KANSAS CITY— Kansas State men's basketball head coach Jerome Tang served as the Drum Honoree before Sunday's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

At every home game, the Chiefs organization invites an honored guest – Drum Honoree – to bang the team's 8-foot-tall drum and lead the Arrowhead faithful in the Chop right before kickoff. Those selected as Drum Honorees demonstrate Kansas City Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt's best qualities, including vision, a pioneering spirit, compassion, humility and love for community.

Since the tradition was reintroduced at Arrowhead beginning in 2012, other Drum Honorees have included owner Clark Hunt, Voice of the Chiefs and K-State Athletics Hall of Fame member Mitch Holthus, Hall of Fame NFL Coach Dick Vermeil and Kansas City Royals shortstop Bobby Witt Jr.Former Chiefs quarterback Chad Henne was the first Drum Honoree of the season.
