Blaise Robert Gammon (b. Oct. 9, 1996) is a very tall specimen who walked on to play tight end for K-State. He redshirted in 2015 and started for the White team in the 2016 spring game in the absence of Cody Small.

Gammon caught three passes for a total of 21 yards and was one of Alex Delton's preferred targets.

His father, Kendall Gammon, was a Pro Bowl long snapper who played 15 seasons in the NFL, including the final seven with the Kansas City Chiefs, and now is the current sideline reporter for the Chiefs Radio Network.

Blaise Gammon played for Blue Valley High School West under head coach Scott Wright, where he was an honorable mention all-state selection for the Jaguars by The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle after recording 300 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

Gammon earned all-metro honors as a senior from The Kansas City Star, while he was a first-team all-league pick.

He also was an all-state basketball player who averaged 15 points and nine rebounds per game.
