EL RENO, OK  — All that could go through Blake Price’s mind at the recent SkillsUSA state contest was what didn’t go as well as planned.

He sought perfection, even while realizing that was not possible.

After eight grueling hours of body work, plastic repair, welding and written estimates, Price was awarded the gold medal at the state championship in the collision repair event.

The Yukon High School senior was competing for Canadian Valley Technology Center where he has trained inauto body technology for two years.

“I had a lot of fun,” Price, 18, said. “I was thinking about every little thing I could have done wrong, but I was happy with how I did.”
