Born on September 17, 1995, Patrick Lavon Mahomes II plays quarterback for the National Football League’s Kansas City Chiefs (NFL). He began his undergraduate football and baseball careers at Texas Tech as the son of former Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher Pat Mahomes. He gave up baseball after his sophomore season to concentrate entirely on football. In the 2017 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected him with the tenth overall pick. During his first season, Mahomes served as Alex Smith’s backup. After the Chiefs traded Smith to the Washington Redskins in 2018, he has designated the starter. Mahomes passed for 5,097 yards, 50 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions that season. He became the first quarterback in NFL and collegiate history to throw for more than 5,000 yards in a single season.

Patrick’s early life and career
Pat Mahomes, an MLB pitcher at the time, and Randi Martin welcomed Mahomes into the world on September 17, 1995, in Tyler, Texas. In Whitehouse, Texas, he went to Whitehouse High School. He participated in baseball, basketball, and football.

In his senior year, he pitched a no-hitter with 16 strikeouts in a baseball game. He was recognised as the 2013–2014 MaxPreps Male Athlete of the Year.
Patrick’s professional career
Most experts and scouts predicted Mahomes would be selected in the first or second round. His passes were timed at 60 mph during the throwing drills at the NFL Scouting Combine, matching Logan Thomas and Bryan Bennett for the quickest access ever measured. SI.com ranked Mahomes as the second-best quarterback, followed by ESPN in third place and NFLDraftScout.com in fourth place.
