KCK Preps Prospect - Blake Martin (Piper)

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

The second half of the middle LB core at Piper provides a good amount of punch.  Blake Martin finished his senior season with well over 100 tackles.  If you can get 200+ tackles from your middle LB's in a 3-4 defense you are going to be successful.

Martin was able to drop into coverage as well as blitz to contribute for the Pirates.  We had a lot of conversation in the last few days about drawing a line between personal and team success.  It is a slippery slope in a team game like football. 

No wide receiver can do much of anything without a QB.  No RB is doing much of anything without an offensive line.

So I am sure that Blake Martin will acknowledge the young men up front that gave him the freedom to contribute to one of the most prolific LB crews this city will see for quite some time.
