Dean Smith starred in football, basketball, and baseball for FA. He was a member of the 1982 state champion football team and is the school’s all-time leading scorer in basketball. Dean was the second Pony to be named to the Bangor Daily News All-State first team, and he was All-LTC in football and All-Penquis League in basketball and baseball. Dean went on to an outstanding basketball career at the University of Maine, where he also became a 1,000-point scorer. He was awarded the Walter Byers award, which recognizes the top scholar-athlete in the country, and the University of Maine has since named their scholar-athlete award in his honor. Dean has continued to give back to the basketball community in town by putting on many free clinics for our youth.
