Cheshire High School freshman Blake Feero, 15, has been chosen to compete on the second season of the American Ninja Warrior Junior program. On Friday, the qualifying episode will be televised at 6 p.m. on NBC’s Universal Kids network.
On the show, athletes compete head-to-head on obstacle courses. Back in 2018, Feero appeared on the first season and made the top 16 out of 64 contestants. Fellow Cheshire resident Jay Lewis joined him on that program.
Three years ago, Feero placed fourth in his age group at Nationals. This year, he took fifth place in the age 15-17 division.
Feero has been training and competing both regionally and nationally for the last five years.
