Former Kansas City Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman made a tradition out of training camp arrivals over the years, typically wearing some goofy and iconic.

In 2020, Chiefs fans missed out on the annual training camp entrance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a sad and unfortunate circumstance given Sherman’s rich history of training camp arrivals over his tenure in Kansas City. In 2019, Sherman showed up to training camp driving Chiefs fan and former NASCAR racer Clint Bowyer’s stock car. He sported a full custom Chiefs racing suit, including a sweet helmet.

It was perhaps his pièce de résistance when it comes to training camp arrivals.

In 2017, Sherman wore jorts, a leather vest and a fake mullet — which former Kansas City Royals’ first baseman Billy “Country Breakfast” Butler helped him arrange.

All the way back in 2016, he kicked off the tradition with some jean overalls with no shirt underneath and sunglasses.

With training camp beginning this week for rookies and quarterbacks, it begs the question, will anyone take up Sherman’s mantle? Training camp just won’t seem the same without Sherman having a laugh on that first day when veterans arrive at St. Joseph. It’d be fun if someone else in the locker room tried to pick up where Sherman left off. Who knows, after riding a helicopter off into the sunset for his retirement, maybe he’ll just fly into training camp and make an entrance one last time.
