Dean Biasucci is a Tecmo Bowl legend. As the strongest kicker in the game, he could kick a field goal from his own 45. This came in handy especially when you were piloting the Colts anemic offensive playbook.
A barefoot kicker out of Western Carolina University, Biasucci was originally signed by the Atlanta Falcons in 1984. Cut in camp, Dean was picked up in week 2 by the Baltimore Colts, who needed an injury replacement to Raul Allegre. After bouncing off in 1985 and back onto the roster in 1986, Dean would go on to eclipse many Baltimore/ Indianapolis Colts records. He kicked an NFL record 6 50+ yard field goals in 1988, and a career long 56 yarder in 1991. Late in his career with the Colts, he’d take over as the franchise’s top kicker in history in field goal percentage and points. Dean was signed by Pittsburgh in 1995, but was cut when the team brought in fellow veteran Norm Johnson. He wouldn’t be out of work for long as he played the final 8 games of the year with the St. Louis Rams.
After retiring from football, Biasucci spent 9 years or so pursuing an acting career, garnering small roles in movies and TV. He’s also been involved in building apartment complexes and communities.
Well Dean threw me for a loop. I sent him a slew of really nice cards to sign, thinking that a kicker would love to sign his cards, but instead he sent me back one card, and it was his worst one at that. At least he was nice enough to sign one…
