Mahomes named “Best NFL Player.”
Blog King, Mass Appeal
LOS ANGELES — Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is gonna need a bigger trophy case. He’ll also need a new pair of shoes. During Wednesday night’s ESPY ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the 23-year-old phenom took home the award for “Best NFL Player.” He even wore floral designed slippers to the event. However, ESPN blindsided everybody (including Mahomes) by making the announcement on the red carpet rather than wait until the main broadcast.
Chiefs vs Rams won “Best Game.”

Mahomes took the NFL by storm in 2018; throwing for more than 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in his first year as a starter. The Texas Tech alum also earned league MVP honors, beating out Los Angeles Rams lineman Aaron Donald, Rams halfback Todd Gurley and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.
Mahomes appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live roughly 24 hours before the ESPYs (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly) to discuss football, a bachelor party and switching over from baseball.
Congrats No. 15 on a job well done!
