Blake was the No. 1 pick in the MLS SuperDraft in 2014 but only won the starting job this season.

He started 32 games and helped the Union reach the playoffs while securing six clean sheets.

Blake also became Jamaica’s starting goalkeeper this year, starting all of the Reggae Boyz’s games at the Copa America this summer.
