Over the last year, Dak Prescott has earned the admiration of many fans across the world. He’s done this with his leadership, incredible play on the field, and high character and humbleness off the field.
It’s the latter point that we’re here to address today. We hear so much about what a humble person Dak is, and now we have an opportunity to see it. Recently a young man named Raymond Melgarejo, who lives with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, had a wish to meet his hero, the Cowboys quarterback who wears #4. With the help of the Dallas Cowboys and ESPN, a very special memory was made as his wish was granted.
If you want to watch the full feature with Dak and Raymond you can. It will air this Sunday during the 8am and 11pm (ET) editions of Sportscenter on ESPN:
