Graduated with a psychology degree from Manchester University in 2018. Blake is a 2-Time Heartland Conference Champ and a National Qualifier in cross country. He'd like to run a decent marathon before long. Doesn’t do much other than run, hang with friends and listen to The 1975. So pretty much a cliche millennial.
