Profession: NFL Quarterback
Why Famous: Mahomes is the second youngest quarterback (after Ben Roethlisberger) to win the Super Bowl. This gave the Kansas City Chiefs their first win since 1970, for which performance Mahomes was also awarded the Super Bowl MVP. His father is MLB pitcher Pat Mahomes, and the younger Mahomes had begun sport with college baseball alongside football — ultimately taking his own path after choosing to focus on football.
