He’s the NFL’s young creator and 2018 MVP: revolutionizing the game both on and off the field. Since joining the adidas family and the Kansas City Chiefs as the tenth overall pick in 2017, Patrick Mahomes athleticism, innovation, speed and personality have been in the spotlight. The Texas-native has been dubbed as “the future face of the NFL,” reinventing the sport with sidearm passes and regularly dominating games and highlight reels. On the gridiron, he’s hard to miss at 6’3 and 240lbs, with a rocket for an arm that’s often disguised as a red-and-gold blur passing between linemen and into the endzone. In just two years as a pro, Mahomes’ on-field play earned him the 2018 NFL MVP Title, and ESPY’s 2019 “Best NFL Player of the Year” Award.
Touchdowns aside, Mahomes’ inspiration goes far beyond the gridiron. He regularly uses his platform to lead and influence outside the stadium and to motivate those who watch from the sidelines. The superhuman quarterback is the face behind the Mahomies foundation
, an organization dedicated to bettering the lives of children — a passion of the athlete who is regularly recognized as a family man. In his two years since joining the NFL, the quarterback’s value in football has grown beyond what he puts on the scoreboard and garnered him a reputation of respect and admiration from players and audiences throughout the nation.
