I am Roosevelt Patterson Jr., a former college and pro football player. I wasn't a perfect man. I made mistakes, but I have used my mistakes to help steer other young men to a more productive lifestyle through Motivational Speaking and Athletic Mentorship.
Roosevelt Patterson Jr. is a native of Prichard, AL. He is a graduate of Vigor High School where his team won a state championship and a national championship his senior year. These championships opened the door for many college offers. He accepted a full ride scholarship to the University of Alabama (UA) under Coach Bill Curry. During his junior year at UA, his team won a national championship under Coach Gene Stallings. It was after this game that Sports Illustrated took the iconic photo of him carrying a meat pole. He was blessed with many great opportunities at every level to play football.
