Coach Maisonneuve on Collins: “Blake has great versatility. He has a high soccer IQ and the physical attributes that make him effective no matter where he plays on the field. I have watched games where Blake has started at center back, played center mid and ended the game up top. Blake captained his high school team to the state championship. He possesses good leadership qualities and is a great teammate on and off the field. We are so extremely happy to keep Blake in Columbus.”
