Player Spotlight: Blake Clay C/O ’21 Athlete SIGNED Northern State University

Blake Clay is an athletic playmaker for La Serna High School in Whittier, California. Clay is also a member of a club football team known as the SoCal Playmakers.

With his season up in the air due to Covid-19, Clay made the proactive choice to play on a club team to get more experience, as well as to stay game ready.

Clay plays nearly every position on the field, with the exception of the trenches, but he does play long snapper at times.

Labeled as a true swiss-army knife, Clay can do it all for his team, and that helps open up his recruitment possibilities.

“I am able to play and excel at virtually any position on the field,” Clay said. “I spend a lot of time in the film room, and I like to study the opposing team and their tendencies.

“My football IQ is very high and I am able to adapt to the things that I see. I also have very quick reactions times and my hips are good in transition. I am able to make plays in the backfield when I need to, and I can also play the pass and play man coverage.”

Sounds like there is not much Clay cannot do!

Standing at 5’11, 170 pounds, Clay has the size to play nearly any position, and he is open to do so at the next level.

In the weight-room, Clay has a current max squat of 315 pounds and a deadlift max of 365 pounds!

Clay also has some wheels, as he has been clocked at running a 4.7 in the forty-yard-dash.

Last season, in 2019, Clay helped his high school team to a 13-1 record, and their lone loss came in the state championship, with a heart-breaking one-point loss.

With his season still up in the air, Clay is finding success on his club team, having 3 INT’s in just four games played!

Clay has a current GPA of 4.18, which is extremely impressive, and a 1250 SAT score, showing coaches that he has what it takes to be a student and an athlete.

With eleven current offers, including one from Lake Forest College, it will be interesting to see just where Clay ends up!
