Quotes from Moon coach Mitch Barcaskey: "Patrick has come a long way in the last few years. He's matured into a well-rounded wrestler. He's good in every phase of wrestling, but he's not where he wants to be. He needs to become more dominant to take the next step. He just needs to keep working hard."
