Mariner’s Russell picked

Mariner running back/defensive back KeiVarae Russell has been nominated to play in the prestigious U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Russell is one of 440 nominees. The 90 finalists will be selected in December. The game is scheduled for January at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

“This is a great honor for KeiVarae and Mariner,” Mariner coach John Ondriezek. “For Mariner to have a re[presentative in that game would be a great accomplishment.”

Ondriezek said Russell has 15 football scholarship offers on the table, including ones from Notre Dame, Boise State and almost every Pac-10 school. Russell, Mariner’s student body president, has a 3.9 grade point average and takes mostly honors classes.

“I think he has an excellent chance (of making the final 90),” Ondriezek said.
