Poway, Calif., tight end Ryan Deehan had his house burn down late last month in the horrific fires that affected many parts of San Diego.
But the 6-foot-4, 228-pound four-star prospect hasn't let the major disappointment on the field effect what's going on the field.
"We're undefeated right now at 9-0," Deehan, the nation's No. 11 tight end, said.
"I think we can win it all this year. I've been doing pretty good. We've been winning games so there's no reason for me to be upset about anything, even though I haven't been catching as many balls."
Deehan admits, though, the loss of his house has taken its toll on him emotionally.
"I've just been trying to make everything as normal as possible," he said.
"I haven't been talking to the schools much because of the fires and everything. Washington is not in it anymore. It's just the other three now. They're all even. Colorado, Oregon, and Arizona State. I've already visited all three of them, but I'm not really sure when I'll make my decision.
"Things have just been too crazy around here with the fires and the playoffs. I need to get past the season and then I'll figure everything else out."
