HUNTINGTON — Patrick Patterson didn't just lend his name to a basketball camp, nor did he make a token appearance at his three-day event last week at Huntington High School.

The former Highlanders basketball star and current NBA player was hands-on during the free camp, which attracted about 300 kids, each of whom received a backpack with school supplies. Patterson was on the floor teaching, coaching and encouraging. The players and their parents said they greatly appreciated Patterson's involvement.
