Patrick Mahomes, Clark Hunt give glory to God after Super Bowl victory

For the third time in five years, Patrick Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl championship and was named MVP of the game. And once again, he and his boss, Clark Hunt, gave glory to God, saying in a post-game interview on CBS that the team dealt with adversity all season as the offense struggled at times.

“It means a ton,” he said. “Just the adversity we dealt with this year and to come through. The guys never falter. I give God the glory. He challenged us to make us better. I am proud of my guys. They did awesome. Legendary.”

With three Super Bowl victories under his belt at age 28, Mahomes was asked if the Chiefs are a dynasty now. “It’s the start of one,” he said. “We are not done. We are going to celebrate tonight, but we are not done. We have a young team. We are going to keep this thing going.”

Chiefs owner Clark Hunt also mentioned God in his comments after receiving the Vince Lombardi Trophy on stage.

“First of all I want to congratulate Andy [Reid], the football team, our coaching staff on an incredible performance,” he said. “It’s been an amazing five-year run. I want to thank the Lord for giving us this opportunity. Watching today’s game, I couldn’t help but think about my parents and how proud they would be of this football team. They were the biggest Chiefs fans in the world, and they would have loved celebrating another world championship.”

After beating the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game in late January, Mahomes said in a post-game interview that “God put a lot of adversity in our way this year. And we accepted the challenge, and we’re better for it. I mean, it’s been a heck of a year. We’re not done yet. But this is a way to get there.”

Mahomes has often spoken about his faith when presented with the opportunity. “My Christian faith plays a role in everything that I do,” he said in a previous interview. “I mean, I always ask God to lead me in the right direction and let me be who I am for his name.”

Kansas City’s Super Bowl parade is scheduled for Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.
