Patchan Takes Bullet, Keeps On Ticking

New, comments

Defensive lineman Matt Patchan is recovering from getting shot in the shoulder. While everyone keeps saying it’s not serious, it’s a freaking bullet! In him! Seriously!

"I don't know what he was doing there or why they were there," Patchan's high school coach, Sean Callahan told the St. Petersburg Times. "I don't know all the details. I just know he went to the Brandon hospital. They left [the bullet] in. It's not serious. It's in the soft tissue."

To be fair, gun play is not new to Eastern Hillsborough County. The early enrollee is expected to fully recover before the season begins.
