New, 2 comments

Today we finish off the 80’s with a local boy: 2015 Idaho State champion, #80, Christian Blaser

#80, Christian Blaser, RS Freshman, WR

Stats

Height: 6’1"

Weight: 176 lbs.

High School: Rocky Mountain High School, Boise, ID

How'd he get to The Blue™?

Christian Blaser came to The Blue by way of the local recruiting pipeline, as a walk-on from Rocky Mountain High.

Nickname

“Starscream”

“Megatron” is already taken by one of the greatest receivers of all time, but Christian still gets to be a Transformer due to his position change from high school to college.

Look-a-like

Career highlights

Thus far, because he is a freshman, Christian doesn’t yet have any Boise State highlights, but he was quite the wunderkind while he was playing for Rocky Mountain. In his senior year (2015) he quarterbacked the school to an 11-1 record and their first state title, earning all-conference honors in the process.

2017 prospectus

Christian will be suiting up to play wide receiver for the Broncos, and that will present some opportunities as well as challenges. On the one hand, there is very minimal proven depth behind future NFLer (He goin’ to the league—let’s be real), Cedrick Wilson. On the other hand, there are a lot of wide receivers on the team that have something to prove. There are 9 wide receivers presently on the roster, but even more incoming with the newest freshman class. So, the opportunity is there for a guy like Christian Blaser, it’s just going to be a crowded field. But, hey, if Legedu Nanee and Thomas Sperbeck taught us anything, it’s that high school quarterbacks can become pretty dang good receivers. So, we’ll see what happens, and wish Mr. Blaser luck in the meantime!

Is he on Twitter?

As luck would have it, yes

Completely made up fact

Christian Blaser isn’t actually even his real name. It was his cover when he infiltrated the American high school system, at the behest of the Department of Education, in order to uncover wasteful excesses of Jello distribution in cafeterias. He’s just super fast and likes going to church. The ‘playing football’ thing was basically a happy accident, born of his deep cover.
