On Father’s Day, it is natural to think about great father and child moments in sports, like Michael Jordan dedicating the 1996 Finals win to his dad, or Olympic sprinter Derek Redmond’s dad helping him cross the finish line after tearing his hamstring. But, a more recent moment between NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his father after his Super Bowl victory has us feeling sentimental. Chiefs fans will surely feel the same.

Yet another amazing moment between an athlete and their dad.
In the video, Mahomes expresses his love for his father, while Mahomes’ dad is welling up with tears of joy and unable to muster up any words in an emotional embrace with his son. That just shows you how much the Super Bowl victory meant to the entire Mahomes family.
Mahomes’ father was himself a professional athlete, pitching in the MLB from 1992-2003. The younger Mahomes has credited his talent and mindset to his father, and it paid off for him last February in KC’s thrilling win over the 49ers.

We’ll see if the Chiefs are able to bring home another Super Bowl win next winter. If so, you better believe Mahomes’ dad will be right by his son’s side ready to celebrate with him.
