Sammy Blair

Some of you may remember the baseball recruit Sammy Blair. He tore his ACL in the fall of his senior year while playing football and never played at Arkansas. He was the nephew of a friend of mine. I was informed today that he was killed in a wreck. I found this on line:

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) – Our condolences go out to the family of Sammy Blair. The 2016 Navasota High School grad died this morning from injuries sustained in an ATV accident.

Blair played baseball for Blinn College last season and originally went to the University of Arkansas out of high school.

He was a part of two football state championship teams in Navasota, a two-time baseball district MVP, and a two-time participant in the state track meet.

Blair was 21 years old.


What a shame. Anytime of year it’s hard to loose a family member but this close to Christmas it will be really hard on his family. I will pray for them.
