Jackson Mahomes Says TikTok Helped Him Blaze Path Out Of Patrick’s Shadow
Her brother is Patrick mahomes. His father is a former MLB pitcher. Even his godfather, LaTroy Hawkins, also threw in the big leagues.
Jackson mahomes – Pat’s little brother who is not a professional athlete – says living in that shadow wasn’t easy at all … and claims it was TikTok who helped him out from under it.
The youngest Mahomes said in a video on Thursday, growing up as someone who wasn’t in love with a sport like the rest of his family was SUPER hard on him.
“I loved basketball, played it for so long, but I wasn’t in love when I got the chance to go to college,” Jackson said. “So after that I was very, like, alone, upset. I didn’t know what I was going to do with my life.”
But, Jackson says, once he started creating content for TikTok … that all changed.
“Growing up, in everything I did, it was always like, ‘Oh look, that’s Patrick Mahomes’ brother,” Jackson said.
“I will never forget the first time I was at a football game or in a store when people came to me seeing me as TikTok’s Jackson and not just as Patrick Mahomes’ brother.”
Jackson is now a verified user on TikTok with almost 1 MILLION subscribers … and he’s just started a YouTube channel that already has 18,000 subscribers.
Jackson says he’s now created a clothing brand celebrating his new path … and, he has decided to call it “Unathletic”.
“I found myself the most confident when I realized it was okay not to be athletic,” he said.
