With Super Bowl LV approaching, it’s easy to get excited with what will unfold and also nostalgic with what’s transpired. Among the stories of the game is the tale of age. A year ago, Patrick Mahomes was handed the Pete Rozelle Trophy as the youngest Super Bowl MVP at age 24.
At 43, Tom Brady is the oldest quarterback to reach the Super Bowl, which was also true when he reached the championship game at 40 and 41.
How about when both players were in their youth? Let’s begin with Mahomes and see his early success in high school and college. Thanks to Wesley Duggar, a Davidson College football player, for his work on this graphic.
