"Casey Patterson made changes,” Coach Tyler Hildebrand said at the end of 2013. “It's hard to change, no matter what you’re talking about. But changing your body type by lifting five days a week and eating healthier is really difficult. He also changed the way he trained in the sand.”  


“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.”
