KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With the news of Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill being traded to the Miami Dolphins, Chiefs Kingdom is processing the end of an era.

Looking back on No. 10's time in KC, KSHB 41 has compiled a list of 10 of Hill's most memorable moments.

1. Epic end zone backflip 

In one of his most iconic moments, Hill disregarded caution for entertainment as he backflipped into the end zone to secure a touchdown during the last two minutes of the first quarter during the Nov. 29, 2020, Chiefs-Buccaneers matchup.

2. Costly pompom celebration

Trying his hand at cheerleading, fans couldn’t get enough of Hill celebrating a Jan. 16, 2022, postseason touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a cheerleader’s pompoms.

While it came with a $12,875 fine, Hill made light of the situation by asking the community to donate to the Tyreek Hill Family Foundation to raise money for supplies for those experiencing homelessness.

3. Jet Chip Wasp 

Regarded by some as the turning point of Super Bowl 54, Patrick Mahomes’ rocket to Hill, known as Jet Chip Wasp, has some fans questioning if it should be considered Hill's best play in KC.

4. Peace sign swag

With too many instances to choose from, Hill made the peace sign his go-to over the years.

However, his most memorable may be when he flashed a peace sign during the Chiefs’ stunning overtime win against the Buffalo Bills to secure hosting KC’s fourth-straight AFC title game.

5. "F— it, Tyreek down there somewhere" 

The internet would frequently joke “Tyreek down there somewhere” as a response to Mahomes always managing to find Hill way down the field.

This meme was live in action when the Chiefs opened the 2021 season against the Cleveland Browns.

7. "That boy heavy. That boy dense"

Cheesing wide during a training camp photo, a mic'd up Mahomes picked up Hill, with a grunt, and jokingly said, "That boy heavy. That boy dense," after putting him down.

8. Ready to race the fastest man in the world

Confident in his Cheetah speed, Hill has been relentless in his quest to race decorated Olympian Usain Bolt.

9. Touchdown into the tunnel

Following a 41-yard touchdown catch in the snow on Dec. 15, 2019, Hill scored and just kept running.

10. Soaking in his Super Bowl win

Taking in the moments after winning Super Bowl 54, Hill noted how special the team was, while recognizing each person would find their time to move on eventually.

"This team is so special, I wish this team could stay together for many years, but unfortunately, they can't," Hill said.
