The 3X Super Bowl winner Patrick Mahomes has dazzled the opponents and fans alike with his throwing skills on the field. And his mother Randi talks about his younger days, when this obsession started for the Kansas City Chiefs superstar.

“Everything to him was a ball”, said Randi on the ‘Got It From My Momma Podcast’. However, the pro-MLB players wanted to know the secret of Mahomes’ love with the ball and the field. “Some of the really big-name players… they would say how do you get your son to do this”, said Randi.
