Bullard Making His Own Way

Posted Nov 15, 2011

Blake Bullard is a product of Killeen, Texas. Once his high school career was done, the talented offensive lineman elected to take the junior college route in hopes of boosting his stock as a college football prospect. Two years at Grossmont appears to have done Bullard some good as college recruiters from four year programs have begun showing interest.

"I don't have any D1 offers yet," said Blake. "I have a couple of D2 and 1-AA offers, but that's it so far.

"A few D1 schools have shown some interest, but not a lot yet. I had a call last week from Wyoming and I have gone and visited USC. I am hoping things pick up once my film gets out there."

Bullard reports that the one criticism he hears relates to his size.

"Everybody wants me to put on weight and that's been hard for me this season," said Blake. "I am supporting myself and I am out here in California with no family.

"I didn't get to eat as much as I needed to this summer because I was on my own.

"I am playing at 255 and they all want me to be about 285 to 290.

"Once I get in school somewhere and get on a good nutrition plan I will be able to put that weight on and keep it on.

"I work out and condition a lot, so it's been hard for me to gain weight on my own."

Blake reports that he believes he has what it takes to succeed on the major college level.

"I feel like my strength is my run blocking," said Bullard. "Sometimes I get my head inside in pass protection and I am working on that.

"I feel like I have a good stagger and I play real physical.

"My coach here is real technical about things, so I feel like I am sound in my technique.

"I am just working hard to get better every day and become a better player."
