Mahomes was unable to attend to receive the honors, but his father Patrick Mahomes Sr. was there in his place.

“He wanted me to tell y’all, ‘Thanks!’ for all the support y’all have given him,” Mahomes Sr. said. “There’s not anywhere that he goes around here that he doesn’t see his jersey.”

KTBB 97.5 Sports Director Bill Coates spoke about his time covering Mahomes as a high school athlete during the ceremony and said he was one of four athletes that stood out to him as special: Earl Campbell, Reggie McNeill, Cam Newton and Mahomes.

“Pat Jr. was born, God looked down and gave him a lightning bolt for a right arm,” Coates said. “But there is more than that to the story, because it’s one thing to be gifted with that kind of ability, it’s a whole other thing to take that ability and use it.”

Mahomes was also welcomed as an honorary member of the South Tyler Rotary Club.
