MOST NOTABLE

  • Won the 2013 FIVB Shanghai Grand Slam, his second match with new partner Jake Gibb. “It didn’t hit me that it was tough to get to the finals,” Patterson told USA Volleyball. “Once you’re there, you expect it every time.”
  • With Gibb, named USA Volleyball’s Beach Team of the Year for 2013
  • Voted the 2013 Male Beach Volleyball Player of the Year in a public vote on the FIVB Facebook page

DID YOU KNOW

  • One of the most charismatic and energetic players in the AVP who is well-known for a suave hawk and shouting “Boom”, which he shaved into his head for the 2013 FIVB Gland Slam. “I always play with passion and fire because I was not born with natural athletic ability,” Patterson told AVP.com. “Just great hair and great hand-eye coordination.”
  • Partner with Jake Gibb (2013-2014); Ryan Doherty (2012-2013); Brad Keenan (2011-12); Kevin Wong (2010-11); Ty Loomis (2009-10)
  • Partnership with Gibb began at the beginning of the 2013 season when both players were left without partners for the first tournament of the year. “I really had my choice of almost anyone and Casey had just started doing some really great things on the AVP tour,” Gibb told AVP.com. “I took a leap of faith.” At the first AVP event, they finished fourth but since then finished first in the next four (Cincinnati, Atlantic City, St. Petersburg, Santa Barbara)
  • 2013 AVP Best Offensive Player
  • Led the 2013 AVP Tour in both kills per game (8.05) and hitting percentage (.475)
  • In 2013, Patterson and Gibb advanced to four semifinals on the 2013 FIVB Tour
  • Finished the 2013 AVP Tour as the fourth-ranked, highest of all U.S teams
  • Only team to advance to seven semifinals as the top-ranked team on the 2013 AVP Tour
  • While partnered with Ryan Doherty in 2012, the duo participated in two AVP events, one NVL tournament and seven Jose Cuervo events where they won twice and had three other podium finishes
  • Named MVP in the 2010 Puerto Rican indoor league
  • Competed in the indoor Swedish Elite Professional League as an outside hitter for the Falkenberg professional team, and led team to the finals where they won the gold medal
  • Graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in recreational management… led the Cougars to a National Championship in 2004
  • Enjoys playing the guitar, singing and drawing… Would be a personal trainer or volleyball coach at a university if not a pro beach volleyball player
  • Married wife, Lexi, in 2005 and has two sons, Cash and Guy

THE BIG BLURB

To punch the ticket to the championship match of the 2013 World Series of Beach Volleyball, all Patterson and Gibb had to do was defeat their compatriots, Olympians Phil Dalhausser and Sean Rosenthal. “I would say that was the biggest match of the weekend for us and I’m very happy with the results,” Gibb said. “I feel we’re an equal team to them. They’re great but we are, too.”  

THE QUOTE

“When you have a dream, you have to better every aspect of your life to achieve it and be truly successful,” Patterson told Oakley. “Bettering your whole self will allow you to accelerate progress.”
