DAK Prescott plays for the Dallas Cowboys who has taken the mantle of the next great Cowboy quarterback. DAK Prescott is known for his great leadership and a winning player since his days in college playing for Mississippi State.
DAK Prescott lost his mother Peggy to colon cancer in November of 2013. She showed courage and toughness throughout the entire fight against cancer, which DAK clearly took after his mother on mental toughness.
DAK showed his courage and toughness by speaking out against the National Anthem protest.
“I’d never protest during anthem, and I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so,” the QB said, according to NBC Sports. “The game of football has always brought me such a peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people — a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people that have any impact of the game. So when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away … from that. It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings a lot of people.”
“I’m all about making a chance and making a difference,” continued Prescott, but “this whole kneeling, and all of that, was all about just raising awareness, and the fact that we’re still talking about social injustice years later, I think we’ve gotten to that point. I think we’ve proved it. We know about social injustice.”
What the young NFL star wants now is action. “I’m up for taking a next step, whatever that step may be for action and not just kneeling,” he said, adding, “and you can count me in if we can find something worth the action to do so that will help fix it.”
“If they believe it’s going to make a change, and it’s making a difference, then power to them. But for me, I think it’s about [taking] action,” he explained. “It’s not about taking a knee. It’s not necessarily about standing. We can find a different place to make our country better. Obviously as I said, I’m not naïve. I’m very aware of the social injustice we have going on, but I’m about the actions we can do to fix it rather than the silent protest.”
After the owner of the Cowboys, Jerry Jones announced he will not allow his team to take a knee DAK agreed.
The policy changes nothing for Prescott. “It has no affect to me,” he said.
“I do exactly what I’m doing and what I’ve said and what I stand by. Whether I was wearing the star or not, whether I was playing for Jerry Jones, Stephen Jones or any other owner. I believe in what I believe in, and that’s that,” Prescott said.
“I’ve always believed in standing up for what I believe in, and that’s what I’m going to continue to do.”
DAK Prescott understands the kneeling protest has nothing to do with social injustice but everything to do with promoting Leftism. Therefore, DAK only wants action not virtue signaling.
DAK also runs charity for cancer after he lost his mother. He sells a clothing line that is for charity in fighting cancer with MOM written on the shirt to honor his mother.
For these reasons DAK gets the celebrity spotlight of the week for showing courage, strength, leadership, and high morals.
