Patrick Mahomes‘ brief NFL career with the Kansas City Chiefs has seen him accomplish many impressive feats.

His dad has played a pivotal role in his football journey, which a recent touching gift demonstrated his unwavering appreciation.
Patrick Mahomes’ impressive rise to NFL stardom
Since entering the NFL, Patrick Mahomes has risen to stardom in historic fashion.
Mahomes quickly demonstrated to be the franchise cornerstone the Chiefs can build around over the next decade. In his first three years as the full-time starter, he has guided Kansas City to three AFC championship game appearances and back-to-back Super Bowl trips.
The 25-year-old is the youngest player in NFL history to have won the regular-season MVP award and Super Bowl MVP honors. Mahomes is also setting individual records at a blazing pace as he’s the fastest to reach 10,000 career passing yards and 100 career passing touchdowns.
His tremendous production is coupled with remarkable team success that has the franchise in the position to become back-to-back Super Bowl champions. Beyond that, Mahomes recently showed his father his appreciation for his contributions to his unique football journey.
Patrick Mahomes presented his dad with a touching gift
Patrick Mahomes’ journey toward NFL stardom has involved some significant influence from his father.
Patrick Mahomes Sr. helped guide his son down the path of pursuing his dream to become an NFL quarterback. According to Fox 4 in Kansas City, it has led the younger Mahomes to present his dad with a touching personal token of appreciation this past Christmas after winning his first Super Bowl.
“He gave me a ring. I have added that to the wardrobe when I go to the game. Very special. Very emotional. I’m just glad that he thought enough of me to include me in that part of me.”
The elder Mahomes has a great deal of appreciation toward his son giving him a touching gift. The relationship between the two has played a pivotal role in the 25-year-old’s ascension into NFL stardom.
The gesture speaks to how much he values his father’s presence and impact on his life. Mahomes now has another NFL legacy-defining moment in front of him this upcoming weekend.
Career-defining moment ahead in Super Bowl 55
Patrick Mahomes’ quick rise to stardom has led him to compete for his second Super Bowl win in only his third season as a starting quarterback.
Mahomes and the Chiefs have a challenging task ahead in Super Bowl 55 against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Brady’s influence on the Buccaneers played a pivotal part in transforming them into becoming a Super Bowl contending team.
The 43-year-old continues to show that he’s an ageless wonder, with his fourth Super Bowl appearance in the last five years and 10th overall. Mahomes will have the task of going up against a tough Buccaneers defense that will test him with their pass rush.
The 25-year-old has an opportunity to lift his legacy another notch with a win over the player he’s chasing to becoming the greatest quarterback in league history. It may be quite early in Mahomes’ career, but another Super Bowl win would put him above Hall of Fame talents such as Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Brett Favre, and Russell Wilson.
There is plenty on the line that could play a significant part in shaping his NFL legacy in the years ahead.
