Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott Wins NFL Man Of The Year
Cowboys Fans May Still Be Simmering And Upset About How The Season Went But I Hope Yall Appreciate The Great MAN That's Leading The Team.
I fully anticipate disgruntled Cowboys fans to leave comments under this article on social media about how much they HATE Dak Prescott for what's he done on the field and while you all are entitled to your opinion, at the very least you can admit that he's been a model citizen and role model OFF the field which is why the NFL awarded him one of the league's highest honors.
The League's most prestigious honor, the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, recognizes an NFL player for outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field.
Since being drafted in the fourth round in 2016, Prescott has developed into not only one of the NFL's top quarterbacks, but now one of the best in Cowboys franchise history. And while his on field success hasn't lead to championships, his off the field work truly deserves to honored.
Through The Work Of His FFF Foundation, Prescott Has Helped Changed The Lives Of Many People.
His Faith Fight Finish (FFF) Foundation now focuses on 4 main initiatives: colon cancer research, mental health and suicide prevention bridging the gap between law enforcement and the communities they serve and offering assistance to those facing life-challenging hardships.
In May 2022, FFF hosted The North Texas Townhall where over 250 youth participated in a meaningful dialogue with law enforcement officers. FFF sponsors police-led youth workshops at local schools and recently hosted a Community & Cops Movie Night, in partnership with Crowley ISD and the Fort Worth Police Department. Prescott's Law Enforcement Steering Committee is working to bring the CYCLE (Connecting Youth & Communities with Law Enforcement) training program to communities across the country, free of charge.
Since losing his brother to suicide, Prescott has championed those who battle mental illness by helping them to know that their lives matter.
FFF has partnered with Solomon Thomas's The Defensive Line on programs that provide suicide prevention trainings for teachers that help connect students in crisis with the resources needed. FFF also collaborated with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to spread awareness that the National Suicide Prevention Hotline changed to a 3-digit number (988) in July 2022, making it more accessible for those in need. He also continues the fight against cancer in honor of his mother.
In April 2022, he succeeded Roger Staubach as Co-Chair of the Children's Cancer Fund Gala, joining Troy Aikman to continue the fight against childhood cancer that Staubach led for more than 30 years. In addition to donating his time, Prescott has contributed more than $40,000 to childhood cancer research.

Prescott will receive a donation of $255,000 which will go to a charity of his choice from the NFL and Nationwide Insurance for winning this award.
