Dak Prescott has got his priorities in order.
The Dallas Cowboys' quarterback has been getting all kinds of offers to appear on television during the team's bye week, but has decided to keep his fame on the football field.
Prescott turned down no less than two television appearances to spend time in Louisiana with his grandmother.
"It's football and family," Prescott told Clarence E. Hill of the Star-Telegram. "That's what I focus on. If I have time to get away and spend time with my family that I'm not going to get to do for awhile that I haven't done for a while. I'm going to take advantage of it.
"It's more important to me to spend time with my family than go with those deals."
"One of them was a late-night show with somebody," said Prescott. "Another one was out of country and that was definitely no. Those deals with be there. If they really want it bad enough, they will find a way."
While most athletes don't hesitate when asked to appear on Jimmy Fallon, James Corden, Stephen Colbert, or Jimmy Kimmel, Prescott knows that the bye week is for relaxation, staying focused and healing up.
After leading the Boys' to a 5-1 start to the season, he knows that there should be plenty of opportunities to show his face on television during the offseason.
