Patterson has been honored three times as Maryland Sportscaster of the Year, numerous times by the Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association, and in 1979 with the prestigious Eclipse Award for his coverage of thoroughbred racing in Maryland.

What People are Saying About This

from the Foreword by Raymond Berry

It was July 1955 when I reported to the Baltimore Colts training camp for my first year in professional football. There was no way I could know what the coming years were going to bring. None of us—players, coaches, owner Carroll Rosenbloom, the people of Baltimore and Maryland—none of us realized we were all going to experience a rare and unforgettable era, and we were going to experience it together.
