With an unwavering commitment to excellence and an unmatched talent for the game, Patrick Mahomes is at the pinnacle of sports glory at the moment. The admiration of millions of fans from every corner of the globe has been showered upon him, but amongst them all, one person has been there for him from the very beginning, his mother, Randi Mahomes.
From the moment Patrick took his first steps onto the football field, Randi has been a steadfast and unwavering pillar of support. As the young quarterback grew and developed into a two-time Super Bowl champion and one of the most electrifying players in the NFL, Randi was always there.
Recently, a rare and treasured photograph has emerged from Patrick’s high school days, leaving fans around the world in awe of both the Kansas City Chiefs superstar and his ever-present pillar of strength.
A Chiefs fan page took the liberty to show the fans a glimpse of Patrick Mahomes in a Whitehouse high school football jersey. Along with his high school jersey, he has his signature smile on. His smiling mother, the ever-present figure in the Chiefs QB’s life, is in the photo too.
According to a fanpage called ‘Real Kansas City Chiefs Fans’, the photo is from one of his high school football games. As expected, the fans fell in love with the young version of their QB and the photo went viral. And most fans are of the opinion that the Super Bowl MVP looks just like his mom. Here are some fan reactions.
“Would never have recognized him,” a fan wrote in the comments section.
“Patrick looks so much like his mom,” another fan wrote.
“Looks more like his mom and younger brother looks more like dad,” a fan chimed in
“He looks like his mama,” another fan said.
“So young…!!! Still same smile,” a fan seemed awed by the photo.
“Great family!! Greatest quarterback!!” another fan wrote in the comments.
Randi was there when Mahomes lifted the Vince Lombardi trophy for the second time last month. Just like she was when he won the MaxPreps Male Athlete of the year in 2014. So, she was when he opted to forgo his last college year.
When Randi Mahomes begged her son
Patrick Mahomes went to Texas Tech after his high school. But he didn’t stay there much longer as the QB decided to give up his senior year to fast-track his way into the NFL. Randi Mahomes opened up about it when the university inducted him to the ‘Ring of Honor’.
“When he left college early, I begged him to stay. I was the one begging him to stay because, you know, being a grown-up isn’t as always fun as it looks when you’re that age,” Randi said at the time.
But he did it anyway and went to the Chiefs as a first-round draft pick in 2017. And the rest, as they say, is history. He has established himself as one of the best QBs of his generation. His mother stands proud with him, still a pillar of support.
