About Play for Patrick Heart Screens

Patrick was a fun loving teenager who is loved and respected by many. Patrick was a gentle giant. He was the “anti-bully” at school and stood up for those who could not. He made kids feel welcome with his smile and kindness. He was a great teammate and brought laughter and life to the locker room.

In 2014, Patrick and his Eastview teammates were playing in the Blue Ox Hockey Bantam AA Tournament in Brainerd, MN. Patrick scored the game’s first goal and collapsed moments later on the ice. First responders were unable to revive him.  It was later determined Patrick had numerous heart defects that caused his early death.

He will forever be missed but never forgotten, and his legacy will live forever through the Patrick Schoonover Foundation.  The foundation’s mission is to help provide awareness and screenings to ensure no player goes undiagnosed.
