"Blake’s calm demeanor and earned self-confidence set the tone for those in his boat and the entire team. Whether Blake was in a single or a quad, he could be counted on for a podium finish. Earning a seat in the Varsity Quad his sophomore year was never a question of a divergence in his desire to win and his ability to win. This strong and singular focus has been a recipe for success in his academics and his success in Student Council activities."
–Coach Pitts Yandell
