The Super Bowl LIV MVP was named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people of 2020 on Tuesday.
Mahomes led the Chiefs to their first Lombardi Trophy in 50 years in February. He then signed the richest contract in sports history in July when he inked a 10-year, $503-million extension with Kansas City.
The 25-year-old's Time profile was written by MLB legend and Miami Marlins part-owner Derek Jeter.
"There is a lot of promise in Patrick Mahomes' future than just on-field accolades. He already has started to build a legacy as one of the most impactful athletes of his generation, and I, for one, am excited to see what is next," Jeter said.
