Buck Buchanan (Buchanan) (1971)

Pat Petty

As a football player Pat was a tough as it gets. He was relentless as a pulling guard leading the Dynamo backs down the field. On the defensive side of the ball he was an undersized nose guard but that didn’t keep him from manhandling a much bigger center while stopping a charging fullback in his tracks. He played with passion and heart. He was a great teammate and friend. 

Pat committed his life to his high school sweetheart, Sharon Hudson. They were married as teenagers and remained married until Pat's death. After high school Pat built a successful construction business while raising cattle on his farm in Powells Crossroads, TN.

You can read about Pat and our teammates in my book about City’s 1970 football team, First and Thirty.

Our prayers are with Sharon and the family as Pat will surely be missed.
