Kansas City Chief’s quarterback Patrick Mahomes is now a Super Bowl champion and MVP after his leading his team to a thrilling fourth quarter comeback.
Just last week Mahomes, a devout Christian, was blasted on social media by Black Lives Matters activists for tweets from when he was in high school.
A teenage Mahomes tweeted in support of police back in 2011.
Per TMN, the 24-year-old devout Christian quarterback led his team to the Super Bowl this year. The Chiefs will face off against the 49ers on Sunday, February 2nd. And so this is rightfully the young Kansas City Chiefs superstar QB’s time to shine.
But his haters aren’t having. They scoured through Mahomes’ old tweets to find anything he might have said that could be used to tarnish his squeaky clean image. They want a target on the outspoken Christian quarterback, not a spotlight.
While a football standout at Whitehouse High School in Texas, a young Patrick Mahomes tweeted that people should stop resisting arrest and assaulting cops.
Adding to Leftist furor, the quarterback also tweeted that while Trayvon Martin’s death was a tragedy, there wasn’t any crime committed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
The jury ultimately agreed with Mahomes and acquitted Zimmerman. So Patrick Mahomes’ tweet was correct.

These simple and rational tweets from Mahomes’ high school days were enough to make people turn on him. Some Black Lives Matter activists now believe the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, who is the reigning MVP and bi-racial, is unworthy of their support.
patrick mahomes supports george zimmerman in case you were deciding who to root for in the super bowl.

Per Heavy, in his first year as the Chiefs starting quarterback, Patrick Mahomes has accomplished a lot, but it is his Christian faith that makes his family proud. Mahomes mother, Randi Martin, spoke with IN Magazine about Mahomes’ faith back in 2016 when Mahomes was playing at Texas Tech.
“In middle school, he got real involved with his youth group,” Randi told IN Magazine. “He got saved. There was a night at church, he had his hands raised to the Lord and he was singing. I just felt overcome with this most awesome moment, more than any football game, because I knew where his heart truly is.
Per TCO, Super bowl champion Patrick Mahomes is not your average NFL star.
Mahomes is a man of Christian faith who spends a lot of his free time helping charities, including one that helps homeless veterans.
Per Beliefnet, Patrick Mahomes is a man of faith.
Mahomes has relied on God throughout his football career and isn’t afraid to share Christ with others.
His family couldn’t be prouder of his faith in Christ!
When Mahomes was playing at Texas Tech, his mother was interviewed by IN Magazine. At the time, she talked about her son’s strong faith in God.
“In middle school, he got real involved with his youth group,” Randi told IN Magazine. “He got saved. There was a night at church, he had his hands raised to the Lord and he was singing. I just felt overcome with this most awesome moment, more than any football game, because I knew where his heart truly is.”
Mahomes used social media as a platform to share his faith with his Twitter followers.
God is good! #blessed

He has also used his social media to encourage prayer for teammates. Following former Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith’s season-ending injury, he called on his fans to pray for him in a special way.
Prayers for my guy man! You will bounce back!

As Mahomes has gained attention and notoriety, his mother continues to encourage him to trust in God and his faith in Him.
“I want him to stay humble; That means a lot to me,” Martin shared in an interview with KSHB Kansas City. “I always encourage him to pray and to thank God for his blessings that he has and his abilities.”
Per Fox News “In the fall of last year, the foundation held its inaugural gala, raising a total of $225,000 for 15 different Kansas City youth programs,” reported Lahren.
“But he wasn’t done yet,” she added. “Besides his youth charity work, Mahomes works with veterans’ groups to give back to those who have fought and sacrificed, protecting and defending our country.”
Mahomes volunteered with Veterans Community Project, which is an organization based in Kansas City that supports homeless veterans. The Texas native reportedly helped build more than a dozen tiny homes for needy vets in 2018.
“He doesn’t just donate money either. He isn’t afraid to get out there and get his hands dirty — building transitional homes for our nation’s veterans, struggling to get back on their feet.”
“They give so much for us to be able to be where we are and be able to live the life that we live,” said Mahomes in October 2018 in a video posted to Twitter. “For us to give back to them and give them somewhere where they can come back home and have a stable home and have a stable place for them to stay and live life is something that makes the least of what we could do for them.”
“There are so many athletes, celebrities, politicians and public figures out there running their mouths, doing drugs, breaking the law and using their money and fame as an excuse and a pass,” said Lahren. “So it’s so refreshing to see a guy like Mahomes, who’s not only an amazing and gifted athlete but a truly decent and generous human being.”
“We need more men out there like Patrick Mahomes,” she concluded.
Meanwhile, Mahomes’ teammate Kansas City defense end Frank Clark, also now a Super Bowl champion, attended a press conference last Friday wearing a sweatshirt that has an image of President Trump with Kanye West.
Clark said the sweatshirt was given to him by a friend and called Trump meeting West a “very historical” moment.
After answering questions about his fashion, Clark talked with reporters about he feels his team matches up with the 49ers and how he tries to stay “at a simmer” to be ready for the Super Bowl without peaking early.
Twitter users were quick to point out the daring fashion choice of Clark.
Frank Clark was asked to explain his sweatshirt depicting the day Donald Trump and Kanye West first met: “Never forget. We’ll never forget that important moment in our history.” …and yes, Frank let out a very healthy laugh with his response. pic.twitter.com/kmlOmFE0yl
