Many around the country are surprised at rookie Dak Prescott’s impressive start to the season with the Dallas Cowboys.
The quarterback himself is not among that group.
Through two games, the first-year quarterback from Mississippi State has thrown for 519 yards and no interceptions while completing 62.7 percent of his passes. He’s also added a rushing score.
Despite the numbers, Prescott said he hasn’t been “wowed” by his early success.
“As I said before, I feel like I belong here,” Prescott said, according to the Dallas Morning News’ David Moore. “This isn’t a dream where I’m wowed every day. I feel like this is where I belong so I’ve got to continue to get better.”
Prescott has seen his fair share of success coming out of Mississippi State where he passed for 9,376 yards and 70 touchdowns, and rushed for 2,521 yards and 41 scores.
He hopes to bring similar, if not more, production to the NFL.
“I have high, high expectations for myself, a lot greater than this and what’s going on now,” Prescott told reports. “So I mean I want to continue to get better and I guess continue to give you guys stories.
