We are excited to have Andre Patton as a Special Guest for PurpleStride Delaware 2019!
After a successful career at Rutgers University, Wilmington’s Andre Patton has been a member of the National Football League’s (NFL) Los Angeles Chargers for the past three seasons. In high school at St. Elizabeth, he was rated Delaware's top recruit by Rivals.com, ESPN.com and 247Sports after being voted the Delaware Defensive Player of the Year by voting media and the Delaware Interscholastic Football Coaches Association. At Rutgers, Patton led the team and ranked ninth in the Big Ten in receiving touchdowns, and averaged 13.94 yards per catch his senior season. During his time in the NFL, Patton has sought to use his platform to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer and demand better on behalf of his grandfather including through assisting in legislative advocacy for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s (PanCAN) National Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day and with the NFL’s My Cleats, May Cause program.
