2013: Listed as a reserve at linebacker on the preseason depth chart, but is expected to miss the 2013 season. A left shoulder injury suffered in spring practices required surgery of his labrum with a six-month rehabilitation time.

2012: Redshirted. Was selected as the team’s special teams scout team player of the week twice.

HS: Graduated from Central Valley HS in 2012. He was selected to play in the 4A/3A East-West All-State Game and earned second team All-Greater Spokane League honors. As a senior, he passed for 1,863 yards and 16 touchdowns, while completing 132-of-237 passes (56 percent) with 11 interceptions. Deyarmin also rushed for 621 yards (5.5 per carry) with six TDs. He helped the Bears finish 7-3 overall and 7-2 in the GSL. Central Valley defeated league rival Ferris 23-7 in the WIAA State 4A Playoffs, but fell to eventual champion Skyline 52-17 in the quarterfinals. A three-year starter, the Bears finished 6-4 in both his junior and sophomore seasons. He earned All-Tournament honors as he helped lead Central Valley to a runner-up finish at the WIAA State 4A Basketball Championships. He scored 13 points and had nine rebounds in a 48-42 title game loss to Davis, whose starting unit included Eastern football teammate Cooper Kupp. He had 14 points in a 53-52 quarterfinal victory over Garfield and 11 in a 52-51 triumph over Union in the semifinals. The Bears finished the season 22-4 after starting the year 3-3. In all, Deyarmin lettered nine times at CV – three in football, three in basketball, one in golf and two in track and field. He had a 3.92 grade point average in high school and was honored by the GSL with one of the 20 Scholar Athlete Awards that organization presented for male and female athletes in all sports for the 2011-12 school year. His Eagle teammates J.C. Agen (’09), Jake Miller (’10) and Branson Schmidt (’11) also attended Central Valley. They were coached in football at Central Valley by Rick Giampietri, a 1970 graduate of Eastern and letterman for the football team in 1968 and 1969.

Personal: Considering majoring in pre-med, which is fitting considering his history of injuries. In the summer before his seventh grade year he fell about 10 feet off a cliff while hiking near Lake Roosevelt with his family. He broke his clavicle and femur and has a long scar down his thigh where his femur was repaired. Then, the summer before his junior year in high school, Deyarmin’s appendix burst while on a cruise with his family. He required two surgeries, but managed to return for part of his junior season in football. His father is Brandon Deyarmin, a vice principal at Central Valley and a former soccer coach at CV and University high schools in Spokane.
