Video: Dak Prescott

Mississippi State senior quarterback Dak Prescott discusses his last first bowl practice.

On his last bowl practice…

 “It’s my last one.  I am not taking majority of the reps in the past so I guess from me taking all of the reps to now right to the coaches teaching the younger guys making sure they are getting better.”

On his thoughts on the quarterback situation after he leaves…

“It’s exciting. They are all really talented.  I’ve told them all that I think they are better than I was at their age. They have talent. They have size and they have speed so it will be a very exciting competition between the three.”

On this being his last bowl game…

“It is just another game.  It is nothing that I think of, I just try to go out there every day and prepare myself for us to get a win.”

On tips for the younger quarterbacks…

“It’s leadership and the way that they react around other and the way they react when they throw a bad pass or when they throw an interception.  How do they respond?  Do they get down or do they allow their teammates to see that things are getting to them; just really their demeanor and their attitude around the players. I really enjoy seeing the difference and how they all react.”

On how he teaches leadership…

“It can be taught from the standpoint of just getting the other guys going or making sure they are busting their butts for you, but it really begins with what you do.”

On life after Mississippi State…

“I look forward to what’s next for me in life.  I am excited and always thankful for everything that I’ve done here and the people, but I am excited for what’s next.”

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
