Patton takes care of business
Quinton Patton was in his usual comedy skit routine at Joe Aillet Stadium Tuesday afternoon.
He clowned around with former Louisiana Tech University teammates, grabbed a Shreveport television announcer’s microphone and began ad-libbing to anyone who would listen and urged a sportswriter to ask when big offensive lineman Jordan Mills was going to get his next pedicure.
Vintage Patton, to be sure.
But when instructed to go through a plethora of drills and tests on the school’s annual “Pro Day,” he was as serious and focused as a NASA engineer studying soil samples from Mars.
