His mom refers to him as “her crazy son” and he is. He’s crazy about the Kansas City Chiefs. From his game gear to his favorite memorabilia that he displays in his man cave, to game day preparations, Logan Salisbury definitely fits the description of a die-hard fan.

His mom refers to him as “her crazy son” and he is. He’s crazy about the Kansas City Chiefs. From his game gear to his favorite memorabilia that he displays in his man cave, to game day preparations, Logan Salisbury definitely fits the description of a die-hard fan. 

So much so that if his fiancee, Lauren Beard, would let him, Salisbury said he would outfit the entire house in honor of the Chiefs. 

“ Most of my family is from the Kansas City area, so growing up everyone learned to love the Chiefs. Doing the tomahawk chop in front of the TV or listening to Mitch Holthus call the game on the radio, supporting our Chiefs has always been very important to our family,” he said. “On game days my wardrobe only consists of Chiefs  gear. I’m covered head-to-toe in Chiefs.” 

 He shows his support any way he can, win or lose and this Sunday will be no exception. He can’t wait to watch the game with his daughter, Nora. She is learning at a young age all about football and shares her dad’s enthusiasm for the sport and the Chiefs. She’s right there with him, calling out names of her favorite players and cheering when the Chiefs make it across the line. Passing the passion for the Chiefs on to younger family members is part of the family tradition, he said. 

Although he loves being at 1 Arrowhead Drive on game day and experiencing the excitement and anticipation of being there…there’s nothing quite like it, he said. It’s like having 60,000+people that treat you like family—he is content to gather everyone around the television to watch this Sunday. 

“The anticipation for Sunday is insane. I will be watching with friends and family.  To be a part of this chiefs history is so special. After a 50-year drought, we’re back. For me, I haven’t missed a Chiefs game in 15 years or more, so after being a part of all the heartbreaks and losing seasons this means a lot to us. Having a Super Bowl caliber team year in and year out is something special. This is a testament to the front office, coaching staff and players.  To win this game would mean so much to all of Chiefs Kingdom. Coach Reid will have them ready to go and I can’t wait to cheer on THE CHIEFS!” 

Like any true fan, Salisbury has his favorites on the roster. His current top picks are Patrick Mahomes and Tyrann Mathieu. Past Chiefs would be Priest Holmes and Derrick Johnson. 

“My favorite moment as a Chiefs fan would be on April 27, 2017, when the Chiefs traded up to the 10th overall pick to draft Patrick Mahomes. It’s special because the Chiefs had not drafted a QB in the first round since 1983. He then went on to lead us back to back AFC championship games, winning one,” said Salisbury who played the offensive and defensive line in high school on the Eldon Mustang football team. 

That’s not to say there hasn’t been plenty of excitement this season with the Chiefs but in Salisbury’s world, the Mahomes moment was momentous. Getting to the Super Bowl was quite an achievement, now it’s time to repeat history and own the field on Sunday.
