This offseason has felt a bit longer than usual for the Dallas Cowboys, so long that Dak Prescott getting his record-setting contract extension feels way in the rearview mirror.
A lot has happened to Prescott over the course of the last year, football and otherwise. Through it all he has shown an ability to handle it all in stride while serving as the centerpiece of the most visible professional sports franchise in the world.
Whatever you may think of Dak on the field there is no question that he is an incredible person off of it. His journey over the last year is one that has earned him a lot of new fans and it was chronicled in the first episode of ESPN’s Up Close with Sage Steele. The episode is available to stream on ESPN+.
We sat down with Sage to discuss the episode, what went into it, filming with Dak, and more. You can watch the interview right here and on the Blogging The Boys YouTube Channel. Make sure to subscribe to it (which you can do right here) so that you don’t miss any of our videos.
Longtime sports fans will remember Up Close and Roy Firestone. This reimagined version with Sage Steele is very similar and the opening episode with Dak Prescott is very powerful.
It isn’t easy to talk about trials and tribulations in life, but Dak has opened the door for others to see his vulnerability. Having him serve as the leader of the Cowboys is an incredible thing as he is such an easy person to root for.
