Saddened by the passing of John Blake , his personality, charisma, and the ability to connect with people was amazing he always called me “EL Gato” “Big Freak” in his own way made me laugh , prayers go out to his wife Freda, and family. RIP Coach, Love you Big Freak

Shit. John Blake died. He was the head coach for my first three years at OU, and while it was a downtime for the team, he was also a legendary player for the #Sooners — and he was a real good guy. #RIP


Really sad to see that John Blake passed away. I can’t remember one time when I spoke to him that I didn’t received a genuinely enthusiastic response. Nobody say baby with more southern charm. If you judge people by how they treat you Blake was pretty awesome
