High school and college

Dewar attended Indiana University, where he was a standout as a halfback on the school's football team starting as a sophomore in 1942.[1] He ran back a punt 90 yards for a touchdown in a 53–0 victory over Butler University that year.[1] Dewar joined the U.S. Army in 1943 during World War II and played service football at Camp Grant in Rockford, Illinois.[2] He was selected in 1944 to play in the College All-Star Game, a now-defunct matchup between the National Football League champion and a squad composed of the country's best college players.[3] After the war, Dewar returned for a final season at Indiana.[4]

Professional football career

Dewar was selected with the 173rd pick in the 1947 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams.[5] He instead joined the Cleveland Browns of the All-America Football Conference along with former Indiana teammate Bob Cowan.[6][7] The Browns finished the 1947 season with a 12–1–1 record and won the AAFC championship against the New York Yankees.[8] After a year with the team, Dewar was sent to the Brooklyn Dodgers. He played one season there before leaving football.[5]
