Blake Coward is the current boyfriend of Sadie Robertson of Duck Dynasty and Dancing With the Stars.
Coward, 18, is a senior at Madison Academy in Alabama. He met Sadie, 17, at a softball game there and asked her out on a date. They’ve been dating for about ten months. Sadie previously dated a boy named Beau.
Coward is the starting quarterback for the school’s team, the Mustangs, and also plays on the baseball team.
Coward plans to go to Harding University in Arkansas after he graduates high school.
Sadie would also like to attend the university, studying journalism and doing something like a talk show, she told Us Weekly.
The couple has a long-distance relationship but stays in touch through video chat, messaging, and other means.
“My dad loves him, the whole family loves him. We’ve been dating for 10 months now, so he’s like a part of the family. We’re always together. When I’m in Louisiana, it’s a seven-hour drive away, and when I’m in L.A., it’s more like 32 hours,” Sadie told the magazine.
“Basically, we’re best friends. He’s a great guy who really has a heart searching for God. He’s not perfect but he strives to be, and that’s all I can ask for. He’s really good at being kind.”
Blake participates in other activities at his school, including a worship night that happens sometimes in the gym.
“It’s going to be crazy,” he said recently about the night.
Blake was also baptized earlier this year.
