"He has been an important part of the success that we have achieved the last couple of years, but if you were to ask him he would say none of this would be possible without his teammates. Blake is not only a great player, but he is also a great person off the field and I am glad he's getting recognized for the hard work and effort that he has put in."
Trahan was named All-American at the end of last season by ABCA (American Baseball Coaches’ Association) and by Perfect Game.
