2005: Blouin was destined to be Marquette's main goal scoring threat in 2005, but injuries set him back for most of the season. He played in just 10 games, tallying one goal and one assist for the year. He only took 18 shots on the year, down 22 from the previous season. He rebounded in the spring to record five goals in four outings to reflect his goal scoring skills.
2004: Blouin improved his offensive numbers from his strong freshman season and finished his sophomore season as Marquette's second leading scorer. Blouin scored the game winning goal in the 77th minute in a win at no. 11 USF on Oct. 23. In a win at Wright State (Oct. 29), Blouin also scored the game winner that came in the first half. After the first month of the season, Blouin only had one assist to his credit. In October, however, he scored points in eight of the final 10 games of the season. Blouin went on a streak where he scored goals in six of seven games including four-straight games.
2003: Blouin was Marquette's most active offensive freshman. His four goals on the season was the third-best total on the team. He played in all 18 matches on the season, earning 10 starts. He made his collegiate debut against Denver (Aug. 29) and scored his first career goal against DePaul (Sept. 10). He followed up the DePaul tally with a mark against Evansville (Sept. 13). His two other goals on the year were also of the back-to-back variety, as he scored Marquette's goal against Wisconsin (Oct. 15) and added a tally against East Carolina (Oct. 18).
