The Top 10 Most Influential Athletes that Will Shape the Future of Sports

Colin Cowherd: “These are overwhelmingly, with one exception, very young athletes that will be the most endorsed, most discussed, have the largest following on social media, have the biggest endorsement deals, they’ll win the most, and these people will shape sports going forward.” (Full Video Above)

Watch Colin Cowherd list the 10 athletes that will shape the future of American sports.

Patrick Mahomes

“25-year-old quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs. He has the highest passer rating ever, the highest winning percentage by any quarterback in the Super Bowl era, and he did get a break – he was coupled with probably the most creative head coach, so Andy Reid is going to let him loose. He also has a style that’s really fun to watch, and that’s matters. He’s likeable, relatable, and all about winning football. I think he will be the face of the league for a long time.”

Fernando Tatis, Jr.

“22-year-old baseball star out of a San Diego. He is a once-a-decade talent. He leads the National League in EVERYTHING. Home runs, slugging percentage, and stolen bases. He’s not a great fielder yet, but he took the Padres to their first playoff appearance in 22 years. Another reason he’s so influential is he’s so fun to watch and he’s dynamic in a sport that is starving for personalities, and he’s a big one.”
