Patrick Mahomes, through his 15 and the Mahomies Foundation, is partnering with the HBCU Legacy Bowl, which will begin play next year in New Orleans.
Mahomes announced through the foundation a multiyear commitment to the bowl, a postseason all-star game for draft-eligible prospects from historically Black colleges and universities.
