PATRICK BLAKE, ST. ANNE’S BELFIELD It just as easily could not have happened at all. Perhaps the only person more excited than Patrick Blake to get on the field and play was his father, St. Anne’s-Belfield coach John Blake. Back in 2011, the younger Blake was playing quarterback and endured a series of concussions that kept him from playing football for three years. If Blake was concussion-free for three years, his doctors would clear him to do more than just be the team’s kicker. He could fully play the sport he and his family love so much. After some understandable trepidation, Patrick Blake decided to give it a go. It was a pretty special year for the senior. In his debut against Hargrave Military Academy, he threw four touchdown passes to lead the way for a 43-14 win. Blake split time with teammate Jalen Harrison at quarterback and moved around the field to various positions, including his career-long gig as the team’s kicker. Blake and the Saints won the Old Dominion Football Conference and played in the VISAA Division 2 championship game for a second straight year. It took so much for Blake to get back, but obviously it’s a payoff that every athlete dreams about when they are sidelined. Blake’s perservence is unquestionable. ✖

Best of luck to our 2015 student athletes as they embark on their college careers. Jake Allen
