Pinson Valley safety Blair headed to Faulkner
By Gary Lloyd
Pinson Valley safety Jeffery Blair is headed to Faulkner University.
Blair announced his decision at a signing ceremony at the high school today.
Blair said Faulkner has been showing interest since the beginning of the 2012 season. He was offered at his visit Saturday.
Blair, a 6-foot, 190-pounder, projects as a safety but could play outside linebacker.
“They really like me,” Blair said. “They said I’m a perfect fit for them.”
Blair said he plans to study mechanical engineering.
Blair said this is a dream come true.
“As a freshman, to think that I’d be up on a stage right now, getting a hat, signing with a college, it really didn’t hit my mind,” he said. “But now that I realize how serious football is, it feels really good. I thank God for giving me this opportunity.”
