DL Dan Milsten Update

Rogers High School is struggling this year. "We are 1-7 so far," said star defensive lineman <b>Dan Milsten</b> in a frustrated tone. "We only have a few starting seniors on both offense and defense so it's hard."

"We've gotten a lot better since the beginning of the season. It's pretty frustrating to lose, but we did beat Curtis and that was good," said Milsten.

Despite their record, Milsten is happy with the way he's been playing. "I'm doing pretty well. I played defensive tackle early in the season and now I'm playing some defensive end. The next game I'm going to play some middle linebacker. That should be fun, I think I'll enjoy that."

The preference for the 6-5 260-pounder is at end. "I like being outside, rushing the quarterback from out there."

Dan is very engrossed in football and it takes up a great deal of his time. "I haven't had that much time for anything but football, eat, and sleep pretty much. I keep busy. Not too much else is happening."

Rogers has one more game remaining, on Thursday. Then he makes the transition to round ball. "After football is over, I'll start lifting and then I'm going to play basketball. I've got game. I'm aggressive and I'm quick on my feet, but I seem to foul out a lot," said Milsten of his aggressive style.

"Basketball is fun, I enjoy it."

On the recruiting front, Milsten was the earliest verbal in the history of Washington and he's still firm about that but is getting interest from WSU and Oregon.

"I've talked to Mike Levenseller (WSU Offensive Coordinator) a few times, just about every week lately. He is just asking me if I'm interested. I told him that I'm committed to the Huskies, for sure," said Dan.

"I wouldn't mind taking a trip up there (to Pullman) just to see how things are, and I wouldn't mind taking a trip to Oregon either, but I'm still fully committed to U-dub. That is where I want to go. For sure."

Coach Randy Hart of the Huskies is keeping in touch with Milsten. "He leaves a lot of messages to see what I've been up to and to check to see how things are going. I haven't been home when he's called but he leaves messages for me."

Milsten has attended three Husky home games this year.
