Georgia Tech kicker Scott Blair said he has received mostly positive support from fans, family and friends since he missed an extra-point attempt against Georgia that would have tied the game at 35. The Yellow Jackets lost 42-34.
“They have supported me the whole year as well, but they really got behind me after the kick to help me kick my head up,” Blair, a senior, said.
Blair said the snap was good, the hold was good, but the kick was bad, sailing to the left. It was his first miss in 77 attempts.
There have been some ugly cyber-moments during the past two weeks.
Blair took down his facebook page because of some negative messages. However, someone told him he should turn it into a positive and post a message thanking fans for their support. He posted this:
I want to thank you all for your support the past 4 years. You have made my college football experience a memorable one. I enjoyed playing for GT and for every one of you. You all inspired me to give my best effort each
