"Patrick has done a great job on the field in the short time he has had at Princeton. He consistently does his job and consistently does his job well. He is an excellent distributor of the ball and reads the game quite well. I feel his experience in the IVY league, as well as his versatility, will transfer well on the pitch for us this summer."
This versatile young man is a Sophomore in one of the most academically challenging Universities in America. Originally from Malvern, PA Patrick has grown into a technically gifted soccer player. Patrick can easily make the adjustment from defense to midfield with his strength on and off the ball as well as the ability to make the right decision at the right time. These skills make him stand out amongst the crowd from his Princeton peers.
