 Patrick Mahomes is keeping the party going!

After winning the 2023 Super Bowl alongside the Kansas City Chiefs in February, the quarterback, 27, was named the best male athlete at the 2023 ESPY Awards.

In his speech, Mahomes celebrated their rollercoaster of a season.

"It was an incredible season, many ups, many downs," he said. "I have to thank my teammates, my coaches, basically just making me look good. I'm the quarterback, i just throw the ball and they make it all work."

He also thanked his family, teammates and "the best fanbase in the world" for getting him on the stage.

"I appreciate my teammates, my coaches, the guys that are here," Mahomes continued. "I have to thank my family; BrittanyBronze and Sterling. I'm glad that all that hard work is paying off. they're making me the guy that I am, the man that I am, so I want to thank them."

"And finally, Chiefs Kingdom. Chiefs Kingdom, I truly believe, is the best fan base in the world. We're going to do this thing again, we're going to keep this thing rolling. I appreciate all y'all."

Mahomes had three nominations for the night, including a nomination in the best NFL player category and best team. His ESPY win comes after having a highly successful 2022-2023 season, where he led the NFL in passing yards (5,250), passing touchdowns (41), offensive yards (5,614), and offensive TDs (45).

After being named the NFL Most Valuable Player for his accomplishments at the 12th annual NFL Honors ceremony, he became the tenth player in NFL history to win the award multiple times. His first MVP award came during his first season as a starter in 2018.

The coveted award found Mahomes competing against Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokić, Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi and New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge, who have all had big wins in their sports this year.
