Patrick Lynn Richardson used his size and strength to become a dominate force in both basketball and track from 1987 to 1990. As a sophomore in 1988, after being moved up from the JV team for sectionals, he contributed in the War Memorial to the varsity boys’ basketball game at the Sectional Finals. As the starting center in 1990, he led the last Mt. Morris boys’ basketball team to win the LCAA Championship. It was evident that he was one of the best basketball players around at that time, as he was named both a Livingston County All-Star and also named to the Ronald McDonald All-Star team. One of the biggest basketball games in his career came in the sectionals against Naples where he led the team with 31 points in route to victory. His accomplishments did not stop on the basketball court. In track, he is one of the best male track athletes that Mt. Morris has ever had. In 1989, he was the Section Five, Class D champion in 2 events – the High Jump and the 400 meter hurdles. He went on in 1990 to repeat as the Section Five, Class D champion in those 2 events, and was also the champion in the 100 meter hurdles as well. He still holds 3 school records in track in the High Jump at 6 feet, 6 inches and in the 100 meter hurdles with a time of 15.40 seconds. In 1989, he set a school record in Track for most points in a season with 266. In 1990, he broke his own school record by scoring 287 points, which still to this day is the school’s all-time best. He was also less than 1 second away from a 4th school record in the 400 meter hurdles. He is still involved in athletics as he serves as a minister to both coaches and athletes with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
