  • Player Bio

    Pat came out of nowhere in 1992 to win the U.S. Open with Team Side Out, filling in for a missing Tom Leitner. Pat is strong with both clock and counter spin, and is as fast as anyone when it comes to spinning catches.

    Pat’s game is based on his versatility, agility, and quickness. He has implemented skidrow technology, neuronics, body spins, and a variety of big air catches to create a dynamic and technically strong repertoire of combinations.

    Filling in for Tommy Leitner and winning the U.S. Open in 1992 with Team Side Out, and competing in Paganello 2002 and the 2003 FPA Worlds- Rimini, Italy

  • How I Started

    My highschool wrestling teamate, Rico Schneider, gave me my first set of prosthetic nails and told me to go and checkout the 1986 Sky of 10,000 Frisbees FPA Worlds tournament. To say the least I was blown away, and have had the bug ever since.
