In 2022, Patterson played in 11 games for the Fighting Irish and he was a focal point on the offensive line. Patterson, who is a graduate senior, played his final season at Notre Dame. He joined the program in 2018 and became one of Notre Dame’s best offensive linemen in recent history.
Notre Dame had some difficult moments this season, which included a quarterback change. Patterson and the rest of the offensive line managed to protect Drew Pyne when he replaced Tyler Buchner for the rest of the season.
While Pyne was sacked a total of 15 times this season, the offensive line had 7 games of only surrendering 1 sack or less. The offensive line also helped pave the way for Notre Dame’s effective rushing attack this season.
Patterson will wear the Notre Dame uniform for one last time in the upcoming bowl game.
