Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott is a major self-disciplinarian — a huge reason why he’s led the Dallas Cowboys to a 4-1 start.
But in this week’s Sports Illustrated cover story, SI’s Pete Thamel reveals just how much. Thamel opens the article with Prescott debating whether to use free Kanye West tickets he’s received or stay home. Prescott decided to stay in, and this is how he came to the decision.
“Prescott did the math aloud: Kanye will go on after 9. The show will last a few hours, which means getting home after midnight. The decision was clear. He offered the tickets to his childhood friend, Cobi Griffin, who declined. So Dak kicked back in a recliner, Cobi sprawled on the couch and the two spent the night flipping between a Texans-Patriots game and Clemson-Georgia Tech. ‘I wanted to go a little bit,’ Prescott said of the concert. ‘But I just think about the perception of it all. And I love my sleep.'”
Yes, that’s right. Prescott passed on free Kanye tickets because he loves his sleep.
