Caitlin Clark’s incredible performance during the NCAA Women’s National Championship game has not only captured the attention of basketball fans but also garnered praise from elite athletes in the world of professional sports. Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons are among the NFL stars who have expressed their admiration for the Iowa Hawkeyes standout.

Clark’s breathtaking display included a jaw-dropping 41 points, eight assists, and six rebounds, leading her Hawkeyes to a resounding victory over South Carolina. Following her phenomenal performance, Mahomes and Parsons took to Twitter to share their awe and appreciation for the young basketball prodigy.

Both NFL stars are no strangers to accolades themselves. Mahomes boasts two NFL MVPs, two Super Bowl MVPs, and Parsons holds the title of 2021 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, as well as being a two-time All-Pro and Pro Bowler.

Caitlin Clark’s success has not gone unnoticed in the wider sports community. Recently crowned as the Naismith Player of the Year, Clark has continued to impress with her on-court prowess, drawing comparisons to the illustrious college careers of Mahomes and Parsons.

Mahomes, a former Texas Tech Red Raiders quarterback, led the Big 12 in passing yards and touchdowns twice, while Parsons, during his time at Penn State, established himself as one of the Big Ten’s top defensive players.

As Clark’s college career continues to flourish, her achievements may soon surpass those of Mahomes and Parsons, further cementing her status as a rising star in the world of basketball.
