The Saints’ athletic training department has earned a number of awards under Patton's direction. He and his staff were honored as the 2007 Athletic Training Staff of the Year by the Southeastern Athletic Trainers Association. In 2006, they were honored as the Athletic Training Staff of the Year by both the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society and the National Football League Physician's Society.

Only the third head athletic trainer in club history, Patton served as an assistant athletic trainer with the Philadelphia Eagles from 1996-99 and as an assistant athletic trainer for San Francisco for the previous five years. With the 49ers, Patton was on the staff of the Super Bowl XXIX Champions. He has also served three times as an athletic trainer for the NFC squad at the Pro Bowl, including in 2007 with the Saints. With the club’s Super Bowl XLIV triumph, Patton has been a member of two World Championship athletic training staffs.

Patton earned a bachelor's degree in Sports Medicine/Exercise Science from Appalachian State University in 1990. After enrolling in graduate school at the University of South Carolina, Patton completed his master's in Sports Medicine at San Jose State in 1996. A certified athletic trainer, he is a member of the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) and the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society. The NATA recently recognized him for 25 years of membership.

Patton began his career as a graduate assistant athletic trainer at South Carolina (1990-91), as a student athletic trainer at Appalachian State (1986-90) and a summer training camp and assistant athletic trainer with the 49ers from 1988-89. During his final two years with the Eagles, Patton created the Patton Football/Athletic Training Clinic, a non-profit venture in the offseason that provided instruction in athletic training and football skills in his hometown of Gastonia, N.C.
