Patrick is currently 15 years old and is in 9th grade. Both his parents grew up in the Pittsburgh area and as Steelers fans. He is a Pittsburgh fan and a Pittsburgh fan only (except for the NBA for obvious reasons).
Patrick doesn't always talk in the third person, but when he does, he prefers to do it on Bleacher Report.
