Dak Prescott got a special ride to training camp this year.
The Dallas Cowboys superstar quarterback was dropped off at training camp by his girlfriend, Natalie Buffett.
Prescott, who’s coming off a season-ending injury in 2020, is hoping for a huge bounce-back season in 2021.
“The love and passion you have for his game is electrifying,” Buffett wrote. “You inspire me every day and I know God has amazing things in store for you this year. Go get ’em babe!”

Prescott and Buffett have been dating for more than a year. The couple went Instagram official back in July of 2020.
It’s unclear how long they’ve officially been dating for, though Buffett has shared several photos of the happy couple on social media.
Earlier this year, Prescott agreed to a massive four-year contract extension. The Cowboys quarterback is now locked up for four years and $160 million. Buffett shared a special photo at the press conference.
The happy couple had an appropriate costume for Halloween last fall, too. Buffett dressed up as a nurse with Prescott, still recovering from his leg injury, was in a cast.
“Time for your vaccine,” Buffett wrote on Instagram.
“Ready for my checkup,” Prescott replied.
We’ll likely be seeing Buffett in the stands of games at AT&T Stadium later this fall.
Prescott is hoping to have a major bounce-back season. Former NFL quarterback Alex Smith knows a thing or two about coming back from serious leg injuries.
“Dak is, I think, one of the most unique athletes in the NFL – and I really think that from like a freakish perspective,” former NFL quarterback Alex Smith said recently. “He is such a strong, powerful, such a good athlete. So I really expect him to come back and be rolling. Then you add that on to his fortitude and mental perspective? I think he’s going to have a huge, huge year.”
Prescott and the Cowboys are scheduled to open the 2021 season on Thursday, Sept. 9 against the Buccaneers.
