    I hope that Blake wins this award. Much deserved. He is a total ‘Class Act’ of a student athlete. He is humble, a lead by example captain……..that just goes out there and gives 110 percent, ALL THE TIME !!!
    He is a player who is most respectful of his coaches, teammates and the support staff on that Lancer hockey team. I had the pleasure of seeing him practice and play the past few of seasons. It was a pleasure to take care of his skate maintenance. He was always very appreciative and respectful of the equipment staff and myself.
    He is a very fine gentleman, in addition to his skill as a hockey player.
    GOOD LUCK, Blake !!!
