Dak Prescott grew up in Louisiana and played football at Haughton high school. Prescott had a respectable senior season combining for almost 4,000 yards between passing and rushing, throwing for 39 touchdowns, and rushing for another 17. He led his team to a district championship in his final season.
Interesting side note, Dak's first name is Rayne, but his middle name is Dakota, hence the slang for Dak.
In 2011, Prescott enrolled at Mississippi State and decided to redshirt as a true freshman. The next season, 2012, he served as a backup to Tyler Russell, but still played in 12 games. In his sophomore season (2013), Prescott took over after Russell suffered a concussion. Prescott would finish the season as the starter, passing for 1,940 yards, 23 total touchdowns, and seven interceptions in 11-games. He was also named MVP of the Liberty Bowl after leading Mississippi State to a 44-7 victory over Rice Owls.
The following season (2014), Prescott led the Bulldogs to a 10-2 regular-season record, taking them to the Orange Bowl and the university's first number one ranking ever. That season he broke ten school records, including single-season passing yards (3,449), passing touchdowns (27), total touchdowns (41), and total offensive yards (4,435).
In 2015 he continued his impressive career, leading him to join a rare company, as the 4th player in FBS history to pass for 60 touchdowns and rushing for another 40, joining Dan LeFevour, Tim Tebow, and Colin Kaepernick.
At one point, he had a streak of 288 consecutive pass attempts without an interception. For his career, Prescott finished 3rd in SEC history in total yards, and 4th in touchdowns, impressive considering the competition within that division.
