The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will, once again, take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully, we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2021 season.
#54 Blake Fisher, OT
Mr. Blake Fisher is an early enrollee this past spring from Avon, IN. He was recruited as a 4-star, and he has been committed to play for the Irish since his verbal back in 2019. But he has been COMMITTED to the Irish ever since then. The man has been an awesome recruiting tool for the team, being VERY active on Twitter. He has seemed more like an ND superfan than a player on his twitter account for about two years. I’ve been totally here for it, though. He is an Indiana guy recruited to the offensive line at a place that has had boss O-Lines for the last few years now. He wants to win and compete at a great level, and I think his unabashed love for his school and team was cool to see.
Restaurant That Fits
I mean of course this is the selection. Blake Fisher has been a walking and tweeting player and superfan. You have to give him the Notre Dame Athletics-centric restaurant that sits on campus just across the parking lot from Notre Dame Stadium. Blake exudes Blue and Gold, and he probably would hope to have his picture/jersey up there on the Legends wall in the near future.
After a season having 3 of the 5 2020 starting O-Linemen get drafted to the NFL with one other guy being picked up as an undrafted free agent, the offensive line is a question mark going into the 2021 season. The Irish return one starter. So that means that many guys on the roster can compete for the playing time. Blake Fisher is a four star recruit, so he might be one of those guys to come in and play tackle this season. He is already getting some credit from his work in spring practice vying for that starting Tackle position. Fisher could end up starting as a true freshman or at the very least be in the mix. But, that is what you sign up for and want to do - impact the team immediately. He has the demeanor and prior skill, he will just have to execute if and when his time soon comes on the O-Line.
