Kevin Patrick Football Cards
It's All About Collecting The U!
With over 525 player alumni and staff from the University of Miami Football program represented, I believe my Hurricanes card collection is the most expansive in existence. It includes players that have been inducted into Hall of Fames through practice squad members and those that merely committed and walked away before the season began. Also represented are head coaches, assistants, and other staff members of the program. Along with traditional football cards, I also count similar flat collectables like pocket schedules and ticket stubs.
The Card Album is my personal collection showcase. I originally designed my first website, CardMagnet.info, from scratch in Microsoft FrontPage and used tables to organize things. The site was updated regularly 2009 to 2021. I’m proud to say that I had regular viewers from around the world, and my content was frequently in the top results on Google’s web and image results. The time came to put some new tools and ideas to use, and so TheCardAlbum.com was born.
About Kevin Patrick
Kevin Patrick came from Forest Hill High School in Lake Worth, Florida, where he was a standout two-way football player at tight end and defensive end, as well as getting playing time at fullback his senior campaign. An all-around athlete, he earned two letters in track, throwing the shot put and discus.
Once at Miami, he focused his attention on playing just defensive end, and would make his defensive line coaches proud. After playing sparingly as a freshman, his 1991 sophomore year saw Kevin break into the starting lineup for 9 games, and, along with fellow sophomore, and Class of 2015 inductee Rusty Medearis, would wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks with their aggressive and relentless pursuit, as the Hurricanes won their 4th National Championship ! As a junior in 1992, he fought off a shoulder injury, missing a couple of games, but still tied for the team lead with 8 sacks, and recorded 5 tackles for loss and 18 quarterback pressures, garnering him First Team All-Big East honors.
His senior year of 1993 was one to remember as Patrick was named the Big East Defensive Player of the Year and a First Team All American by the Associated Press and Kodak. He led the Canes in sacks (10) and tackles for loss (11) and was also named All-Big East for the second consecutive season. For his career, he recorded 23 sacks, fifth all-time in school history, along with 174 tackles. Kevin graduated Miami with a degree in business administration. Patrick and his wife, Rachel have two daughters, Grace and Belle.
