Coeur d'Alene HS TE Chase Blakley (Coeur d'Alene, ID) will be one of the top prospects in the State of Idaho for the 2014 class and says he believes this year's team has what it takes to win yet another state championship. They've won back-to-back championships, but can this year's team make it a three-peat? And will Boise State be looking to extend an offer to the talented TE?

"I think we can win another one," he said. "We have an excellent JV team that will provide plenty of extra talent and we always play some really good teams. We're definitely going to be tested this year."

"Everyone underestimates us," he stated. "We have a lot of pressure on us to win since I don't believe any team has won three state titles in a row. Our schedule is tougher than ever this year. The first five games will get us ready for state and we will have played the best competition by the time the playoffs start."

"They call it two-a-days but we practice from 7-12," said Blakley. "I think we're looking really good right now. The O-line is solid, good receiving core, and a pretty strong D-line. I think we're going to have a really good year."

Blakley currently holds offers from Washington, Idaho, and Eastern Washington. The two other schools that are currently showing the most interest are Boise State and Washington State and the Bronco coaching staff plans on attending a few of Coeur d'Alene's games this upcoming season.

"We go down to Boise for a few games this year," he said. "They told me they'd be watching and to keep in touch. I was told that they'll get in touch with me sometime after September."

"I went over to Washington's practice last week and toured the campus," said Blakley. "I watched warm-ups, drills, and then walked over to the coaches and watched the TEs run routes...things like that. It was a lot of fun."

"I really like the school," he said. "I like the coaches, the atmosphere, and how the academics go well with football," he added.

And he went on to say that college coaches have basically told him that he's like a WR playing TE.

"Coaches say that I have good hands, good speed for my size, and a good build," he said. "I basically play WR with the way we throw the ball a lot and that's something that the coaches like to see."
