"When Patterson was just two years old his father, Earl, died in a car accident, leaving his mother, Brenda, to take care of their only child in Teaneck, N.J. For Brenda that meant taking on both parent roles and his mom didn't shy away from helping out her son in anything he was interested, including soccer.... Patterson decided to go to Bergen Catholic to follow in the footsteps of Alecko Eskandarian and he did just that, helping his team to a 1999 state championship and collecting numerous accolades, including two first-team all-state selections and twice being named the Bergen County Coaches Association League Player of the Year Award."

I lived in Teaneck [New Jersey] all my life which is 10 minutes from New York City so there was always something for me to do. In Charleston, it's a nice place but it's not like New York City."
