Biography

Goldmine:

  • The 49ers, in partnership with Fresh Lifelines for Youth (FLY), visited the Santa Clara Juvenile Hall to work with residents on frustration management during the 2018 season. Blair III and his teammates held a discussion with the young people, and later divided into groups to engage in football drills that demonstrated the proper way to focus negative energy in a positive manner. After the drills, they held another discussion centered on making right decisions when it comes to frustration management.
  • In his hometown of Greensboro, GA, Blair has volunteered 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.”
