When his mother signed him up for a crew camp in Sarasota, Florida, what Clark Dean liked at first was just finding a chance to hang out with friends and have fun. As his career progressed into the competitive high school and junior level, he found it both difficult and rewarding in numerous ways.

“I think rowing is very difficult,” said Dean of Sarasota Crew, the 2015 Fan’s Choice Junior Athlete of the Year. “I think it’s really difficult and it’s really rewarding. It’s difficult in the fact that is very monocular and you’re doing the same thing over and over. I think it’s difficult in that you’re workouts are not going to be like a scrimmage, or something like that. It’s going to be doing two 30-minute pieces on an erg, sitting there looking at a wall.

“But I think it’s really rewarding, standing on the medal stand with your three best friends or your seven, eight, best friends and knowing that all your hard work paid off.”

Hear what Dean has to say about rowing and what he hopes for his future in the sport during an interview prior to the Golden Awards Dinner on Nov. 19.
