"The Pain We Fill When Someone Leaves Our Lives, is in direct proportion thet bring while a part of our lives."
They often say when a beloved sports figure passes away that "heaven need a champion."
Well, on 11-14-1970, heaven got 75 champions. Mike Blake was the 1969 heavyweight state champion (18-0) wrestling champion -- the first ever state wrestling champion from Huntington East. His picture hangs the wall at the new Huntington High School.
