Dak Prescott may be universally booed by all NFL fan bases, but he is really is a good guy.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback won the 2022 Walter Payton Man of the Year award, given to a player in honor of his “outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on it.”
Fans may remember the moment it was announced because he got booed while at the Super Bowl this past February.
Many watching NBC’s Sunday Night Football game are wondering what he is wearing on his jersey while playing the New York Giants, and it is actually the patch for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
Prescott has endured significant hardships off the field as he had to deal with his mother, Peggy, dying of colon cancer in 2013. His brother, Jace, died by suicide in April 2020.
Despite missing five games during the regular season, Prescott still put up respectable numbers last year.
In the 12 games that he did play, Prescott threw for 2,860 yards and 23 touchdowns, albeit with 15 interceptions.
