MARYVILLE HEAD COACH GEORGE QUARLES
"The greatest thing about Patton is he's a winner, just a very competitive, driven kid that wants to win.
"Patton is an intelligent kid who understands the game and understands what defenses are trying to do. He's an above average athlete, and combines the arm you want with the ability to keep plays alive with his legs.
"Patton's best days as a quarterback are definitely ahead of him. Some good quarterbacks have come through here but Patton's the best all-around that we've had. That's quite a statement about him."
