Patrick Patterson Visits Local Children’s Hospital


(h/t Mark Webb, The Herald-Dispatch)

Earlier in the week, former Wildcat great, Patrick Patterson, visited the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington, West Virginia. Naturally, everyone had overwhelmingly positive things to say about the 6-foot-9 big man. Fifteen year old patient, Skyler Miller (pictured above), had the following to say about Patterson’s visit. “You can see him being a nice guy and doing it anyway, but he’s been here and you can see there’s something about this specific hospital for him. It’s nice to go home and brag about it and say that you met Patrick Patterson, too.”  Patterson, who regularly visits charities and hospitals in the Sacramento area, had this to say about his visit.


This isn’t just because this is my hometown. I’ve gone to Ronald McDonald houses and hospitals in Sacramento, but for me to come back here because I was a patient and I’ve spent time in these rooms — in surgery, in recovery, walking the halls — I’ve been where those patients are at right now. That makes this more of an emotional state for myself.”

    The BBN sure has some great people who have played here. There are a number of them and PPat is what it’s all about. Thanks PPat for just being who you are. Your parents raised a great guy.

    Once again,
    Thanks again Mr and Mrs Patterson for a son well done.

    Could you guys check out some of the players sponsers for Huntington Prep? One of them may be giving false information.

    Wow, I can’t imagine how proud mom & dad Patterson must be of their son Patrick! So glad we got to have him as a Cat for 3 years. One of the players I would most like to meet someday.
