KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KAKE) - Lots of dreams have come true over the last two nights for guys who've always dreamed of playing in the NFL.

But, perhaps no story is greater than that of the hometown kid who will soon play for the team he's always rooted for. Felix Anudike-Uzomah, the defensive end The Chiefs picked in the first round.

Friday, he showed how valuable he's going to be not just on, but off the field for Kansas City.

The KC native, K-State Wildcat, and now Kansas City Chief, Felix didn't waste a second to start giving back to his community and making lots of kids happy.

“It's a surreal experience. Been growing up for 18 years just following the Chiefs. Even went to their games. Went to five games here,” said Felix Anudike-Uzomah.

And that surreal experience began for Felix Anudike-Uzomah late Thursday night.

One of the first things he did after getting drafted, was go to Children's Mercy. So, he could spend time with kids and their families because Children's Mercy is close to his heart.

“I was once a patient here at Children's Mercy too. There's no stranger to me. Just being very close is been a blessing god has given me. Just to be close, go to K-State. Have the draft in KC, and get drafted in KC. Go to the Kansas City Chiefs literally in KC, which is honestly wild,” said Anudike-Uzomah.

Wild could be an understatement. Anudike-Uzomah is the only first-round draft pick from K-State in 14 years. His family was confident he would get drafted into the NFL.

And, with 32 NFL teams, he knew his chances of staying in his hometown were slim.

“After the Super Bowl, I said dang, this is my last time being a Chiefs fan. And my mom said what if you be a Chief,” said Anudike-Uzomah.

And, Felix says he couldn't imagine spending his first full day as a Chief any other way.

“I'm just happy to be here at Children's Mercy just to share that experience with the kids too. I'm running on three hours of sleep, and I was like honestly it doesn't even matter. If I just go here and make a smile on a kid's face it'll bring joy to me the whole time,” said Anudike-Uzomah.

Felix couldn't express enough how blessed he was that all of his dreams came true right in the area where he is from.
