The most ferocious animal on earth is the Wolverine. They are small, territorial and fear no one. They are skilled in the hunt, dauntless in attack and protect their own. When Patrick Ammendolia stepped onto any field, football or lacrosse, he carried with him a ferocity and determination that was obvious to both teammates and opponents alike. Pat is the true embodiment of the idea that an athlete's toughness and worth is not measured by physical stature, but through strength, heart, and depth of character.
