The city of Whitehouse plans to honor its hometown football star, Patrick Mahomes, with his own day.

At Tuesday night’s city council meeting, a proclamation naming Feb. 2 as “Patrick Mahomes Day” will be read, according to the city’s agenda.

Mahomes is a 2014 Whitehouse High School graduate and has become a successful quarterback. He’s been with the Kansas City Chiefs since 2017. He will compete in the Super Bowl LIV on Feb. 2, the proclamation states.

The meeting is set for 6 p.m. at Whitehouse City Hall at 311 E. Main Street.

The city’s proclamation reads:

WHEREAS, Patrick originally entered the NFL as the 10th overall pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft by Kansas City; and

WHEREAS, Patrick was the first quarterback in Chiefs history to throw for 300+ yards in eight consecutive games.; and

WHEREAS, during his career, Patrick has been awarded many accolades, including National Football League’s Most Valuable Player for the 2018 season, 2019 Pro Bowl Selection, and 2018 FedEx Air Player of the year; and

WHEREAS, Patrick continues his third season as the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs; and

WHEREAS, the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick will compete in Super Bowl LIV; and

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Charles Parker, Mayor of the City of Whitehouse, Texas do hereby proclaim Sunday, February 2, 2020, to be “Patrick Mahomes Day” in the City of Whitehouse.
