April Coach of the Month: DeShea Blake

  1. Updates

DeShea Blake is Playworks Durham’s April Coach of the Month. Shea is a second-year coach at Eno Valley Elementary School.

Coach Blake is doing a great job with his program and has pushed through the tough Spring days! He has stepped up as a leader at his school and with his fellow coaches.  He has been dedicated and committed to teaching his kids good sporting behavior on and off the court–especially during the basketball and volleyball seasons!

He recently took a group of kids to Duke with the 5th Grade Scholars Project and was a great role model and leader throughout the entire day.  All of the students at Eno Valley brag constantly about Coach Blake!

For all of your hard work and dedication to the Eno Valley Community, we salute you COACH BLAKE, our April Coach of the Month with a “Pop-Yo-Collar” CLAP!
