Mahomes had a record breaking 2019 campaign in his first season as a starter in the NFL, and only his second year in the league. The East Texas became only the second player in NFL history to throw for more than 5,000 yards (5,097), and 50 touchdown passes in a season.
He led the Chiefs to the AFC championship game, where they fell to eventual Super Bowl champion New England 37-31 in overtime.
One other East Texan also has a chance to win an ESPY.
