Who do you swim for?
What is your greatest athletic achievement?
In high school, leading the Bishop McDevitt Swim Team in Harrisburg, PA to being the state champion’s in my senior year was my greatest achievement. In college, it was making the podium in 50 free at Big East Championships.
Share a weird/funny fact about yourself!
I’ve had two pet turtles named Jordan and Jammer since I was four years old. They are 17 years old now.
Have you ever been given a "tall nickname" before?
My coach calls me Big Pat.
What’s your favorite sport to play just for fun?
Volleyball, but I really enjoy spike ball too.
What's your favorite thing about being tall?
I can stand in the back of a crowd and still see things just fine.
What is your favorite thing to wear as a tall slim guy?
The original crew neck long sleeve shirt. I like it because it actually fits, unlike most big and tall clothes that are too wide and still not long enough.
