FREE! Washington quarterback Daryn Sebelius knows that his team
will have opponents giving them their best shot after this club made a deep

very familiar with as well.
"We know that we have a target on our backs because of being state

Sebelius believes that good things will come from the Demons regardless of

State. That is the heaviest one."
Sebelius has a few others that are keeping an eye on his progress as well.
"There are some colleges like Ellsworth and Loras. There is also Knox College
in Illinois. They are sending me a lot of stuff since last school year."
