As a regional manager, Blake recruits potential coaches and manages partner relationships. Before joining Coaching Corps, he directed a middle school athletic league in Baltimore that served multiple schools working in underserved neighborhoods. Prior, when Blake finished his service in the United States Army, he began coaching middle school basketball while completing his Business Administration degree at Towson University. It was then that he realized his passion for ensuring all children have a chance to play sports regardless of their circumstances. This realization, coupled with his belief that sports are a vehicle for character development, fuels his commitment to getting as many kids as possible on the field. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his two kids and wife, reading and running.
