Jason Kelce hopes one day to have a chance to chat about football with Taylor Swift’s father Scott after it emerged the pop star’s dad also played center.
Kelce’s brother Travis met Swift Sr during his recent trip to Buenos Aires to catch the pop sensation’s show in South America.
‘He’s a huge football guy – he played college ball. I believe a year at Hawaii and then a year or two – I forget how long her was there – at Delaware,’ the Chiefs tight end revealed on the brothers’ New Heights podcast.
‘I think he was a linebacker-turned center… he’s a tall guy – about 6ft 2ins.’
Jason Kelce, who is one of the most high-profile centers in professional football, responded: ‘We’re going to have to get together and talk some center shop one day.’

The Chiefs star first met Scott Swift at dinner last Friday before they watched rearranged concert alongside each other a few days later.
The Swift family have made no secret of being fans of the Eagles – Jason Kelce’s team. But in Argentina, Scott wore a Chiefs lanyard, with Kelce joking that he got ‘Scott over to the good side‘ during dinner.
‘You’re gonna let this man’s devilishly good looks and relationship with your daughter sway you from a life of fandom, Scott?’ Jason joked. ‘This is ridiculous.’
Travis and Scott appeared to hit it off but when Swift changed the lyrics to her song ‘Karma’, to reference her new flame, the pair botched a high-five.
‘Ah Mr Swift I apologise big guy. I never miss a high-five, a big high-five guy. It’s the most electric thing you can do at an event. So sorry Mr Swift,’ Kelce said.
‘The stadium was unbelievable,’ he continued. ‘It was north of 65,000, like 70,000 – three nights in a row. It’s crazy how many sold out shows she has and these venues that she’s keeps going to.
‘I was blown away. It was an electric crowd too. For everybody who went to those shows, Taylor was on record saying it was one of her favorite places to play… Taylor absolutely ripped it. She killed it. It looked like she was having some fun up there.’
