Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott was named the Senior CLASS Award winner on Tuesday, an honor presented to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I football.

The award recognizes student-athletes that use their platform to make a positive impact as community leaders.

“I’ve gone through a lot of adversity during my time here,” Prescott said. “But I’ve had such a great support system from my teammates, the university and the fans that always support me and let me know that they are here for me. That always made it easier just to keep going with a smile on my face.”

Prescott is just the second Bulldog to receive a national honor joining 2012 Jim Thorpe Award winner Johnthan Banks.

“Dak represents everything that is good about college athletics and is incredibly deserving of this honor,” said MSU director of athletics Scott Stricklin. “Words can’t adequately describe what he means to Mississippi State.”

Florida’s Tim Tebow was the last Senior CLASS Award recipiant from the SEC in 2007.

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.
