Early life

Source: Sporty Tell

Patrick Lavon Mahomes II was born in Tyler, Texas on September 17, 1995, to Pat Mahomes, then an MLB pitcher, and Randi Mahomes. He was a football, baseball, and basketball player.

Mahomes believes that pitching practice and basketball have helped him improve as a quarterback. He was drafted in the 37th round of the 2014 MLB Draft by the Detroit Tigers, but he did not sign a contract.

Career

Mahomes led all NCAA Division I FBS players in multiple categories during his junior year, including passing yards (5,052 yards) and total touchdowns (53 touchdowns). He was selected tenth overall by the Chiefs in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Mahomes spent his rookie season as Alex Smith’s backup. After the Chiefs traded Smith to the Washington Redskins, Mahomes was named the starter in 2018. Mahomes threw for 5,097 yards, 50 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions that season. He became the only quarterback in history to throw for over 5,000 yards in both college and the NFL in the same season.

Mahomes and Peyton Manning are the only players in NFL history to have thrown 50 touchdown passes and 5,000 yards in the same season. He was named to the Pro Bowl, First-Team All-Pro, and won the NFL Offensive Player of the Year and NFL Most Valuable Player awards for his performance in his first season as a starter.

Mahomes is one of four African-American quarterbacks to win the AP MVP award, joining Lamar Jackson, Cam Newton, and Steve McNair.

Mahomes led the Chiefs to Super Bowl LIV, their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years, where they defeated the San Francisco 49ers for their first Super Bowl victory since 1970.

Following the police-involved murder of George Floyd, Mahomes, along with teammate Tyrann Mathieu and several other NFL players, released a video encouraging the NFL to condemn police brutality and violence against black people and to admit it was wrong to silence Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid for their protests during the National Anthem.

In Kansas City, Mahomes and Mathieu launched a voter registration drive. Residents were encouraged to register to vote in the 2020 Presidential Election through the project. He collaborated with the Chiefs to encourage their players to vote. He became a part of LeBron James’ Rock the Vote initiative, which encourages people to register and vote.

Mahomes was named to Time 100’s list of the most influential people in the world in 2020.
