Tied to a chair at school and hit by Catholic Nuns!
His school teachers tied his LEFT ARM to the chair because back then using your left hand was not good. He was severely Dyslexic and you would have thought that was enough, but no there was one more piece of his early education that was even worse…. Catholic Nuns beat his hands black and blue three times a week every time he couldn’t speak fluent Latin. But through all the abuse “Patrick had become the best soccer player of his age in the country” and thus he ended his schooling at the tender age of fourteen to play the game he loved.
How He Changed It All
Just When Things Were Ready To Explode
A week before he was to sign professional soccer forms for English Club Chelsea Patrick was knocked down in a hit run incident that left him in hospital for 4 months fighting for his life, thus ended his professional career, before it began. He spent one year drinking and suicidal before a Coach came to his rescue and reminded a young Patrick that he should be grateful for all that he had achieved already. Eight months recovering Patrick fought back from the brink. He training through pain to reach a level of fitness that kept him playing even though it was in lower leagues. From then on he began a lifetime of learning, taking in as much education as he could.
