- In his hometown of Greensboro, GA, Blair volunteers at Relay For Life, a branch of the American Cancer Society. The subject of cancer is near to Blair’s heart, as his grandmother, Annie Ruth Peek, passed away from colon cancer while he was growing up. In the future, Blair aims to start his own foundation with the goal of creating a community where people who are going through life-changing experiences can call home. “I lost my grandmother to colon cancer. I lost my grandfather to a heart attack. My stepfather was in a car accident and is now a paraplegic. So, those people have a special place in my heart and I want to get involved in helping with causes like those.”
- Blair cites the transition from 8th grade to high school, and specifically a conversation he had with his band director, as a key moment that stoked his competitive fire. Entering the 9th grade, his band director wanted him to continue playing the tuba in the school’s band and not play football because he wouldn’t see the field as a freshman. That year, Blair became a starter on varsity. “That’s definitely the one moment that sticks out and helped me develop in the football world,” said Blair.
