The Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes lost his grandma, Debbie Martin, after battling serious health conditions. She was hospitalized for the last couple of days and was placed in intensive care. Unfortunately, the noble soul departed in the presence of her wonderful daughter and the rest of the family.
Debbie was a fine lady, charming, and highly passionate about football. Not to mention, she was an avid fan of her grandson’s playing abilities and attended most of the Kansas City games. While her death continues to make headlines, an old video of her praising Patrick Mahomes has resurfaced.
Debbie Martin trusted Patrick Mahomes more than anybody
The Chiefs quarterback has come a long way to achieve the success and fame he enjoys today. One of the prominent personalities who played a role in molding this NFL star was his mother, Randi Martin, and grandmother, Debbie Martin.
While the signal-caller started throwing passes at Whitehouse High School, it was Debbie, who kept her faith and encouraged Mahomes to pursue the game seriously. During his college career, Patrick Mahomes had to make a choice between football and other sports he played. Ultimately, he decided to make a career in the NFL.
Reminiscing about the good old days, an old video of Debbie has surfaced on the internet. One can see her praising Patrick Mahomes for his humble attitude and play-calling abilities. “I can’t believe it’s all happening. He’s only 23 years old. And Kansas City’s had him a year.” Mahomes’ grandma said in an interview.
“I just wish to have more billboards as they have in Kansas City here in Tyler. Because Patrick is a bought-house kid. He hadn’t changed and will always be Patrick.” she added.
