They Said It ...
Patrick McDonald: “This is a great opportunity for me to develop as a person and player. The environment with Indy Eleven has been great so far and I’m excited for the rest of the season.”
Coach Rennie on McDonald: “Patrick’s a left-footed player who plays mostly out of the wingback position, and he brings something different because of that ability to play on the left. He suits our style of play and our system and has a lot of potential. We’re excited to have him coming from North Carolina to Indiana to join the club.”
