Missing football while the sports world is on hold? Dallas Cowboys fans can fill the void with some awesome throwback footage of franchise QB Dak Prescott from his days at Haughton High School (La.) in 2010.
Prescott tore it up in his senior season, throwing for 2,860 yards and 39 touchdowns while adding 951 yards and 17 touchdowns on the ground. He led Haughton to a 2010 District 1-AAAA championship before committing to Mississippi State.
He redshirted his first year in college and didn't really break out until his junior year in 2014. His final two seasons saw him throw for a combined 7,242 yards and 56 touchdowns while rushing for 1,574 yards and 24 touchdowns. He graduated as the Bulldogs' all-time leading passer, but still only went in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
It didn't take him long to out-perform that draft spot, winning Offensive Rookie of the Year and making his first Pro Bowl in 2016. Just four seasons into his pro career, Dak is already No. 6 on the Cowboys' all-time passing yard list. Unless he fails to throw for even 2,000 yards in 2020, he'll be No. 5 by this time next year. Cowboys fans have to be excited about the future of their offense.
