KeiVarae Russell back to full strength 

September, 14, 2011
Running back KeiVarae Russell (Everett, Wash./Mariner) is one of the top backs in the Northwest and showed why last Friday when he made his season debut.

Russell missed his season opener two weeks ago after crashing on a moped and suffering a concussion. He showed no signs of injury last Friday rushing for 284 yards and four touchdowns in the teams 28-24 win over Mount Vernon (Wash.).

"I was ready to go," Russell said. "I was never more excited to play than before that game. I hated to miss the opener so I had two weeks of energy just burning up inside me and I released it all on the field and it felt great."
