Rod's father was in the Air Force, so the family moved a lot in the elementary years of Rod's life. They stayed living in Boise, ID starting in Rod's 4th grade of elementary school. He graduated from Boise High School. Rod married Kathleen Russell in May of 1986. Rod worked for the Sandpiper Restaurant starting in Boise, ID then the Sandpiper Restaurant in Twin Falls, and we arrived in Pocatello, in 1985, where he was Assistant Manager under Terry Armitage for a few years before becoming the General Manager himself. Rod loved his family, his grandchildren, and his Sandpiper family. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting, woodworking, leather working, walking at the Wellness Center, bicycling, camping, and especially taking the RZR (side by side) out in the mountains near Pocatello. He was invested in helping out one Sandpiper family member attending Idaho State University with their tuition per year. We will be starting a Scholarship Fund through the Sandpiper in Rod Russell's memory to help continue that tradition.

Eagle Soccer Conquers 3-1 Victory At Idaho State

POCATELLO, Idaho - For its first Big Sky Conference match of the season, the Eastern Washington University women's soccer team traveled to face Idaho State today (Sept. 24) and conquered a 3-1 victory at Davis Field in Pocatello, Idaho. Maddie Morgan led the charge scoring the first and last goal of the contest, helping EWU secure its first conference win to begin league play 1-0, as they improve their overall record to 3-6. "First, an enormous amount of credit to Idaho State. ISU head coach Debs Brereton and her staff have an incredibly young team that plays with a ton of energy, plays hard and is totally bought in to their game plan. They put a lot of pressure on us all night long and really challenged us and kept us from getting into any kind of rhythm," said head coach Missy Strasburg, who collects her first Big Sky Conference victory at the helm. "While we struggled to solve challenges in the moment as a team tonight, we got great goals from Maddie Morgan and Maddie Kem, off perfect distributions by Mya Elder-Hammond, Gillian Martin, and Brittany Delridge, respectively. Kelsee Winston was exceptional in goal again tonight and our back five players put in another 90-minute blue collar shift. We got a lot of great minutes from our roster tonight, led by Brooke Flores who had her best performance of the year."
