"I don't know tons about Louisville. I know it's a really good program, but I'm really excited to go up there this summer." explained Patton.
He went on to say, "I like Navy. I've talked to coach a couple of times. I know it's a great school academically. I love the benefits and my grandfather taught there so I know a lot from him."
A local school after Patton is Vanderbilt. Patton commented, "I really like them too. I'm going to there senior camp this summer and we'll see how that goes and if I could play in the SEC that would be huge for me."
Education will play a vital role in Patton's choice. He explained, "Not only a good football program, but more importantly a great academic school that will prepare me for the rest of my life."
When asked what makes him a good player, he responded, "My ability to read plays quickly, get in the holes and deliver a big hit."
Patton thinks Blackman should have a good season in 2008. He said, "I think we are going to be very good. I can definitely see us winning the region. Smyrna is going to be tough competition, but I think we're going to be very good this year."
