Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is not only an All-Pro player; he is also an All-Pro person, as evidenced by his most recent gesture. Mahomes sent Aaiden, the son of Pro Bowl Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs, his number 15 Chiefs jersey as a Christmas gift.

The story came out during the Sunday Night Football broadcast as the Cowboys hosted the Washington Football Team. Dallas defeated Washington 56-14 as Diggs had an interception off quarterback Taylor Heineke early in the first quarter of the NFC East matchup.

SportsCenter tweeted about Aaiden's gift, which Patrick Mahomes retweeted.


Needless to say, Aaiden enjoyed the gift very much: Kansas City’s signal caller wrote a message to four-year-old Aaiden in the gift that said:

“Keep being the star you are. Can’t wait to see you in the NFL one day"

During this year’s edition of Hard Knocks, the HBO NFL show chronicled the Cowboys throughout their training camp. Even though the focus was on the team, young Aaiden was one of the breakout stars of the show. In Hard Knocks, he referenced the 2018 NFL MVP many times.

The cameras followed Trevon and Aaiden around in the third installment of the show, and Aaiden was questioned about what NFL jersey he'd brought with him to the Cowboys training camp.

I never thought I’d want to be besties for life with a 4-year-old until I watched Aaiden Diggs on #HardKnocks. Why are you holding out on giving this Godsend of a child the chance to meet you, @PatrickMahomes?!…

Aaiden answered by putting four fingers up, which would be the jersey of the 2016 AP Rookie of the Year, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. When asked whose jersey it was, his answer was Patrick Mahomes.
