The name Treverance Patt isn't well known outside of the Lafayette area, but the 5-11, 165-pound defensive back is known by coaches throughout district 5-4A. Patt began his climb to college football prospect during his sophomore year when he was inserted into the struggling secondary as a starter and made an immediate impact. Treverance has since earned the reputation as a hard hitter and fierce competitor. During Breaux Bridges recent spring scrimmage against Lafayette High; Treverance came up with a tremendous hit on a wide receiver, knocking him completely unconscious.
"I enjoy coming out and playing physical," Patt stated. "I want my opponent to know if he catches the ball, he had better have his head on the swivel because I'm going to put a lick on him."
Treverance recently received his first scholarship offer from the Ragin'Cajuns.
"Coach Brown told me he really wanted me to be part of the program," said Treverance."
"They offered me and feel I can come in and compete right away; it's great to have that first offer in hand."
Does it matter make a difference to Treverance Patt that his possible future position coach played in the NFL?
"Anytime a guy that has played in the NFL like Coach Brown talks, you are going to listen," sated Patt. "It's obvious that playing under a coach with his knowledge will help you develop the skills to play college football"
Patt attended the Cajun prospect camp on June 7th and ran 4.53 in forty.
"It wasn't the fastest time I've ran this year," he said. "I ran a 4.45 during the spring, so I know my forty times are better then what I showed. But I think overall I did well at the camp, showing them my coverage skills in the one-on-one and seven-on-seven drills."
Treverance has several other camps planned this summer; when does he want to make a decision on his college destination?
"I'm headed to Louisiana Tech's camp in Ruston next," said Pratt. "UL would like me to commit right now, but I'm not ready yet to make a decision. It may be August before I can really think about committing.
