Patrick Mahomes’ mom, Randi Martin, is proud of her son’s NFL accomplishments so far in his young career, but it is how the Chiefs quarterback has had the success that makes her the proudest. The two things that are important to Martin are Mahomes’ faith and how he has maintained his humility despite emerging as one of the top NFL quarterbacks.
“I want him to stay humble; That means a lot to me,” Martin told KSHB 41 Kansas City. “I always encourage him to pray and to thank God for his blessings that he has and his abilities.”
Martin still lives in Texas and flies to Kansas City for every Chiefs home game to see her son work his magic on the football field, per ABC 4. Martin works as an event organizer in Tyler, Texas, per KSHB.
Fans can expect Mahomes’ mom to be in the stands in Miami as he plays in the biggest game of his career. Prior to the Super Bowl, Martin reflected on going from a family vacation in Miami to ten years later her son is playing in America’s biggest sporting event.
“Flashback to 2010 taking my boys on vacation to Miami now 10 years later we are here again with Mia and our Chiefs family!!! #blessed,” Martin tweeted.

Chiefs fans can thank Mahomes’ mom for more than just her support. It was Martin that convinced her son to give football one more chance when he was thinking about quitting the game early in high school.
“Before his junior year in high school he came to me that summer wanting to quit football, but I just said you`re going to regret it if you quit,” Martin explained to ABC 4.
Mom always knows best, and Mahomes began to thrive at Whitehouse, Texas. Mahomes would go on to lead a prolific Air Raid offense at Texas Tech before being drafted by the Chiefs.

Martin continues to emphasize that her son is living out his dream and reminds Mahomes to count the opportunity as a blessing. “It’s truly been a blessing,” Martin explained to KSHB.com. “I tell him that all the time. [It’s] a blessing that, you know, little boys dream about. He’s gotten to actually live a dream. So, you know, we take it – I take it one day at a time and try to enjoy it. It is a little overwhelming.”
