mound is

wide open. “With the constant evaluation to see how the matchups are, the determination of the weekday starters is still up for grabs,” said Raffo. “We have some great candidates. As far as the late-inning relievers, we are still looking for somebody to emerge and say that he’s the guy. Right now we can see senior Nick Lambert, sophomore Andy Ferguson, junior Ryan Blackburn and senior Chris Bullington, so it’s by committee right now. But it’s a very strong committee, and that is one of the neat things about our pen in that it is an added dimension for us.” “Nick is a young man who has a quick arm and will be a factor for us middle to late in games,” Raffo continued. “We feel like he has the capability and stuff to be able to handle any situation. Andy is coming off of knee surgery and arm surgery and has really come on. He has shown a lot

of confidence in his abilities on the mound, and he will be used this spring. Ryan is a downunder guy – a different arm-slot pitcher. He relies on movement of his pitchers to get hitters out. He can be very good matchupwise, right-on-right. Chris is a senior and co-captain of the team. We are looking for excellent leadership from him. His main roles will be out of the bullpen as a middle or late reliever. He has the ability to spin the ball very well and keeps hitters off-balance.” Also available to provide depth on the mound are senior Jordan Torr, junior Corey Lambert and freshmen Cody Powell, Jeff Miller, Caleb McClanahan, Justin O’Brien, Jacob Lee and Codie Rollins. “A lot of times you see five games in seven days, and that sometimes presents a dilemma with the pitching and can wear Sophomore Todd Baumgarter was selected as a team captain for the 2009 season.

Everyone in the country has to do it, so you see a lot of Tuesday and Wednesday upsets because many teams do not have the front-line pitching going into the weekday games.” Behind the plate, senior Lawson Hipps, who started 51 games a year ago, and junior Kyle DeGrace will see the majority of the action, with senior Grey Avant and freshman Kevin Burgi available as well. “Lawson is veteran catcher who caught for ASU last year,” said Raffo. “He is a left-handed hitter who will provide some stability at the catching position and has adjusted very well from the JUCO ranks. Kyle is a JUCO transfer who can play many different positions and roles. He is a very valuable can play outfield, infield and catch. He provides excellent leadership behind the plate and is a great competitor.” The Red Wolves have experience at all four infield positions, particularly at the corners, where senior Guy Brown started all 55 games a year ago at third base, and at first with senior Brandon Eller, who also started all 55 games in 2008. DeGrace and sophomore Drew Benes will also see time at third, with Benes and AStateRedWolves.com

Raffo comes to Jonesboro with 14 years as an assistant coach at Mississippi State University under his belt. He served as the hitting and outfield coach for a Bulldog program that made three trips to the College World Series. "We are extremely pleased to hire a coach with the background and experience of competing at the highest level that Tommy Raffo brings," said ASU Director of Athletics, Dr. Dean Lee. "We had an extremely strong pool of candidates for this position, and feel that Coach Raffo was unquestionably the best fit to take over the Arkansas State baseball program. Tommy is highly respected in the coaching field for his integrity and for his superior knowledge of the game." During his 14 seasons at Mississippi State, Raffo served as the recruiting coordinator for the Bulldog baseball program, landing 10 straight recruiting classes ranked in the top 33 nationally by Collegiate Baseball. He coached seven All-America players and four Academic AllAmericans. He was named as the 2007 Southeastern Conference Fellowship of Christian Athletes Coach of the Year, and during his time at MSU, 49 Bulldogs were chosen in the Major League Baseball Draft. Raffo's outstanding recruiting at MSU paid dividends for the program as he helped the Bulldogs reach the SEC Tournament 12 times, with two championships to their credit. Mississippi State also made 11 appearances in the NCAA Tournament during Raffo's time with the program, winning five regional titles. The Bulldogs made three appearances in the NCAA Super Regionals and advanced to the College World Series in 1997, 1998 and 2007. Raffo coached one Johnny Bench Award winner, given annually to the top college catcher in the country, and helped seven hitters finish the season in the SEC's top five batting averages. As a player, Raffo was co-captain of the 1990 Mississippi State team that advanced to the College World Series. He was a two-time Academic All-American and a three-time Academic All-SEC selection. He was named first-team All-SEC in 1989 and 1990, and in 1990 earned second-team All-America honors from both the American Baseball Coaches Association and Baseball America. "My family and I are extremely excited about this opportunity," said Raffo. "Since my first visit, I was impressed by the campus, by the city of Jonesboro, but most importantly, by the people. There is an energy at Arkansas State that I did not expect. What a special time for ASU baseball. Every person I meet is enthusiastic about the leadership on campus and the direction our baseball program is headed. I can't wait to lead and be a part of it." After earning his Bachelor's of Business Administration Degree from Mississippi State in 1990, Raffo was chosen by the Miami Miracle with the first pick of the eighth round in the 1990 MLB Draft.

Tomlinson Stadium & Kell Field Named for ASU pioneer J.A. ‘Ike’ Tomlinson, and Major League Baseball Hall of Famer George Kell, Tomlinson Stadium & Kell Field was opened in 1993. The complex includes Tomlinson Stadium & Kell Field as well as the baseball offices and indoor workout facilities for Arkansas State baseball. “Coach Ike” as Tomlinson was known to his former players and ASU fans, was primarily responsible for the rebirth of ASU Athletics following the end of World War II. He coached numerous programs, including baseball, and served as the school’s athletic director. He was a part of ASU Athletics for almost six decades, and the school honored him in 1994 by placing his name on the new baseball facility. Kell, a native of Swifton (Ark.), was elected to the MLB Hall of Fame in 1983, and has been an active supporter of Arkansas State baseball for many years. Kell edged out Ted Williams for the 1949 MLB batting title, going 2-for-3 on the final day of the season, while Williams was hitless in two at-bats. Kell’s final mark on the season was .3429, while Williams posted a .3427 average. He was a 10-time American League All-Star who hit over .300 in eight consecutive seasons. Kell twice led the American League in hits and in doubles, and in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, he was regarded as the best third baseman in the AmeriCoach J.A. can League. “Ike” Tomlinson Head Coach Keith Kessinger was impressed with ASU’s facility upon being hired and has also made several improvements, including work in the dugout and indoor facility as well as increasing the school’s colors of Scarlet and Black around the complex. Also, a batter’s eye was added as well Coach Ike turning on the lights at the as retractable indoor and all-weather batting cages. Prior to the 2007 season, the first night game at Barton’s Baseball Deck picTomlinson Stadium & Kell Field nic area was added, and new for the 2008 season are over 200 field-level seats. Along with the new seating, which includes 26 handicap-accessible seating areas, are new party boxes which are available for groups and corporate events, new backstop netting, and new, precision-leveled infield turf. The Legacy Walk was also created prior to the 2008 season to recognize friends of ASU Baseball for their contributions to the program.

The Sun Belt Conference enters its 34th season in 2008-2009 with a proud history of athletic and academic success. The conference sponsors 10 women’s sports - basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball; and nine men’s sports – baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, swimming and diving, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. Each of the 19 sports has seen numerous team and individual accomplishments, and 12 Sun Belt Conference schools are currently graduating its student athletes at a rate higher than their school’s student body. All Sun Belt schools are committed to excellence in the 21st century, and facility upgrades and expansion are occurring on virtually every campus. Because of its status as a member of the Division 1-A football coalition, the Sun Belt Conference has a permanent seat on the NCAA’s 16-member Board of Directors. As a result, the conference has a crucial voice on some of the most pressing issues in college athletics and will always have a role in the implementation of any future NCAA legislation and guidelines. The conference continues to utilize television to grow and promote the league. Adding volleyball, baseball and softball to the conference’s television package has resulted in more national and regional television exposure for the league than at any time in its history. The conference’s regional television package enables live telecasts of Sun Belt events to reach over 20 million households. Additionally, ESPN televised the conference’s men’s basketball championship game for

the 27th straight season in 2007, marking its longest affiliation with any conference in the country. Prominent Sun Belt alumni include United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (Denver), NFL Hall of Fame football player “Mean” Joe Greene (North Texas), Arizona Diamondbacks All-Star baseball player Luis Gonzalez (South Alabama), former member of the United States Senate and House of Representatives John Breaux (Louisiana-Lafayette), country music superstar Tim McGraw (Louisiana-Monroe), and actor Andy Garcia (Florida International). The Sun Belt Conference is led by Commissioner Wright Waters, who is in his ninth full year as commissioner. He was named the conference’s fourth commissioner in February of 1999 following the tenures of Vic Bubas (19761990), Jim Lessig (1990-1991), and Craig Thompson (1991-1998). The league’s annual all sports champion is awarded the Vic Bubas Cup, named after the conference’s first commissioner. The conference office has been headquartered in downtown New Orleans since 2000 after moving from suburban Metairie, La., where it had been based since 1991. Prior to moving to the “Big Easy,” the league was based in Tampa, Fla., from 1977-1991. The original conference office was located in Charlotte, N.C., from 1976-77.

Welcome to Arkansas State University

Since its opening in January 2001, the Fowler Center has quickly become the region’s home for performance and visual arts presentations of the highest caliber, as well as for special civic and community events. Its location is just south of the Convocation Center.

Arkansas State University was established April 1, 1909, as a “public school of agriculture” by Act 100 of the Arkansas General Assembly. It was located at Jonesboro because citizens of the city bid $40,000 to the state and pledged 200 acres of land as a site. After 95 years of growth, ASU-Jonesboro now has an annual budget of some $122.6 million, owns more than 3,000 acres of land in five different counties, has a physical plant valued at almost $200 million, and has an alumni roll exceeding 53,000. ASU’s rapid development over the years has been typical of other major universities in an emerging modern South. From an agricultural high school in 1909, to a junior college in 1918, to a four-year degree-granting institution in 1930, to a university in 1967, ASU has become regionally respected and nationally recognized for its qualities of teaching, research and service. The ASU system includes campuses at Beebe (White County), Mountain Home (Baxter County),

and Newport (Jackson County) where associate degree programs are offered, and at Marked Tree, Searcy and Heber Springs. A new campus is being built for ASU-Heber Springs. An instructional site is located at Paragould. The Jonesboro campus, which occupies 942 acres amid the gentle slopes of Crowley’s Ridge in east Jonesboro, is located between the vast and fertile Mississippi River Valley and the cultural and scenic richness of the Ozark Mountains. More than 10,000 students annually work toward degrees in 141 areas of specialization at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Fifteen undergraduate degrees are offered through the Colleges of Agriculture, Business, Communications, Education, Engineering, Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Nursing and Health Professions, Sciences and Mathematics, and the University College. The Honors College was instituted July 1, 2004, evolving from the Honors Program.

The Arkansas Biosciences Institute opened in 2004. The $20 million facility is dedicated to multi-disciplinary research to fulfill purposes outlined in the Arkansas Tobacco Settlement.

Welcome to Arkansas State University Fifteen master’s and two specialist degrees are offered, as well as doctoral degrees in educational leadership, environmental sciences, and heritage studies. Pre-professional programs are offered in nine areas. The bachelor’s degree programs with the most graduates are early childhood education, business administration, management information systems, accounting, nursing, agricultural business, and finance. The top graduate programs, based on number of degrees awarded, are business administration, education administration-elementary principalship, reading education, educational administration-secondary principalship, communication disorders, nursing and physical therapy. New academic programs are introduced as needed to respond to the rapid changes in our society. For instance, the athletic training program is the only such accredited program in the state. Academic strength has been enhanced with the Distance Learning Program which extends ASU’s educational influence across the nation. Also, ASU offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and upper level courses at ASU-Beebe, ASUMountain Home, and ASU degree centers in three Arkansas cities—Blytheville, Forrest City, and West Memphis—where partnership agreements have been established in cooperation with the community colleges in those cities.

CAMPUS LANDMARKS (Above) The eight-story bell tower of the Dean B. Ellis Library, dedicated in 1995, is the focal point of the Arkansas State University campus.

(Right) ASU’s Pavilion is the site of many student activities. Construction on a new Alumni Center is underway across the pond from the Pavilion. The two sites will form with ASU Stadium and the Convocation Center to create an exciting atmosphere on game days and nights.

Welcome to Arkansas State University ASU offers challenging, fully-accredited programs and a prestigious 600-member faculty with a vast number holding doctorates from other major institutions. Some faculty are nationally known for teaching, research and service in the sciences, humanities and professional fields. Arkansas State University’s commitment to excellence in higher education is demonstrated by its accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, as well as 18 specialized accrediting organizations. ASU’s reputation toward excellence has been established in part by student performance in national competition, such as the nationally-ranked debate team, and by the success of its graduates. The underlying principle of learning at Arkansas State University is its tradition of changing to meet the needs of its students and the society in which they live and work. Arkansas State University continues to grow and prosper because the university plans ahead for the needs of students.

Welcome to Arkansas State University Following the success of Collegiate Park, a 336-bed luxury apartment complex on the north side of campus, ASU also erected The Village Apartments, which accommodates up to 100 families. The new $29 million Student Union has taken prominent place in the center of campus, with the first portions opening in the spring of 2004. The second phase of the project was complete renovation of the existing Reng Center. Students and visitors enjoy a new dining hall, meeting facilities, student leadership offices, bookstore, computer labs, a food court and many other features. A new track and field complex has been completed on the south side of the campus. The $2.7 million facility features a 400-meter track facility, including venues for NCAA track and field events. The academic enterprise at ASU was enhanced with the addition of the $20 million Biosciences/Biotechnology Building. This facility was dedicated to multi-disciplinary research to fulfill purposes outlined in the Arkansas Tobacco Settlement. Several other projects which involve new construction or improved facilities are in various stages of planning and development, including a liberal arts classroom building in the heart of the campus and the recently completed Cooper Alumni Center. A groundbreaking ceremony for a new student recreation and wellness center was also held this past spring. 2009 ARKANSAS STATE BASEBALL MEDIA GUIDE

Athletic Facilities Arkansas State University’s athletic programs compete in top-of-the line facilities. ASU Stadium, which opened in 1974, has evolved into a beautiful stadium which seats 30,406 fans. That includes a cluster of exclusive suites in the south end zone atop the football office complex. A million dollar video/scoreboard is the focal point in the stadium. Coaches and student-athletes moved into a new $2.7 million track and field complex in spring 2004. It contains an eight-lane 400-meter track and can be set up for two NCAA venues. Three local country clubs graciously allow ASU’s men’s and women’s golf programs to utilize their facilities for practice and play. J.A. “Ike” Tomlinson Stadium-Kell Field serves as home to Red Wolves baseball. Built in 1993, the stadium received complete lighting in 1996 and, most recently, 206 field level seats were added for the 2008 season. ASU’s newest women’s program, bowling, competes in the Jonesboro Bowling Center, a 40lane state-of-the-art facility.

RidgePointe Country Club hosts the annual ASU Red Wolves Golf Classic

The ASU Soccer Park opened in 2001, one year after the program was installed. It is located at the north end of ASU Stadium and accommodates seating for 500. The complex also is the office headquarters for the program. The Convocation Center seats 10,038 for basketball and is the home of ASU’s men’s and women’s teams. It also is the site for women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s indoor track and field. ASU’s cross country teams run on a wellplanned course which originates and has its finish line at the Garry Meadows Arena at the Equine Center.

Dr. Robert Potts, University Chancellor Dr. Robert L. Potts, a veteran administrator in higher education, was selected after a national search on Oct. 6, 2006, to serve as the first chancellor of the Jonesboro campus of Arkansas State University. In that capacity, among his other duties he now provides oversight for ASU’s athletic program. After studying at Newbold College in England then completing his bachelor's degree at Southern Adventist University in Tennessee, Potts earned a juris doctor degree from the University of Alabama. He later earned a master of laws degree from Harvard University. Potts has had a distinguished career in higher education. Prior to joining ASU, he served as chancellor of the North Dakota University System. Previously, he served as president of the University of North Alabama in Florence, Ala., for more than 14 years, and prior to that was General Counsel of the University of Alabama System. During his first months at ASU-Jonesboro, Potts worked closely with the Faculty Senate in resolving issues of concern to the faculty, and planned for a major capital campaign and the University’s upcoming centennial celebration in 2009-2010. During the 2007-08 academic year, in addition to overseeing the process that led to the selection of Red Wolves as the new ASU mascot, he appointed seven task forces of faculty, staff, and students who have studied and made recommendations on major issues of importance to the future of the University. Many of those recommendations are now being implemented. The University is currently focused on increasing its enrollment through expansion of distance learning offerings and building a more robust international program, in addition to improving its facilities across the campus to make the campus more convenient and attractive to students. In addition, under Potts leadership, the University is taking steps to modernize and expand its curriculum and also to increase its research and sponsored program activities. As President of the University of North Alabama, his accomplishments included streamlining the administrative structure, implementing a shared governance decision making structure, raising admission standards, and establishing a development and advancement office. He and his administration also led the university's first capital campaign, established a Child Development Center, expanded the international students program, completed a campus master plan, and implemented several construction projects, including academic buildings, student recreation center, four residence halls, and others. While at UNA, Potts served a term as President of the Gulf South Athletic Conference, and University athletic teams won five Division II national championships. While with the North Dakota University System, Potts was chief executive officer for a statewide system that included 42,000 students on six four-year campuses and five twoyear campuses. Among the highlights of his work there, he provided leadership in creating a statewide collaboration plan for increasing the number of international students, in implementing a new higher education administrative software system, in continuing the highly acclaimed Higher Education Roundtable process that successfully aligned the higher education system with the needs of the state, and in implementing the first stage of a $50 million Economic Centers of Excellence program for system campuses. His list of professional activities is long, including membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Commission on Colleges, on the board of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, on the U.S. Department of Education's National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity, and on several accreditation teams. He also chaired the Secretary of the Army's ROTC Program Sub-Committee, which focused on improving the Army ROTC and Junior ROTC programs throughout the United States. He has also served terms on the boards of trustees of Alabama State University and Oakwood College. In addition to his administrative experience, he has taught at Boston University, University of Alabama, and University of North Alabama. Potts met his wife Irene, a native of Sweden, while they were participating in an international education program in England. They are the parents of two adult children. Julie Anna Potts and her husband, Parks Shackelford, live in the Washington, D.C. area where Julie Anna is general counsel for the American Farm Bureau Federation and Parks works for Florida Crystals, a sugar cane company. They have three children, Ella, Olivia, and Duke. Les Potts and his wife Holly also have two children, Claire and Anna Leslie. They live in Starkville, Miss., where he is employed at Mississippi State University and she is an active volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and other charitable organizations.

Dr. Dean Lee, Director of Athletics When the Arkansas State University athletics program reaches its 100th birthday in two years, Dean Lee's name will figure prominently in the celebration. ASU athletics is entering its 99th year and Lee still has a little more time to continue restoring the old and building new tradition for Arkansas State. Under Lee’s direction, the ASU athletic department enjoyed another significant year in 2007-08. Not only did ASU enjoy some of the most exciting moments ever on the fields, courts, and tracks, but also in the arenas of academics, donor and alumni involvement, community service and achievement. Lee was named the AAFF’s Outstanding Athletic Director in 2008 and serves on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Issues Committee, the BCS Athletic Directors Advisory Committee and the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association Board of Trustees. He has guided the athletic department to annual success academically and competitively, but last year ASU athletics once again enjoyed growth through a number of unique accomplishments and projects as well. For instance, 206 field-level seats and new party boxes available for corporate events were added to Tomlinson Stadium, the Convocation Center weight room underwent major renovations that included new weights and cardio equipment, festivities such as Jazz in Jonesboro continued to grow and improve, the women’s bowling team was the NCAA National Runner-up and Lee was instrumental in the recruitment and hiring of John Brady, who is just two years removed from an NCAA Final Four appearance, as the Red Wolves new men’s basketball coach. Those are just a few of the many ways the ASU athletic department continued to develop under Lee, who is always looking for new and creative ways to take the Red Wolves athletic program to the next level while maintaining its main focus on academics, competitive performance and a well-rounded environment for student-athletes. Entering his seventh year as Director of Athletics, Lee is even hungrier for ASU to have continued success in all areas. He has already made great strides in enabling Arkansas State's Department of Athletics to become one of the most respected programs around. Dr. Lee became ASU's 10th Director of Athletics July 9, 2002. It wasn't long before the department began to experience important and progressive changes which were capped by an unprecedented “State of A-State” address in the spring of 2004. When he concluded the address to a packed house, there was no mistaking that he is committed to building a successful program at ASU. In a very short time, he has orchestrated sellout and capacity crowds, overseen the expansion and growth of ASU's athletic facilities, and provided sound leadership to both the athletic staff and population of student-athletes. Lee came to ASU from Oklahoma State University, where he was the executive director of the OSU Athletic Associates and assistant vice president of the OSU Foundation. His administrative experience at two NCAA Division I-A universities, OSU and the University of Arkansas, and his achievements in mobilizing financial support make him well-suited for Arkansas State University and Northeast Arkansas. In addition, Dr. Lee's experience as athletic director at Arkansas Tech University and his familiarity with ASU and the state of Arkansas help him feel right at home. He earned his bachelor's degree in 1979 and master's in education at Henderson State University, then completed his doctor of education degree at the University of Arkansas in 1989. Although born in Tulsa, Okla., Lee competed in high school sports in Berryville, Arkansas, and was selected to play in the all-Star basketball and football games in 1975. He also played basketball, baseball and tennis at Henderson State, where he later served as an assistant coach. He was head basketball coach at Malvern High School early in his career. Dean and wife Reba are the parents of two daughters, Diamond Olivia (13) and Anna Pearl (11).
