Chris Blair's Autobiography

Hello Coaches!  My name is Chris Blair from Monahans, Texas. I'm a 6'9" power forward who's hungry to play college basketball.  I've always been a very goal oriented, determined, and dedicated person.  Whether it is academics, basketball, community service or being a good son and sibling I pride myself on being loyal and committed, while putting forward maximum effort.  

As an incoming high school Freshman I  was a  6'3 180 pounds. I had never played basketball, I've worked hard to become a player. I've now grown to a 6'9" Junior who is determined to better myself in basketball and to improve my athletic skill. Aside form the growth spurt (which has also served as a great motivator) I have improved greatly in my skill set and my on the court success is showing results that hard work tends to bring.  I went from rarely seeing the court in Albuquerque, but this year as a junior I'm blossoming in my new home of Monahans, Texas.

As a basketball player I would describe myself as hard working, strong, fundamental, and a good mid  range shooter.  I'm humble; the same guy who was a 6'3" beginner is the same young man I am today.  I'm putting in the work and am a sponge, absorbing information from my basketball mentors. 

A few comparisons I've recently started receiving are to Spurs greats Tim Duncan, and LaMarcus Aldridge.  I've got a long way to go but it's exciting that others see something in me.

Academically I work hard as well and challenge my self by taking advanced level classes to prepare me for college. I've taken many honors classes as well as college classes such as English 4/ Composition 1&2, College US History, Honors Pre-Calculus, Honors Physics, College Leadership Development, Medical Microbiology, and maintain a 4.4 GPA.

A number of awards, honors and groups I have received recognition from are:

National Honors Society
National Scholars Program
Basketball Most Improved Player 2016 and 2017
Selected for All Tournament First Team 3 times
Peer Tutor
