Goals: 3 Assists: 8 Blocks: 1
MLU Experience: 2
Known as a steadying presence even as a rookie on the 2015 roster, Charlie Patten was a valuable veteran member of the 2016 Rumble. On a team with a lot of rookies, Patten’s solid play and strong fundamentals made up for some of the execution errors common with first year players. Patten recorded just a single drop during the 2016 season.
The 5-foot-9 handler out of Georgetown University uses his quickness and good hands to facilitate the Rumble offense, leading the team in Touches Per Offensive Possession (TPOP). Touching the disc 1.453 times per possession, Patten not only led the Rumble, but that mark was good for 6th in the league and only feel behind D.C.’s Lloyd Blake (1.460) in the Eastern Conference.
