Best sports soundbite of the year so far!


Greg Patton

By J Bates

Boise State Men's tennis coach Greg Patton is a familiar face to sports fans. His team's matches don't draw as well as other BSU sports, but the one thing you can always count on with Greg is a good soundbite.

He's become his own best PR. Calling stations directly to promote his matches and get the media excited about a sport that doesn't excite many casual Bronco fans.

The way he does it is to just let it flow. It's stream of consciousness fun ad frivolity when the camera turns on around Patton as evidenced by this rant where he channels everything from a wedding to beating out the football team for a national championship.

Beautiful sites at the Sawtooth mountain range during the end of summer. Mt. McGowen is easily viewed not far from Stanley, at Stanley lake. The viewpoint of the whole Sawtooth range is located several miles south of Stanley. The Salmon River winds along the Highway in front of the range.
