Spotlight On: Zach Blair

Meet Zach – wheelchair basketball athlete, veteran, and all-around badass. Zach is the definition of inspiring. He says no to limits, yes to hard work, and is passionate about making a positive impact on kids with disabilities by teaching them that they can do anything they want to, they just have to put their minds to it. To say we love him and are in awe of everything he’s doing is an understatement.

We sat down with Zach to learn a little more about him, check it out below!

Q: What’s one thing outside of Basketball or something quirky that you love to do for fun? A: I am a video gamer. You can always find me on Fortnite, 2k or any kind if team-oriented game.

Q: Do you have any upcoming travel plans or recent trips you’ve taken?  A: I recently was able to participate in the ParaPanamerican Games as a member of the Puerto Rican National team for wheelchair basketball. It was an amazing experience and it helped me get my name across the globe in the sport.

Q: You mentioned “work” is your favorite word—do you have a favorite quote or mantra that inspires you?  A: My favorite quote is you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take or DARE TO BE DIFFERENT.
