• Arizona Assistant Joseph Blair Spearheading Charity


    Contributing Writer
    Martin Hayvush


    As a former player and a current assistant on the University of Arizona Men's Basketball team, Joseph Blair is deeply tied to Tucson and the Southern Arizona community. He was a member of Arizona's 1994 Final Four team, and has been instrumental in the Cats' historic 23-2 start to the 2013-14 season. But Blair's dedication to Arizona extends beyond competitive basketball -- he's using a combination of sports and community service to give back to the state of Arizona and its youth.

    The Blair Charity Group, led by Blair, is a coalition that seeks to provide accessible programs, sports camps, clinics and leagues to the youth of Southern Arizona in order to build leadership, life skills and community engagement.

    By running basketball camps that place focus on both on and off court responsibilities, the Blair Charity Group strikes a balance between teaching ways to maintain physical fitness and overall physical balance while cultivating teamwork, responsibility, and encouraging social interaction within diverse economic, social, and geographical groups.

    The 2014 year is going to be a busy one for the Blair Charity Group, and as always volunteer help is greatly appreciated. If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering to help the youth of Southern Arizona through the Blair Charity Group, click here for more information.

      Blair has been doing charity work in Tucson for sometime even before he became an assistant. Solid member of the community and what he's doing to get kids involved with athletics is close to home for me. I commend Coach Blair and wish him the best in thus endeavor.

      What a role model for our young cats. They could learn so much from him on the court, but even more from him off the court. Much love Joseph.
