The Faith of Dallas Cowboys Rookie Star Dak Prescott

Over the last few months of the NFL season, Dallas Cowboys fans have been putting their faith in rookie quarterback Dak Prescott.  A picture that’s circulating around the internet may indicate that the first-year sensation may have his faith in someone else.

Twitter user Deborah Jespersen posted a photo showing Prescott surrounded by six people holding hands and deep in prayer with the caption “This is the Dak Prescott that the media isn’t showing you… so let’s make it viral! #Cowboys #Prayer #Jesus”.

Prescott has been open about his faith in the past.  In a 2014 interview with the Shreveport Times when he was a Heisman hopeful at Mississippi State, Prescott said that he wrote inspiring messages on his wristbands before games.  “I simply write ‘Faith’ on there for the faith that my mom showed me; the relationship we built from the faith we had and my faith in God.”

Dak’s mother, Peggy, had passed away a year earlier after a bout with colon cancer.

The newest superstar in the NFL – now with the league’s second-best selling jersey – has also talked about giving back to his community.  Earlier this month, he served dinner to needy families at a Salvation Army event.  He’s now drawing favorable comparisons to other faith-filled quarterbacks such as Seattle’s Russell Wilson and former NFL star Tim Tebow.
