"Patrick joined the Badgers as the top freshmen recruit in 2005 and has been
a tremendous benefit to the team in both competitive and leadership roles,"
said head coach Chris Hughes. "He pushes himself through every
practice and consistently goes beyond what I ask of him. He has a strong
spirit of achievement both in the classroom and on the field. I am excited
to see where Pat places in the conference championship this season."
