Why did you choose VCSU?
The reason I chose Valley City was because of the way I was welcomed and not just another guy coming here. I also chose it because of the small class sizes and student/teacher ratio.
Do you have a favorite class or professor?
I enjoy all of my business classes. My classes have been very 'hands on' and I feel very prepared for my career. I would have to say my favorite professor is Dr. Finger.
What is Coach Mac like?
He is a very dedicated coach and his players always come first. His #1 concern is your success in the classroom and getting a degree.
Do you have a career highlight?
It is always a highlight winning the paintbucket. My personal was being part of the two plays at Dickinson in 2011 to stop them and get the ball back to our offense to win the game.
What are your plans after graduation?
My plans are to enter the business profession in some capacity.
What does Viking Pride mean to you?
It means to me how you believe in it and how you wear you VCSU colors everywhere you go and everything you do in life.
Comments from Coach McCulloch
'Pat is a young man that came to us from the cities and made himself into football player. We got everything out of Pat. He is a great example of a young man who wanted to work to be a part of something bigger than himself. He made us a better team with his work ethic and will to be successful.'
