Fox 4: Metro man honored to get coveted Arrowhead seat after 50+ years of devotion to Chiefs

By Rebecca Gannon

With less than 24 hours before the Chiefs face the Titans in the AFC Championship game, there are still seats available; tickets range from $200- $2,000.

But there's one that's already taken. Paul Cherry will be sitting in the Lamar Hunt Legacy Seat on Sunday, with his daughter by his side.

Paul Cherry became a season ticket holder for the chiefs 53 years ago, when he was 11 years old. He became the youngest ever Red Coater at Arrowhead at 18. He's the longest running one, too - he's worn the coat for 44 years.

He is proud of all the pins that adorn his red suit jacket. In addition to his full time job with Children's Mercy, he's volunteered thousands of hours to the Chiefs' program's many charities, many of which were established by Chiefs players.
