Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, a native of Tyler, Texas, and the son of Major League Baseball player Pat Mahomes, was noted for his Christian beliefs from an early age.
Randi Martin, Patrick’s mother, told TheMix.Net in an interview last September that her son began his spiritual journey while being active in a youth group in middle school.
“He got saved. There was a night at church, he had his hands raised to the Lord and he was singing,” Martin said. “I just felt overcome with this most awesome moment, more than any football game, because I knew where his heart truly is.”
On Twitter, Mahomes has often credited God with his success, including back in February 2019 when he won the Most Valuable Player award at the NFL Honors ceremony.
“Man this is crazy! God is amazing! Thank you to everyone who has supported me and helped me get here! #ChiefsKindgom thank you for your passion but this is just the beginning,” he tweeted at the time.
