Dak Prescott – Senior Quarterback, Mississippi State

Going into the fall, the quarterback position in the SEC is a question mark. Of the 14 schools in the SEC, only four schools are certain about who their starting quarterback will be at the beginning of the 2015 season.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs are one of these teams that knows who will be under center to kick off the new season. Fifth-year senior quarterback Dak Prescott put up huge numbers in 2014, compiling 4,435 all-purpose yards and 41 total touchdowns. Prescott led the Bulldogs to an impressive 10-3 season, and even had Mississippi State ranked as high as No. 1 in the nation at one point last season.

All of this has earned Prescott national preseason honors, including 2015 National Player of the Year Candidate and 2015 Preseason All-American (Athlon Sports, Phil Steele). So Prescott knows the spotlight is on him this season to say the least. He says he is ready to put up even better numbers, and lead the Bulldogs to a better season in 2015.

“I know I just have one more shot at it,” Prescott said during the SEC Media Days. “I’m going to give everything I have to make sure I do great work.”

With Mississippi State returning junior wide receiver’s De’Runnya Wilson and Fred Ross, Prescott will have the receiving corps to put the Bulldogs in contention in the SEC West once again.
