Blair, a senior, finished 36th in the state last season and helped Plainfield Central to an eighth-place finish. He also played quarterback for the Wildcats’ football team.
What are your goals for this season?
Basically to repeat everything from last year. We want to repeat sectionals and make it to state and make it to the second day again and hopefully, place again.
In this area, you always have to go through a tough sectional. Does that help you raise your game?
It does. It’s great competition and it’s fun bowling against the top kids around. Our sectional is probably the toughest sectional that there is. It definitely prepares us for the state tournament, though.
Have you ever bowled a 300?
No, I wish. I was short in our first invitational this year, the Lake Park Invitational, by one shot. I shot a 289. It was still a good score.
What’s easier: Wii bowling or real bowling?
Wii bowling, definitely. I think I have about 40 300 games on Wii bowling.
What’s on your iPod?
Really anything, from rap to country and some 80s and 70s music. I listen to everything.
If you could take any celebrity to prom, who would it be?
Mila Kunis, because she’s amazing.
If you had to go on one reality show, which would you pick?
“Minute to Win it.” You can win a million dollars and you can practice the games at home.
You’re stranded on a deserted island and can have an endless supply of one food. What do you pick?
Starbursts. That’s my favorite kind of food. The pink ones are the best. You’ve got to have the pink ones.
