Red turf investment pays off for former EWU standout

Former Eastern Washington University all-American Michael Roos didn't have to wait long for the $500,000 investment he made in his alma mater's Red Turf Project to pay off.

You can read what Roos had to say about Eastern's magical run to Friday's championship game of this year's Football Championship Subdivision playoffs in this story that ran in Tuesday morning' s S-R. I've also included this link to the list of former EWU players planning to join Roos and his wife, Katherine, at title game in Frisco, Texas.
