Congratulations to Blake on his college choice and good luck in the future!
The Benjamin School/Trinity Pawling School
Palm Beach Storm/Revolution, Team Florida
Why did you choose this college?
They have a long lacrosse history, play a very competitive schedule and have gone to the NCAA’s many times. More importantly, Washington College will be a great fit academically, and they have a very strong Business Management major. Plus Chestertown and the surrounding area is beautiful.
What are your first memories of the sport?
Playing with my older brother in our front yard.
What part of the process was most surprising to you about the recruiting process and what would you like to pass on to those who are going to face it in the future?
Get ready for a crazy ride. I was lucky to have supportive parents who helped me keep motivated even after missing my entire Junior season due to a knee injury and then the following summer/fall recruiting circuit recovering from knee surgery.
Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?
My mom and dad, and my older brother. All the coaches who taught me the game, especially Coach Rye who I played for for four years at Benjamin. My teammates. And of course, Dr. James Andrews for fixing my knee.
