Green a quality athlete

Henry Clay is blessed with one of the best groups of players in the state and should be preparing to compete for a championship. With much of the talk centering on Jerry Williams, Ryan Smith and Vincent Miller, Blake Green is flying under the radar.

Henry Clay is blessed with one of the best groups of players in the state and should be preparing to compete for a championship. With much of the talk centering on Jerry Williams, Ryan Smith and Vincent Miller, Blake Green is flying under the radar.

Blake Green had a good season last year for Henry Clay High (Ky.) amassing 451 yards, five touchdowns and 30 receptions. He also carried he ball 16 times for 208 yards and two touchdowns. "This past season I did well. This year I'm putting my level on high," he said.

Henry Clay went 10-3 last season and they are hoping to better that mark this year. One of the ways for that to happen is for Green to maximize his potential. "I want to keep myself healthy and be the best wide out in the state of Kentucky," he said.

The 6-foot, 160-pounder knows he has to keep getting better, but he is already displaying his strengths.

"I could improve my blocking," said Green. "But my strengths are my route running and the speed (4.45 forty) that I bring to the game," he said.

Green was recognized at the National Underclassmen Combine as one of the best players there and he also camped with a national power. "I went to NUC and I got MVP for best wide receiver," he said. "Then I went to Ohio State and did good," he said.

Green has been hearing from Louisville and Western Kentucky. There are no offers on the table, but he expects them to come along as the season progresses. Green is keeping his decision making process pretty simple.

"When a college that I want to go to offers, I'll make my college decision," he said.

Green is also a standout in the 400 meter. He was 2nd to straight years, running a 48.75 and a 48.58.
