Personal

Blake chose rowing in high school when his friends and family really wanted him to give it a try. He gave in a was hooked within a few weeks…He lists making the U.S. National Team as his most memorable achievement…His goal is to make the 2016 Paralympic Team…He’s still not sure what he wants to do when he grows up…Blake lists his older brother Anderson as the most influential person in his life, saying, “We’re very close in age, so we’ve done just about everything together, especially anything involving sports. He was always a fierce competitor and when combined with the fact that he was always a little bigger and stronger than I was, it meant that he would beat me in just about everything we played. Eventually that competitive streak rubbed off a little bit, and I’m really glad I had him to push me all those years.”
