On Sunday, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott held his annual ProCamps youth camp at the Star in Frisco. In addition to completing drills with the youngsters and teaching them his trademark hip thrusting maneuver, the 29-year-old assisted one Cowboys fan with their gender reveal.
Prescott volunteered to assist a woman wearing a No. 4 Prescott jersey with her reveal by removing the hidden information from an envelope.
Prescott has yet to go through the gender reveal process, despite proving proficient at it. The quarterback is still unmarried and childless as he begins his seventh season in the NFL. However, he is an uncle.
“I’ve always felt older, I guess,” Prescott admitted. “Being 30 doesn’t worry me in the least. Knowing that I am the old guy, entering my eighth year, seeing some of the young guys, some of the rookies, and witnessing the change in eight years. It’s both exciting and tough at times to know that I’m staying connected and in the moment with what’s good and things. But this game is stunning. It makes no difference how old you are because you play this game like a child.”
“Just understanding injuries and what I’ve been through my career, and understanding that you don’t get to play this game forever,” Prescott continued. “I consider myself fortunate to have each and every moment. I’m just trying to take it as soon as possible.”
The reigning Walter Payton Man of the Year paused to reflect on how much it means to him to be able to provide that experience to the child at camp.
“It’s always great, always a blessing to be out here during camp season,” Prescott said. “I’m just buzzing with excitement.” It’s unique. It’s part of being the quarterback and being in this position that I’ll never grow tired of having an impact on the youngsters like I did today.
“The sport of football… I’ve been a fan of this game since I was their age. And I’m about to turn thirty. You can see what this game means when you’re out here with people of all ages. I enjoy interacting with people and playing games.”
