Following a tour in the U.S. Army, he returned to the Hilltop to study law, graduating in 1977. While in law school, Pat served as volunteer president of HOYAS Unlimited, and subsequently authored a landmark proposal to overhaul the structure of the athletic fund raising and to position the organization for dramatic future growth. In addition, he helped to coach Georgetown's varsity lacrosse team. He was inducted into the Georgetown Athletic Hall of Fame in 1994.

Pat has served as an officer of the National Lacrosse Foundation in Baltimore and was deeply involved in the strategic planning process that transformed the organization into the national governing body for the sport (U.S. Lacrosse).
