Dak Prescott Comes Back Home
Former Haughton Buc and current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is back home today. Prescott will be hosting his 3rd annual Youth Football Camp at Haughton High School today. Plus, he'll be receiving a big time local honor.
Prescott's youth camp will take place at Dak's old stomping grounds, Haughton High School. Not only will kids be able to work out with Dak and learn some of the finer points of the game, but all attendees will get a photo op and an autographed photo of the local NFL star.
After Dak's camp wraps up at noon, Prescott will then be inducted into the Northwest Louisiana Walk of Stars during a ceremony at noon in the Buccaneer Den. Dak is the 31st local "celebrity" to receive the honor, joining the likes of James Burton and William Joyce.
While Dak is having a big day locally, he may soon get a big pay day from the Cowboys. Prescott is entering the final year of his rookie contract with Dallas. Experts say that if/when a new deal is negotiated, Dak could earn between 20 and 30 million dollars a year. Those negotiations are expected to be completed by the end of the year. If a deal isn't brokered, Prescott could earn an even bigger payday on the open market in free agency.
