Dak Prescott of the Cowboys honours his late mother during his remarks at the NFL Honors ceremony.
Dak Prescott, the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, has persevered in the face of hardship. Prescott, who was recognised as the 2022 Walter Payton Man of the Year, has experienced the pain of challenging times. From tragedy to victory, Prescott has remained devoted to one unwavering truth.His late mother, Peggy, uttered those three words as she fought Stage 4 cancer while he was a student at Mississippi State. Through his national foundation, Prescott uses the same three words to motivate numerous others.With the Cowboys, Prescott is still creating his own story. However, he is not the only character in his NFL story. The mother is the subject of the main theme, which Prescott refers to as “his why” for continuing to have an influence both on and off the field.
“When my mother received a cancer diagnosis, she told me, “All greats have a story.” Let me be your tale, please.” “asked Prescott. “She is my motivation. And with these words, my mother inspired and motivated me to be great despite the circumstances, just like she always has and always will. And I established my foundation in 2017 and gave it the three words she left my brothers and I—Faith, Fight, Finish—as a tribute to her.”
Prescott becomes the fourth member of the Cowboys to receive the honour. He joined renowned former students Jason Witten, Troy Aikman, and Roger Staubach.
Prescott’s foundation is concentrated on four key projects. These include bridging the gap between law enforcement, young people, and the communities they serve, as well as research into colon cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.Every tentpole has a unique place. In honour of his mother and his late brother Jace, who committed suicide in 2020, Prescott continues to motivate millions of others.
