Blosser Family Consisted Of Three State Champions

Brent Blosser started a family tradition when his Sarasota High School team won the Florida state championship in 1973. His son, Greg, was a member of the 1987 and 1989 title teams, while brother Doug played on the 1993 and 1994 championship teams.

Greg was a first-round pick of the Boston Red Sox in 1989. He played parts of two seasons in the majors with the Red Sox. He played professionally for more than ten years.

Doug was a third-round pick of the Kansas City A’s in 1995, but his career was cut short when he died in a car accident at age 21 in 1998.
