Faith, Fight, Finish: Dakota Prescott Finds Strength Through His Own Adversity to Advocate and Care for Others

As we celebrate Black History Month, it’s good to look to the past for inspiration as well as to those living today who serve to inspire us through their accomplishments and most importantly through their work with helping others. The Walter Payton Man of the Year award is a great opportunity to do this as it is awarded each year to an NFL player who like Walter Payton, the famed running back of the Chicago Bears, excels athletically and in service to others. This year’s recipient is Dakota Prescott. Prescott is the Dallas Cowboys famous quarterback who has overcome significant personal obstacles, and is using what he learned and experienced from his family’s tragedy to help others similarly in need.
