Patriots players become hometown heroes

From awesome parades to simple tributes, here's how some of the Super Bowl champs have been honored at home.

New England may be the adopted home for many Patriots, but that doesn't mean they've forgotten their roots. A few weeks after winning the Super Bowl, Malcolm Butler went back to Vicksburg, Miss., where he was welcomed with tons of fanfare, including a parade in his honor.

Still, the cornerback isn't the only one to get the hometown hero treatment since the big game. Here's a look at how his teammates have also been feeling the love at home.

Darius Fleming paid a visit to his Chicago high school and had a chance to speak to current students.

Fellow Chicagoan Zach Moore also returned to his roots after the Super Bowl with a visit to his college, Concordia University in St. Paul, Minn.

Patrick Chung escaped the New England winter to spend some time in California, where he stopped by his old high school in Rancho Cucamonga.

Brandon LaFell's high school in Houston, Texas, said "congrats" in a big way.

Meanwhile, LeGarrette Blount's hometown of Perry, Fla., celebrated the Super Bowl champ in style. Like Malcolm Butler, he took part in a parade and was also awarded the key to the city.
