Heisman Hopeful! 2015 was Dak’s final season of college football. He was the starter again entering his final season at Mississippi State. During the 2015 season, he became the fourth player in FBS history to pass for 60 touchdowns and rush for 40 touchdowns in a career. His 2,411 rushing yards places him third in all-time rushing yards by a quarterback in SEC. He ranks 4th in SEC history with 107 total touchdowns responsible for (passing, rushing, and receiving) and fifth in total yards (rushing and passing) with 11,153. His streak of 288 consecutive pass attempts without throwing an interception is the longest in school history and the third longest SEC history. In the Bulldogs’ 2015 game against Arkansas he set the school single game record and tied the SEC single game record for touchdowns responsible for with seven (five passing two rushing) and set a new school record for touchdown passes in a single game. He was named the AutoNation National Offensive Player of the Week by the Football Writers Association of America the Davey O’Brien Award National Quarterback of the Week, a Manning Award Star of the Week by the All State Sugar Bowl and the SEC offensive player of the week following his performance in the Bulldogs’ victory over Kentucky; a game in which he passed for 348 yards and three touchdowns to go along with 117 yards and three rushing touchdowns. He won many more awards and was consider for the Heisman award this season and last season. His statistics were stronger in 2014 but due to the competition in 2015 he got more consideration to win the award in 2014. Although falling short of the Heisman two straight seasons Dak was happy with his play. For the season, he passed for 3,793 yards, 29 passing touchdowns and 10 rushing touchdowns. For his career, Prescott finished third in SEC history in total yards, and fourth in total touchdowns. He holds 38 school records at Mississippi State University.

Hopefully he can be just as great as he was in college football as he is on the Cowboy’s now. He has to fill in some pretty big shoes with Tony Romo leaving soon. I am hopeful though with Dak and Zeke. LikeLike Reply This is an interesting blog! I do not know much about Das Prescott but he seems like he is a good football player. I enjoyed reading about hime.
