About Darvis
Darvis "Doc" Patton has become a staple in American sprint relays winning four World Outdoor and Olympic medals in the 4x100m in his career. One of the country’s best sprinters for more than a decade, Patton holds personal bests in the 100m of 9.89 and 20.03 in the 200m. One of the most versatile performers in TCU track & field history, Patton garnered seven All-America certificates during his senior year alone, and notched ten All-America honors in just two seasons at TCU. Patton was a late-bloomer coming out of Dallas Lake Highlands High School, where he did not make the schools relay team. He spent two years at Garden City Community College, where he was an eight-time JUCO All-American, including the 1998 NJCAA long jump champion. In 2000, he became the first TCU athlete to win an indoor conference long jump title and the first Horned Frog to win a conference long jump crown of any kind since 1970 when he won the WAC indoor title. Though he finished as the runner-up at USA Indoors, he won the outdoor championship and earned the #1 U.S. ranking in 2002 by Track & Field News. His family includes his wife Crystal and one daughter and one son. Patton is a member of the USATF Board of Directors.
