Van Vleet Encourages Kids to Follow Their Dreams


Former Auburn basketball star and Toronto Raptor Fred Van Vleet pays some local kids a visit.

He visited them at the Ryan Jury Child Development Learning Center.

Van Vleet played basketball with them, took photos, and signed autographs. He says it’s important that he returns to his hometown and help others build the confidence they need to follow their dreams.

“I couldn’t imagine how much more confidence I would’ve had if there was a tangible NBA player coming back into the community and telling me that I could do it,” said Van Vleet.
