"Pat Doney is an extraordinary talent. He combines a wonderful work ethic with a magnificent personal touch. Working side by side with him at the 2014 Sochi Olympics gave me a bird's eye view into the character of the man. His passion for mentoring was evident and now he will be able to display his love for teaching at his Sportscaster Camp. There is no doubt in my mind that this exciting, interactive program will be the rage of the Metroplex!"

-- Bruce Beck, NBC New York sports anchor

"It is so inspiring watching Pat develop from my intern twenty years ago into an elite reporter and anchor whose storytelling is second to none in the industry." 

-- Curt Sandoval, ABC Los Angeles sports anchor/reporter
