PATRICK ON SUMMER GOALS:

The big thing is coming out of spring and going into team camp. We learn a lot about our team at team camp going against other people that we don’t see. Several different styles of offenses. We have seven practices where we get a chance to figure some things out. The rest of the month is a rest month. And then when we start back in July, we want to get back into shape and we want to continue to get as strong, fast and explosive as we can. At the same time we’re doing that, we want to work on some individual skill development and some cohesiveness with our team as we go into fall camp.”
