Patrick Mahomes is the Person of the Year as named by The Athletic Kansas City. The site awarded Mahomes the honor just as much if not more for his role off the field as a galvanizing force among the Kansas City than for his MVP exploits on the field.
"“I feel the excitement and I feel the love that they have, not only for me but for the Kansas City Chiefs,” Mahomes said. “It’s special. This is a special place. There’s great people here, and that’s one of the reasons — probably the main reason — I love being here and love getting to play for this team.”
