Battle of the Boulevard 2014

On September 20th Blair's Varsity football team played the Northwood Gladiators in the 2014 “Battle of the Boulevard.” It did not take long for the Blazers to take the lead in the game, largely due to Blair's exceptionally hard-hitting defense and powerful running game. After each failed Gladiator drive the Blazers would pick up right where they left off, blazing down the field to touchdown after touchdown. Blair won the game 56 to 0.
