Video interview with Mariner football player KeiVarae Russell
High school football practice for the 2012 season begins on Wednesday. I have been working on a few stories for The Herald's preview section and checking in with the area's best players.
The most highly recruited local player this year Mariner High senior KeiVarae Russell. I met up with the always talkative, eternally enthusiastic running back/safety earlier today in Everett.
Russell, a 6-foot, 170-pounder, already has 17 scholarship offers. In this video interview, Russell talks about how he performed at prestigious summer events (including The Opening and Gridiron Kings) and his current top five schools: Notre Dame, USC, University of Washington, Cal, and Boise State.
(By the way: Russell's most recent offer was from USC. "That was a big one!" said Russell, who wears No. 5 on his uniform in honor of former Trojans star Reggie Bush.)
Finally, here is Russell's impressive 2010 recruiting video, in case you haven't already seen it:
