Russ Gammie is a member of the flag football team that were all struck by lightning.
Russ was playing flag football with his team when they were struck by lightning. He was brought to the ER where his injuries were assessed. He couldn't feel his arm and was told it was probably transitory paralysis, which would go away on its own. It was already improving by the time he was examined.
In the ER, he asked about his teammate Kerry Schultz. He later confessed his love to her, but she didn't reciprocate his feelings.
Warren, Mitch, Russ, and Kerry are friends who all play on the same flag football team.
