Patrick Mahomes as Dani Rojas
“Football is life!”
In a perfect comparison, we would have a more central character for Mahomes to play as the NFL’s best young player, but the general casting still works well. Dani Rojas is AFC Richmond’s bright young talent, a dynamic player on the field who represents their best chances to win going forward. He’s also a passionate new face who is instantly lovable and someone who is all about the game of football.
Mahomes is even more likable than Dani (somehow) and exhibits a lot more leadership and charisma, but if there’s a “sensation” here, it’s either Rojas or the despised yet talented Tartt. And we can’t put Mahomes there.
