Devastating news in the world of the NFL as we learned that Jace Prescott, the older brother of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, died Thursday, the team said. He was just 31 years old.
The Cowboys confirmed the older Prescott’s death in a brief statement. No details on how or where Jace Prescott died were given.
“The loss of Tad and Dak’s brother is devastating,” the Cowboys said in their statement. “At this incredibly difficult time, the Prescott family asks only for prayers and respect for their privacy.”
The older Prescott was an offensive lineman a decade ago at Northwestern State in Louisiana, where the Prescott brothers Tad, Jace and Dak all grew up. Dak Prescott starred in a Campbell’s Chunky Soup commercial with his two brothers that aired last season.
This is another brutal loss for Dak and Tad as their mother, Peggy Prescott, died of colon cancer in 2013.
Jace Prescott played three seasons at Northwestern State, starting all 11 games in his final season in 2010.
