KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A viral video on Facebook involving Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes has nothing to do with football and everything to do with his plans this offseason. 

For 17-year-old CeeCee Campbell, she wants to spend her most magical night of high school with "Magic" Mahomes. 

"Basically I did a promposal to our quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, AKA my man," said CeeCee Campbell, a senior at Raymore-Peculiar High School.

Campbell was born with arthrogryposis, a disease that affects her joints, leaving her with limited mobility. But her disability isn't keeping Campbell from living her best life.  

"I've always thought like, this isn't a disability to me, this is just my life," Campbell said. 

On Monday, she posted a video to Facebook that has since gone viral. In the video, Campbell asks if Mahomes will have any free time this April. 

"Hopefully Patrick can go because it's in April and it's like the offseason, so don't worry, I've got it all planned out," Campbell said. 

Since the video was posted, it's been viewed more than 36,000 times and has nearly 1,000 shares. 

Mahomes first caught Campbell's attention last season when he was the back-up quarterback to Alex Smith. Since then, Campbell hasn't missed a Chiefs game. 

Campbell wanted nothing more than for "Showtime" Mahomes to watch her video. On Wednesday, Mahomes addressed it after practice. 

"Yeah, I saw the video. My mom actually sent it to me, and I saw it and it's awesome to see her and all the things that she's done throughout the community and in the classroom," Mahomes said. "We'll see whenever April comes around if we can make it happen." 

The Raymore-Peculiar High School prom is April 6. If Mahomes can't make it, Campbell said her second and third runner-ups would be country music singer Kane Brown and actor Jesse Williams from "Grey's Anatomy."
