Darvis “Doc” Darell Patton is a retired American track and field athlete who competed in sprinting events. He is a two-time U.S. Champion in the 200-meter dash and won the silver medal in the event at the 2003 World Championships. He is a three-time Olympian and a four-time participant at the World Championships. 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.
