Dak Prescott is a six-foot-two quarterback who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles. He was born on July 29, 1993. He has been with the Cowboys since 2016 and is currently recuperating from a double compound ankle fracture.
The youngest of three children, Prescott made a name for himself while playing for Haughton High School in Louisiana. He played football for the Buccaneers and later was redshirted as a true freshman with Mississippi State in 2011 at the NCAA level.
He finished third in SEC history in total yards and fourth in total touchdowns. As of now, Prescott holds 38 college football records. Here are a few of them:
Dak Prescott was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys four years ago in the fourth round (135th overall). The Jerry Jones-owned franchise took a bet on the youngster and drafted him as they looked for a replacement for the great Tony Romo. After impressing in pre-season and in light of Romo’s injury, the Cowboys named Prescott the starter ahead of the 2016 season.
He made his debut against the New York Giants in Week 1. However, his opening NFL game ended in defeat as Dallas lost by a 20-19 margin. But that did not stop Dak who went on to lead the Cowboys to a 13-3 record and the NFC East title in his rookie year.
They did lose to the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs but Prescott was named to the Pro Bowl and even voted the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year ahead of teammate Ezekiel Elliott, receiving 28 of 50 votes. He made his debut on the NFL Top 100 List at number 14 the following year.
The Cowboys number 4 reportedly has a net worth of $2 million as per Celebrity Net Worth. However, we suspect that they haven’t taken into account his massive $31.4 million franchise tag which was activated prior to the 2020 NFL season.
In addition to that, it is being reported that Dak earns five-times his on-field salary from his endorsement deals with Adidas, Pepsi and other brands. He earns further revenue from his licensing deals. So his net worth remains shrouded in a bit of a grey cloud.
