East Texans have been following Patrick Mahomes since his days as a Whitehouse Wildcat. He went on to have some good years at Texas Tech leading the Red Raider offense. His time in college was impressive enough that he ended up being taken with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs and won Super Bowl LIV. Patrick received another honor over the weekend as he will be inducted into the Texas Tech Athletics Hall of Fame and the Texas Tech Football Ring of Honor.
