The Coquitlam Junior Adanacs Lacrosse Club are proud to honor Geordie Dean and the retirement of his number 5 Coquitlam Junior Adanacs jersey on Friday July 8th, 2016 at 7:30 pm at the Poirier Main Arena in Coquitlam. The official ceremony will take place prior to the start of the Coquitlam Junior Adanacs / New Westminster Salmonbellies game.
Born in New Westminster on December 8, 1960, Geordie was raised in Coquitlam and began his Lacrosse career through Coquitlam’s Minor Lacrosse system.
Geordie Dean spent four seasons with the Coquitlam Junior Adanacs Lacrosse Club from 1978 to 1981 playing in a total of 100 Junior ‘A’ Lacrosse games. In his four season’s playing Junior ‘A’ Lacrosse, Geordie led the league in scoring in 1978 and 1981. In his career, Geordie recorded a total of 378 career points which is currently ranked 15th in all-time points in the BC Junior Lacrosse League.
In 1978, Geordie received the league honor as rookie of the year and was the league’s most valuable player in 1981. Geordie was also a second team league all-star in 1978 and a first team league all-star in 1979, 1980 and 1981.
In 1982, Geordie was drafted into the Western Lacrosse Association by the New Westminster Salmonbellies. As a member of the Salmonbellies, Geordie played in 53 Mann Cup games in nine series, winning three times (1986, 1889 and 1991). His last appearance in the national finals was 1995 when he established Mann Cup records for most goals (67), most assists (94) and most points (161). The goal and point records have since been eclipsed but the most assists record is still the best.
In 2003, Geordie was inducted into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame where he will be forever known as a two-way player, combining outstanding defensive prowess with a powerful presence on offense.
The Coquitlam Junior Adanacs Lacrosse Club are very proud to hoist Geordie Dean’s number 5 Junior Adanacs jersey into the rafters at the Coquitlam Main Arena.
Congratulation Geordie on this well-deserved honor!
