ST. LOUIS – Two St. Louis natives received league titles in back-to-back nights and they’re both named ‘Patrick.’
On Wednesday night, the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup with Oakville’s Patrick Maroon.
On Thursday night, the Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship with St. Louis’ Patrick McCaw.
"It's meant the world to me," Maroon said. "As a kid, you dream of this your whole life and to come back home and play for your team you grew up watching your whole life, and to actually live out your dream and actually put your skates on and play (in) the Stanley Cup finals, it's a pretty cool moment for me. Not only a cool moment for me, but my dad that's been a season ticket holder and Blues fan, my mom, my family, my son. It's been really cool and very special: a lot of highs, a lot of lows, but we're getting through this together," Maroon said.
McCaw secured a ‘3-peat’ in the NBA finals with the Toronto Raptors against the Warriors Thursday night.
McCaw attended Christian Brothers College High School but transferred to Montrose Christian School as a senior. He played at UNLV before getting drafted in 2016. His dad, Jeff, is the basketball coach at Trinity Catholic.
