COLUMBIANA OH- For a head coach, what are some types of players you want on your squad? Some strong arms on the mound? Sure. Couple of power bats to add some runs? No doubt! How about someone that is capable of giving you both, plus is willing to play strong defense at any of the 9 available positions! Look no further, Carter Blakeman is your man! The Crestview Rebels senior has gone into his senior season with the idea of leading by example. By playing any defensive position asked of him, he has exemplified what it means to be a great teammate.
However, make no mistake about it. His versatility on the defensive side of the ball does NOT make him a liability with a bat in his hands. A hitter that has more than carried his weight on the team throughout his Crestview career. Putting together one spectacular career with The Rebels that is going to continue for 4 more years; starting next season. Cuyahoga Community College made plans to make Blakeman a part of their roster for the foreseeable future.
The three-horned attack of this Triceratops’ hitting, fielding and pitching will be on full display for Tri-C next year. Until then, you can enjoy this EXCLUSIVE player profile with the man himself! Join The Running Point crew as they venture into the life, career and future of Carter Blakeman. Only on YSN!
