Thatâs according to American Banker magazine, which included American Express Centurion Bank president and CEO Andrea Moss on that list in its October issue.
âIâm quite surprised and happy about the award,â Moss said during a recent telephone interview.
ARIMO â Wet, muddy and miserable. Those three words describe the total experience for the Snake River Panthers on Friday night as they traveled to Marsh Valley for their conference opener on a less than ideal field.
Two days of rain certainly helped the home town eagles as they took advantage of the sloppy conditions, pounding the ball at the Panthers on every opportunity, eventually culminating in a 14-0 shut out.

BLACKFOOT â It was senior night at Blackfoot High School as the Blackfoot Broncos tangled with cross county rival Shelley for a High Country Conference tilt on the grid iron.
Playing in a steady drizzle for the entirety of the game, the two teams slugged it out with Blackfoot pulling away in the second half for a 28-0 victory.
"We did a lot better job in the second half defensively," Blackfoot head coach Stan Buck said. "The kids really stepped it up and played well, especially in the second half."
