Van Vleet Spends Time At His Old Stomping Grounds


Rockford native Fred Van Vleet was back home during the NBA’s All-Star weekend.

Van Vleet spent time with local kids at the Patriots Gateway Center as a part of their 2017 Patriots Dream campaign.

The Toronto Raptors guard played in the Patriots Gateway Center Ambassadors basketball program when he was a youth, and is now an Honorary Co-Chair.

“I was running through here not too long ago same age as these guys,” says Van Vleet. “So it’s very important, and definitely anything I can do I will.”

Van Vleet spent Sunday night at the District Bar & Grill for an NBA All-Star game watch party in downtown Rockford.
