Jarrettsville resident Bill O'Patterson is on a roll. And it's a streak that will help his college plans for sure.
O'Patterson, 17, has racked up over $10,000 in scholarship money, thanks to his bowling prowess.
His most recent award came in the Major Division of the Bowling Proprietors Association of America Tournament in Dallas, which took place Aug. 8 through 11. He teamed up with his father, Larry, to win one of the most prestigious amateur doubles events.
While his fatherhad to settle for the satisfaction of winning, the young bowler received a $5,000 college scholarship.
O'Patterson, who will be a senior at North Harford High School this fall, hasn't yet decided which college he'll attend.
O'Patterson also won a $3,500 scholarship in the Prep Division of the Bowling Proprietors of America Association National Family tournament in 1985.
