Kyle Patterson, a four-year starter at Saint Louis University and now a midfielder for the Los Angeles Galaxy, visited St. Louis over the Labor Day weekend. On Labor Day, Patterson visited with members of the St. Frances Cabrini eighth-grade team; he had coached many of the players with the STL United youth team a couple years back. Patterson is in his first year of professional ball, after a decorated college career at SLU, which followed several years of club ball in his native England. While meeting with the Cabrini players, he spoke to the team at half-time, then stuck around for autographs and a tee-shirt giveaway following the early-morning match.
