Have you ever wondered what your favorite Kansas City Chiefs players do in the off season? Then you’ve come to the right place! From now until the team departs for training camp in River Falls, Wisconsin, kcchiefs.com will highlight what some of your favorite members of the Red and Gold are up to. Check back often, because you just never know where the next Chiefs player will turn up!


Kansas City Chiefs LB Kawkia Mitchell knows about hard work and dedication. A prep standout at Lake Howell High School in Central Florida he eventually ended up at South Florida, where he made a name for himself based mainly on guts and guile. After two seasons with the Chiefs where Mitchell learned the nuances of the system, he’s become a respected member of the new-look Chiefs defensive unit. So, when the Chiefs recently visited the Fairfax General Motors plant in Kansas, it should have come as no surprise that Mitchell was the first to volunteer to meet some of the region’s hardest workers.


“This has been a great experience,†Mitchell said of his visit to the only plant currently manufacturing the Chevy Malibu. “I honestly never knew that so much went into making a car. It was amazing to tour the plant and meet the workers. There jobs aren’t that far removed from us football players. We each can put in a pretty long day and, when it is all said and done, we are both aiming to produce the very best product that we can.â€Â

Part of Mitchell’s duties at the plant included signing autographs, along with a pair of Chiefs Cheerleaders, for those morning shift workers who had just completed their shift and the evening workers who were just clocking in for the day.

Mitchell and the Cheerleaders also got a behind-the-scenes tour of the assembly line.

“That was very cool,†Mitchell noted. “We got to see some of the 2006 models that aren’t even on the market yet. It was kind of like sitting in the coaches meeting and getting the game plan for next week’s game.â€Â
