Easton Dean knew he would be an Iowa State Cyclone before the 2018 football season began, but today surrounded by family, friends, teachers, coaches, and almost the entire student body, Dean made it official.
“You know it feels good to finally put the pen to the paper, you know, just make it official that I’m officially a Cyclone. I get to be able to get started to get ready to go,” said Dean, about signing.
The 6’6” senior finished his career at Labette County High School with several of the schools passing records. In his final campaign as a Grizzly, Dean would throw for 2,042 yards with 14 passing touchdowns and add 554 yards on the ground with 4 scores.
“I feel like I kinda left my mark, like left a lot of passing records and stuff. You know, we made a lot of records last year in football. Had a really successful year. I think we as a team left a legacy, you know. Me, as a quarterback, I left a pretty good roll and legacy, too.”
Signing during the early period allows Dean to graduate high school a semester early and officially report to Iowa State in January of 2019.
Dean is believed to be the first LCHS football player to sign an FBS offer straight from high school.
