Coach Muuss on Jeralds:

"Blair brings a lot to our program. What I like most about him is that he is a soccer player first, who has great feet and an excellent ability to read the game. He is a student of the game who is always learning and working to improve. Add that to the fact that he is a special athlete, who moves extremely well and can cover a lot of ground quickly. We believe he has an extreme amount of potential here at DU."
