Writing in the magazine about Mahomes, all-star professional baseball player Derek Jeter explained that what the Super Bowl winning QB’s “play really showcases is his love of the game and the commitment he’s made to his teammates and coaches, and it’s clear that is the true foundation of his success.” (RELATED: Andy Reid Says He Will Definitely Visit The WH, Calling It ‘Quite An Honor’)
“That joy and loyalty drive his work ethic and the hours of practice and studying he puts in to be the best he can be,” he added. “It drives his ability to stay calm, steady and focused when challenges arise, whether in the middle of the biggest game or over the course of a long season. And most important, it drives his competitive fire and strong leadership qualities, which just continue to grow.”
