Quannie Blake showed that he is a premier wrestler, taking third place in the 152-pound class at Salem last Friday.
He also showed that he’s a lot more than a heckuva wrestler: He’s a heckuva man.
It’s a wonder to me that Quannie was even able to make it to Salem. You see, his mother, Joyce Ann Blake, passed away on Tuesday. She was but 52 years old.
Quannie, but 17 years old, was left to deal with such a major loss in his life.
