INDEPENDENCE, Mo. – As the Kansas City Chiefs football team continues to do well, businesses in the area also are benefitting. 

One Independence graphics company says T-shirt orders are through the roof. So much so, employees at Game Time Graphics came in early Tuesday morning to keep up with demand.

The company just released a new design featuring Kareem Hunt in mid-hurdle. The Chiefs running back has made the leap his signature move after jumping over defenders in two games. The Chiefs have only lost one game all season. 

Owner of Game Time Graphics, David Curtis, said Hunt’s mother ordered more than 100 shirts for the football players at Willoughby South High School in Ohio where Hunt attended school. He paid for those players to attend the Chiefs versus Browns game in Cleveland earlier this season. 

The shirts are available in Kansas City area Walmart stores and on Amazon.com.
