"My name is Blake Holmes and I will be a freshman at the University of Central Arkansas in the fall of 2013. I’ve always looked at myself as being blessed throughout my life. God really has blessed me way more than I have realized. He put me in a great church growing up and gave me a wonderful and great family. I may not have a normal family but they are my family and I love them and thank God that He put me here. He gave me one of the best gifts in the world and that is the ability to play sports. Sports are my life. I’ve played baseball since I was four and basketball since I was seven. I don’t know where I would be without them. That’s where I met my good friend Mike Hairston and we played on the Phillies together. I thank God that He gave me the ability to play because they taught me a lot. Not just the sport itself but I always had great coaches that knew exactly what they are doing. They taught me a whole lot about life. God really uses people throughout your life to point you where you need to go. Some people listen some don’t but I am glad I listened."
