The Kansas City Chiefs organization won three Kansas City Sports Commission awards Friday night during its virtual ceremony, which you can watch above or by clicking here. The awards were announced virtually instead of the usual in-person ceremony at the Downtown Kansas City Marriot due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Here are the Chiefs’ winners:

  • Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu was named sportsman of the year (17:05)
  • Chiefs general manager Brett Veach was named the executive of the year (38:50)
  • Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was named the coach of the year (48:15)

As one would expect, the 60-minute award show was Chiefs-heavy and worth the watch, but you can speed up to the times shown to hear each winner’s pre-recorded speech.
