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.
