“Blake is a fabulous talent on the court, a great student and an even better young man,” said Nick Gehler, athletic director and head basketball coach at San Diego Miramar College. “In his two years with us, he will have not only have won a team MVP award and made back to back playoff appearances, but he will have completed 77 units with a 3.99 GPA and he is on track to earn an associates degree in Business Administration. All this while working 20 hours a week an In-N-Out. He has really left a positive impression on our program.”
As a result of his Male Student of the Year honors, Seits is automatically nominated for the California Community College Male Scholar Athlete of the Year which will be presented in the fall.
