Red Wolves Sign Forward Blake Frischknecht

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

Chattanooga Red Wolves SC has signed former Las Vegas Lights FC forward Blake Frischknecht to its 2021 roster, pending league and federation approval.

The 25-year-old comes to the Red Wolves with four years of USL Championship and collegiate soccer experience. Frischknecht began his career at Brigham Young University before taking two years off in Bahia Blanca, Argentina. Upon returning home,

Blake transferred to Utah Valley University where he completed his collegiate career. Frischknecht then joined the professional ranks with Las Vegas Lights FC, for which he recorded three goals and three assists in 10 appearances during the shortener 2020 USL Championship season.

“I’m super excited to join the Red Wolves. I’ve always admired the organization from afar and have been able to see what they’ve built out here in Chattanooga,” said Frischknecht. “I’m very excited to join the group and get to work.”

“I think I can speak for the team, coaching staff, the front office, and the city of Chattanooga, that we want to win the league. That is why we’re all here and I think we all know and believe that is a real possibility and that’s our expectation to perform at a high level and to compete for a championship.”

Red Wolves GM & President Sean McDaniel has had his eye on Blake for quite some time.

“Blake was brought in because we know he is a proven goalscorer and this is something that we’ve needed for the team really since our beginning,” said McDaniel. “To get someone who is able to finish consistently for us was important to Coach [Jimmy] Obleda and I when we started putting the roster together as soon as the season ended last year. We wanted Blake early, we’ve
wanted him for quite some time. We’re very happy to be able to land him now.”

The Red Wolves are looking forward to the consistency Frischknecht brings to the field. He joins newcomers Jorge Luna, Rafa Mentzingen, Josue Espana, Jose Carrera Garcia, Jimmie Villalobos, Jackson Dieterich, Jonathan Esparza, Sebastian Mora-Mora and returners Ualefi Dos Reis, Ami Pineda, Ronaldo Pineda, Marky Hernandez, Ricky Ruiz, Jonathan Ricketts, Jason Ramos and Tim Trilk.
