LEAVENWORTH, Kan. — Lillie Schenk is an art teacher at Henry Leavenworth Elementary.

Over the holiday break, she drew Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes using hundreds of names.

"This has been something I've been doing since high school where I take my Facebook friends' names and just compile them into a drawing," Schenk said. "It's something that just kind of caught on to where, now, it's every year where it's Christmas or New Year's, people are asking, 'Are you going to do the name search?'"

The Mahomes piece is done just in time for the big playoff game too.

One of Schenk's 4th grade students, Jack Puppolo said the piece could possibly bring the Chiefs luck.

"It would probably help his team win football games or give him types of luck for his football games and his career," Puppolo said.

In total, Schenk used 907 names to create the Mahomes piece.
