State Farm student athlete of the week Butler Senior Brendin Patrick

We are so excited to announce our first State Farm student athlete of the week from Butler, senior, Brendin Patrick. Brendin starts as running back and linebacker this year for the Bears. He was nominated by his Head Coach Gregg Webb. Last week against Clinton Brendin had 246 yards rushing on 13 carries and one punt return for 35 yards with four touch downs total in the Bears win vs the Cardinals with final score of 55-25. 

When we asked Brendin ”How does being an athlete make you a better person?” He stated “being an athlete comes with all sorts of obstacles. You have adversity and the accountability of getting all of your work done, practice to go to, overall it sets you up for being a good person.” 

When we asked him “What makes you a great team leader?” He stated, ”he is really good at cheering people on, and he likes to lead by example by giving good effort and showing others what to do.” When we asked him if he had any advice for young people wanting to become a successful athlete, he said “don’t rush through high school it goes fast! 

Also most importantly don’t compare your success with others success.” It was a pleasure talking to Brendin today! He is the son of Mike & CJ Patrick. The Bears take on Sherwood tonight at home at 7 p.m. We wish the Bears the best of luck this season!
