Blake played varsity football for three years and started all three years. He did not allow one sack in his entire career. He said, “Football camps were important to me over the summer. I attended football camps at U of M, Notre Dame, and the Midwest Linemen’s camp. Football has been my life for the past nine years and I have concentrated all my time to become a better athlete.”


Blake said, “I thank you God for guiding me through this experience in my life. I thank my Mom for always being there when I needed her, my Dad for always being there on the sidelines cheering me on, my friends and family for supporting me in my decision on going to Oklahoma State to play football, Pastor Wayne Compton for making my dream come true and all the people I have met in my life that have inspired me to be a better person and athlete.”
