MACON - Every Thursday, the 13WMAZ Sports team turns their spotlight on a central Georgia student-athlete who shines on and off of their field of play. This week, meet a baseball player who is striking batters out on the diamond and hitting home runs in the classroom. His name is Matt Blair
Blair has been a part of two Tattnall baseball teams that have finished on top as state champions, and this year, the senior is on top again, this time from the mound as one of the best arms in the Trojans' rotation.
So it looks like Blair will still bring the sauce on the mound and in the books for some time.
Blair says he plans to study business and would love to work in the front office for a Major League Baseball franchise. The Trojans are looking to defend their state championship as they play in the second round against George Walton Academy.
