KANSAS CITY, Mo. — He might not be able to tell Dak Prescot apart from Patrick Mahomes, but now Aaiden Diggs has signed jerseys from both of them.
Aaiden got the exciting gift from the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback on Christmas morning.
He made headlines earlier this year when he was at training camp with his dad, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs. During NFL Films’ “Hard Knocks,” someone asked Aaiden what jersey he brought with him. He held up four fingers, indicting Prescott’s number.
But when Trevon asked whose jersey that is, he replied, “Patrick Mahomes.”
That wasn’t the only time Aaiden had mixed the two NFL stars up.
Later in the series, Diggs brought his son to meet his favorite quarterback, Dak Prescott. But the 4-year-old was still a little confused.
“So you’re Patrick Mahomes?” Aaiden said.
“You think I’m Patrick Mahomes still? Whose jersey is this?” Prescott said, pointing to his Cowboys’ jersey as they all laughed.
“I mean not Patrick Mahomes; you’re Dak Prescott?” Aaiden said. “Good to see you.”
Prescott later signed a jersey for his teammate’s son and even brought him a new jersey signed by him.
“Now you can wear one and hang one up,” Prescott said. “I’m gonna sign it and I’m gonna write on it, ‘Not Patrick Mahomes’ so you remember.”
Now, Aaiden has another jersey to add to his collection. Hopefully, this doesn’t make things more confusing for him though.
“To Aaiden Diggs, keep being the star you are. Can’t wait to see you in the NFL one day,” Mahomes wrote on the Chiefs jersey.
