Multi-Position Talent Leads St. Christopher's into 2011

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- St. Christopher's always expects to reach the state playoffs of the VISAA.  This year, they'll rely heavily on a returning multi-position star to help lead them there and hopefully beyond.

Blair Farinholt is a senior who head coach Michael Turner will utilize to the fullest.  Farinholt is a returning all-state wide receiver, but will be used at quarterback, running back and defensive back as well, and could see some special teams work, too.  Turner likens his senior multi-purpose player to having a utility infielder in baseball and is looking for big things from his this season.

Farinholt is also a lacrosse player, the sport he plans to pursue in college.  He is putting the finishing touches on rehabbing from a knee injury that he suffered while playing lacrosse, but is expected to be ready to go for practice this week.

The Saints finished 2010 with a 6-5 record and are hoping to improve on that this season.  They'll hit the field Friday to open their 2011 season when they travel to Trinity Episcopal for a 4:30 pm kickoff.
