Dak Prescott makes emotional return to the Cowboys’ ground
Dallas Cowboys star Dak Prescott made an emotional return to the Cowboys’ home ground on Monday night after a career-threatening injury there almost a year ago.
The quarterback suffered a gruesome compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle last October, ruling him out for the rest of the season.
On his return there on Monday (27 September), Dak threw for three touchdowns as the Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles 41-21.
Prescott cried during the pre-game national anthem, and after the game said: “I am just thankful of everything I have been through to be back here doing what I am doing.
“A couple of times [it got emotional]. During the warm-up, pre-game, and then the anthem. Then it was go time.”
What is Ask 4 Help by Dak Prescott?
Dak endured a horrific 2020.
He lost his brother Jace to suicide in April, then suffered the season-ending ankle injury.
Prescott admitted to suffering depression during this period, and has been an advocate for mental health awareness.
After his brother died on 23 April 2020, Prescott wrote his late brother a letter.
In part, it read:
“Jace MacKenzie Prescott
A Life Taken to Save Millions
You’ll never be forgotten for one second.
-Why didn’t you ask me for help?
-Did you tell someone how bad you hurting?
-Do you know how many people you affected?
-Do you know you’re adored, admired, loved?”
During the weekend (25 September), Prescott announced a new T-shirt campaign in honour of suicide prevention month.
Ask 4 Help is taken from one of the lines of the poem to his late brother.
“I invite you to join us in our mission to champion those who battle mental illness by helping them to realise their lives matter, find their purpose, always know they are not alone and to ask 4 help. Together, we can help #StopSuicide.”
All proceeds from sales will benefit @faithfightfinish4, a foundation created to battle cancer in honour of his mother, who died in 2013.
The focus has reportedly now shifted to support efforts to prioritise mental health and stop the epidemic of suicide.
