What an incredible PR move by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.
Prescott had an average year with the Cowboys (9-7) in his second season in the NFL, throwing for a little over 3,000 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. In his rookie season, he threw for over 3,500 yards and took the Cowboys to the playoffs with a 13-3 record (even though it was Tony Romo’s team and the Cowboys probably would’ve gone to the Super Bowl with Romo under center).
So what did Prescott do to try to get some of that Good JuJu back? He visited JuJu’s high school. GENIUS. America’s team meets America’s High School team.
Everyone in America knows Poly football wins (except for 2009). I bet you even everyone in Hong Kong knows Poly football wins. So it may look like Prescott is just going to Poly to speak to players and look like a good guy, but in all honesty, he needs Poly more than Poly needs him. Crazy smart move by Prescott.
Another reason why this is genius is that the Cowboys have ZERO skill position players. You know who pushes out a ridiculous amount of talented skill position players? Poly football. Prescott’s out there recruiting without really recruiting. People forget that JuJu Smith-Schuster, Desean Jackson, and Marcedes Lewis all attended Poly High School. Prescott knows if he could get those guys on his roster, he now has some firepower. The Dallas Cowboys and the “Dakrabbits” has a nice ring to it. That one’s for you Jerry Jones. You’re welcome.
Anyways, every quarterback in the NFL should have some sort of personality, and I’m glad Prescott is finally trying to find his by going to the Funkhouse. If I’ve learned anything from this move, it’s that the Dallas Cowboys will be the 2018 Super Bowl champions. Let 908 Sports be the first to say, “Congratulations.”
