La Salle Hockey Captain Salutes a Friend

This past Friday, the La Salle Explorers opened their hockey season against Malvern Prep some 24 hours after the funeral for Blake Barklage, a senior at La Salle who passed away on the evening of October 30 following a sudden cardiac episode. Barklage was a student manager for the La Salle soccer team and was also a tennis player.

Danny Whittock is one of the captains of La Salle’s hockey. He is also part of the Class of 2022 and was a close friend of Blake Barklage.

Whittock was gracious to share with us about how the La Salle community came together in the wake of the tragedy. We spoke with him following Friday’s game.
