Player Bio

At A Glance

Junior Clubs: Colac
Debut: -
Recruited from: North Ballarat VFL
Brownlow Votes: -

Towers made solid progress in his first year as a Swan, playing a variety of roles in the NEAFL, including half-forward, defence and on a wing. 

Used predominantly in front of goal late in the season, the 189cm prospect was a regular goalkicker and was an emergency on two occasions. 

The first-round draft pick will be seeking his AFL debut this year.

Draft history: 2012 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Sydney) No. 22 overall.

2014 Coaches Call

His 2013 was a learning year for Dean. He played both forward and back, so he was able to play a number of roles for our reserves team. He learnt a lot in his first year at the club and improved as he went along.

His pre-season has been
good. By all reports he came back to the club in reasonable condition. Obviously one of his strengths is his leg speed, and that’s something we see on the track and his pre-season has been really solid.

We hope in 2014 that he can keep improving. We want to see him develop his game and his understanding. He’s potentially going to play a lot forward this year, so we want him to make the most of his chances up forward.
