Mahomes to Texas Tech grads: ‘Win your own Super Bowl’

Super Bowl-winning quarterback Patrick Mahomes addressed graduates of his alma mater, Texas Tech, on Saturday, encouraging them to “go out and win your own Super Bowl.””I know this isn’t the graduation ceremony that you and your families had envisioned, but that doesn’t change the outcome or all the hard work, long hours and sacrifices that you made to achieve this milestone,” the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback said in his address that aired during the school’s virtual commencement. “I know this is sure not how you imagined spending your last days as a student.”The ceremony was held online because of the coronavirus pandemic.Mahomes continued in his statement, which lasted about 75 seconds, saying:”But the world is in a different place today than it was just a few weeks ago. And as Red Raiders, we’re built to persevere in difficult times. We’ve all had to take a moment and learn to adjust to these new challenges. And when the odds are stacked against us, we make a play — and I can tell you this is going to make us all more competitive and hungrier than ever.
