Dean College students helped kick-off the NFL season On
Thursday, September 10, 2015 at Gillette Stadium where the Super Bowl Champion
New England Patriots took on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Over 125 Dean College students, including AMGT, Business,
Dance and Sport Management majors, participated as on-field performers for
Thursday’s pre-game celebration. With close to 300 on-field performers, Dean students comprised 50 percent of the on-field pre-game
presence at Gillette Stadium.
Participating as an on-field banner holder was John Reed
’17, a business management major from Warwick, RI. “This was an opportunity of
a lifetime,” said John. “It was incredible to have the opportunity to go behind
the scenes and participate in an event like this. This is an experience that I
will tell my kids when I am older. Being involved at Dean has opened up
opportunities that I never thought were possible.”
Dean College was thrilled to partner with the New England
Patriots to help deliver a world-class pre-game presentation. Following the
performance, students will receive an event debrief in the classroom to bring
the learning experience full circle.
This opportunity was brought to life through The Center for
Business, Entertainment and Sport Management at Dean College, a partnership
with the Kraft Sports Group.
Check back tomorrow on Facebook and our blog for more
information and pictures from the event.

Franklin, MA (September 7, 2015) – Dean College Alum Rodney “Lucky”
Whitehead ‘13 lived up to his nickname this past Saturday, September 5, 2015,
earning a spot on the 53-man roster of the Dallas Cowboys.
“Lucky” Whitehead was a standout wide receiver at Dean in 2013 before transferring
to Florida Atlantic University (FAU). During his time at Dean College, he
earned first team All-American honors as well as first team All-Conference
recognition at both wide receiver and return specialist. Lucky was recognized
as the team's special team player of the year as a senior.
“This is a
tremendous accomplishment for Lucky,” said Todd Vasey, Associate Athletic
Director and Head Football Coach at Dean College. “It is really exciting to see
all of his hard work, dedication, and perseverance payoff for him. Somehow I
have a feeling the best is still yet to come.”
at FAU Lucky averaged 24.6 yards per kickoff return and used his elusiveness
and speed (4.41 in the 40) on long touchdowns, on a run (80), and a punt return
caught the eye of Dallas Cowboys Owner and GM Jerry Jones early on in training
camp. "Lucky has been impressive out here," Jones said, via Brandon
George of the Dallas Morning News. "He seems to always be there solid. He
seems to be in position. I like that. He's doing well."
#13 jersey, Lucky solidified his chances of making the team by producing an 8-yard
touchdown reception from quarterback Tony Romo in the Cowboys’ 28-14 preseason
loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
definitely crazy for me,” Whitehead said via Clarence Hill, Jr. of the
Star-Telegram. “A lot of guys thought I should have celebrated. I was just
letting it soak in. It was such a surreal moment. But it was definitely big.”
As the NFL
season kicks off this Thursday, September 10, 2015, Lucky will have to keep up
the momentum. Currently at the 5th spot on the wide receiver list,
Lucky will compete with big names like Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Cole
Beasley and Devin Street for a starting spot. Regardless, Lucky has proved his
namesake and made the cut.
