I’ve been working with Blake since I was 12 years old. Working with Blake made me a much better player and person. During our time, we’ve tackled mental skills and prep, helped me through my elbow surgery and recovery, and was always someone there to talk to. I’ve gotten faster, stronger, and have a great release on my shot. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to work with Blake.
