Dean Towers (born 4 May 1990) is an Australian rules footballer who plays for the Sydney Swans in Australian Football League (AFL). He was drafted with 22nd pick in 2012 AFL Draft. Towers debuted in round 17, 2014 against the Carlton Football Club.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Towers was born in Perth and spent his early years there before his family returned to Victoria. He grew up on a beef farm in Kawarren and attended Sacred Heart School and Elliminyt Primary School prior to spending his secondary schooling years at Colac College. He was a 3rd year undergraduate student in Physical Education (Teaching) at the University of Ballarat at the time he was drafted. He has two siblings, a brother Ryan and a sister Breanna. Towers' family were originally fans of Geelong Football Club but changed to following the Sydney Football Club when the Swans drafted Towers. Dean's brother Ryan quotes that "Yeah I'd say that we're converts now but I've still got a soft spot for Geelong."

Philanthropy[edit]

Towers has spent time over summer volunteering as a lifesaver at the Wye River Surf Life Saving Club.[citation needed]
