It’s absolutely my dream job to be bouncing around the grounds, bouncing around through the goals, bringing you all the live updates. It’s me to a tee for anyone that knows me really well. It’s what I’m all about. So it is the dream job and it’s something that was so important for me to go all in on this,” he enthused.

Patrick’s transition to MLS 360 represents an exciting new chapter in his career, allowing him to pursue his passion for sports broadcasting in a role that resonates deeply with his interests and talents.
