    Dak Prescott Biography

    Last updated: February 10, 2017

    Dak Prescott is the current starting quarterback of the 2016 NFC East Division Champion Dallas Cowboys. It is not certain whether the coaching staff will allow Tony Romo to assume the starting position upon full return from injury in 2017

    In his first season, Prescott led the team to the playoffs, losing to Green Bay in a close game. He played well enough in 2016 to win NFC Offensive Player of the Year and selection to the Pro Bowl.

    Childhood and High School

    Dak Prescott, whose real name is Rayne Dakota, was born on July 29, 1993, in Sulphur, LA. He attended Haughton High School, where he played quarterback, throwing for 2,860 yards in his final season. ESPN rated Prescott at three out of five stars coming out of high school.

    Recruited by various programs, he chose Mississippi State of the SEC.


    In 2011, Prescott began playing for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. The team redshirted Prescott his first season to save his eligibility. The next year he played backup quarterback, appearing in a dozen games. He was able to pass for 194 yards with no interceptions. Most impressively, Prescott rushed for four touchdowns despite limited playing time.

    The 2013 season began as had the previous with Prescott at backup. However, the starter, Tyler Russell, suffered a concussion injury, leaving Prescott to take over. He passed for 1,940 yards and won the Liberty Bowl MVP award.  

    Prescott became a certified phenomenon in 2014. He took the Bulldogs to the number one spot in the nation for the first time in program history. He also set the school record for total offense with over 4,000 yards.

    At the conclusion of his college career at Mississippi State, Prescott was third all-time in SEC history for total offensive yards.

    The 2016 NFL Draft

    At the NFL combine, Prescott performed well with a 4.79 second 40 time. He also jumped a 32.5 inch vertical.

    The Dallas Cowboys remained committed to longtime starter Tony Romo and wanted to draft someone to fulfill the backup position. They picked Prescott in the fourth round, making him the 135th player chosen overall.

    Prescott has a four-year $2,723,39 contract with the Cowboys. This amount averages out to a salary of $680,000 per year. He also got a $383,293 signing bonus.

    The 2016 NFL Season

    In his rookie season, Prescott brought new life to the Cowboys. With Tony Romo injured, Prescott got the starting nod. He went six weeks without throwing an interception.

    Prescott passed for 3,667 yards and ran for 282 more. By season end he had amassed 23 touchdowns with only four interceptions. He led the team to a 13 win regular season.
