Blake Faith
Hello!

I am Blake Faith, I am currently a Sports Reporter and work on the Sports Desk at The Daily Eastern News. I am a senior journalism major from Decatur, Illinois. I have played and loved sports all of my life so I figured the next best thing is being a sports journalist. When I am not working I like to play intramural sports, watch movies, or listen to the Jonas Brothers.
