Patric Young

College of Journalism and Communications
Class of 2014

Patric did more at UF than lead the basketball team to the Final Four. The SEC Defensive Player of the Year dedicated his offseason to elementary students who many people had given up on. As a CAMP Gator mentor, he showed at-risk youths a better, healthier way to live. Patric's hard work paid off. The proof: three SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year trophies (a conference first) and dozens of thank-you notes from his campers, many of whom have gone on to write new futures.
