2002 National AFL Draft Pick . 38
2007 NAB AFL Draft Pick No. 72
Recruited by the Kangaroos with their third pick in 2002 National Draft (38th overall), Blake is originally from East Burwood and showed plenty of promise in his junior years as a ball winning midfielder.
Consecutive injuries to his shoulder and hamstring have limited the amount of time Blake has had in the seniors over the last 4 seasons with the Kangaroos. However in 2007, Blake showed the football world that he was very capable of moulding into a talented midfielder. He played in 7 consecutive matches, averaging 15 disposals and showed lots of promise as an emerging midfielder. His precise kick and brilliant decision making were the key attributes in those games.
In 2008, Blake will be looking for an injury free year with the hope of playing more senior games for the Kangaroos.
