August 13, 2016 was no longer just an ordinary day at the Coliseum.
The Dallas Cowboys headed to California last August to play in their preseason opener against the newly-minted Los Angeles Rams. The hype was plenty as the National Football League found itself back in L.A., but there was concern around the Cowboys organization to find a suitable backup quarterback for their oft-injured starting quarterback, Tony Romo. Kellen Moore had broken his leg prior to the game and it was now Dak Prescott who would get most of the preseason playing time, and likely become the backup quarterback for the 2016 season.
That photo you scrolled past was of Dak Prescott warming up before the preseason opener last season. It was the first game of his professional career and no one in the front office knew what to expect. Quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson recently said that he “wasn’t sure how Dak would respond in his first game, playing in the Coliseum and all that stuff.” Well, heck, none of his did.
