LEXINGTON — Former Marine Corporal Kevin Blanchard admits he didn’t know much about Jacob Tamme a few months ago other than he was a National Football League player.

That has dramatically changed.

“We know plenty about him now,” said Blanchard Monday during the Swings for Soldiers Classic at the University Club, a golf scramble to raise funds for Homes For Our Troops.

Blanchard and his fiancee, Myra Kahn, will be getting a new home in Crozet, Va., in part due to proceeds from this event. He said it would all be on one floor and have wider hallways that he needs.
