What's Going on at Arrowhead?
American Indian Heritage Month Game: The Kansas City Chiefs are proud to recognize American Indian Heritage Month throughout the month of November and to honor the rich and diverse cultures, traditions and histories of our community in addition to acknowledging the important contributions of native people.
As part of the day's pregame festivities, Vice Chairman Fred Thomas and Treasurer Russell Bradley from the Kickapoo Nation of Kansas will lead a traditional American Indian "Blessing of the Four Directions" in the way of their people. The blessing is meant to bring a sense of preparation and good spirit to the day. After the blessing, the Native American drum group, "The Young Bucks," will prepare the Chiefs drum for a special gathering by performing an Honor Song.
Prior to kickoff, the national anthem will be performed by Erica Bread, a member of the Kiowa and Cherokee Nations of Oklahoma and the colors will be presented by Native American Veterans of Kansas City.
Hometown Hero 1st Responder Honoree: The Chiefs will recognize Officer Dillon Powell of the St. Joseph Police Department as the Hometown Hero 1st Responder Honoree during the second quarter. Last April, Officer Powell responded to reports of a vehicle crash and, upon arrival, found an individual trapped inside a burning car that was also stuck on railroad tracks. Despite the vehicle being engulfed in flames, Officer Powell managed to break a window, unlock the door and pull the unconscious occupant to safety. His quick actions undoubtedly saved the man's life.
Salute to Service Honoree: SFC Johnathon Balcom will be recognized as the Chiefs' Salute to Service Honoree on Sunday during the third quarter. SFC Balcom is stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri as the Senior Drill Sergeant. He's served in the Army for 13 years as a Military police officer, deploying to Iraq as a driver in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2006-2007 and again from 2008-2010 as a team leader on a police transition team where he helped train Iraqi police. He was recently selected as the Fort Leonard Wood Joint Non-commissioned Officer of the Year for 2018.
DiPardo Spirit Leader: Gary Johnson, a Chiefs Red Coater and one of Sunday's American Indian Heritage Month Honorees, will serve as the DiPardo Spirit Leader in the fourth quarter.
