Other than his kick off and punting duties, Blair never played much of a factor in the game as the Yellow Jackets rarely threatened to score.
After Tech’s first score, they seldom ventured into field goal range and when they did, coach Paul Johnson urged his team to go for the fourth down conversion.
Despite the quiet ending, the former Calhoun star made a big impact in his senior season.
Blair led the team during the season with 82 points, as he converted 15-of-17 field goals and 37-of-38 point after kicks. His lone miss PAT gained some notoriety against UGA in the Jackets’ final regular-season game.
After a Tech touchdown in the fourth quarter, Blair came out to kick the game tying extra point but the ball sailed left and the Jackets would go on to lose the game.
Despite the miss, Blair has been very consistent for Tech, and before the miss against UGA, he had converted 77 straight point after attempts.
Blair’s field goal range accuracy increased tremendously this year as he hit all seven of his kicks from 39-yards in and 8-of-10 between 40 and 49 yards.
Against Duke in the second to last game, Blair hit all three of his kicks from 40-yards or more.
He also hit three 40-plus kicks against Wake Forest.
Blair steadily improved every year he was at Tech. He completed 63-percent of his kicks in 2008, 70-percent in 2009, and 88-percent this year.
Last season Blair hit four field goals to break the ACC Championship game record. Included were kicks from 48 and 49 yards.
Blair is a multi-talented kicker as he also handled the kickoffs and some punting duties.
As a kickoff specialist, Blair averaged 62.3 yards with five touchbacks. He averaged 39.6 yards punting, with a long of 51. He dropped two balls inside the 20 yard line.
Blair also added five tackles on special teams including one in the Bowl game.
