Mahomes becomes youngest player to win Super Bowl MVP

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named MVP of Super Bowl LIV after throwing two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and rushing for another one earlier in a

31-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

At 24 years and 138 days old, Mahomes is the youngest MVP in Super Bowl history. Legendary running back Emmitt Smith held the previous record, winning the award at 24 years and 260 days of age while playing for the Dallas Cowboys.

Mahomes will celebrate his accomplishment at Disney World, making good on a tweet he posted in 2013:

I bet it feels amazing to be the quarterback who says "I'm going to Disney World" after winning the Super Bowl #Qbs

The Chiefs trailed the 49ers by 10 in the fourth quarter but scored three touchdowns in the final 6:13 to surge ahead and capture their first title since Super Bowl IV.

Mahomes finished his Super Bowl debut 26-for-42 for 286 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He rushed for 29 yards and a score.

Drafted 10th overall out of Texas Tech in 2017, Mahomes now has one MVP award, one Lombardi Trophy, and one Super Bowl MVP award on his resume.
