NFL star Travis Kelce reportedly made his teammates cry while giving a pre-game speech ahead of Super Bowl LVIII.
As you know, the Kansas City Chiefs are set to take on the San Francisco 49ers at the big game in Las Vegas tonight, Sunday, February 11. As Travis has said multiple times in the past, he wants this Super Bowl ring more than he ever has, and he has been doing everything he can to prep to help his team take home that Lombardi Trophy.
In addition to practicing, Travis gathered his team together to deliver an epic pre-game speech, leaving some of his teammates in tears.
According to several reports, Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid reportedly asked Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes, and Chris Jones to address the team the night before the Super Bowl.
“Chiefs coach Andy Reid had Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Chris Jones address the team last night at the hotel. All were great. Kelce particularly so— ‘Unbelievable’ and ‘powerful’, according to people in the room, to the point where some teammates were moved to tears,” reports have stated.
While videos have not surfaced of the speech, and they may not considering the speech was made in private with just his teammates, it sounds like Travis was able to really motivate his team ahead of the big game.
According to someone in the room, who spoke with CBS Sports’ Tracy Wolfson, “It was like a WWE-type speech. That was the best and most emotional team meeting in years.”
