Shea Patterson was always a fan of Michigan. Despite committing to Ole Miss out of high school and spending his first two years in Oxford, the talented quarterback had dreams of playing in the maize and blue.

Patterson got that opportunity after transferring to Michigan this spring and earned the starting job over the summer. On Saturday, he ran under the “Go Blue” banner and stepped on the field at Michigan Stadium for the first time.

And after recording his first win as the Wolverines starting quarterback, Patterson shared a special moment with his father.

The two met on the field after Michigan’s 49-0 win over Western Michigan and posed for a photo. Patterson’s father, Sean, shared the photo with a message that said “Dreams Come True.”

Patterson completed 12-of-17 passes for the Wolverines and threw three touchdown passes as Michigan improved to 1-1 on the year.

Clearly, though, none of those moments were as special to Patterson’s father as the one after the game.
