Natalie Buffett, Prescott’s girlfriend, gave him a ride to Cowboys camp in Oxnard, California, taking time out to post a car selfie of the pair on Instagram before saying goodbye.
“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 has spent this summer finishing up his rehab from last season’s brutal leg injury. He and Buffett did find some time to get away to Omaha and watch Prescott’s alma mater Mississippi State win the College World Series.
Now, it’s all business. Prescott is determined to show he’s fully recovered and worth the lengthy and lucrative investment the Cowboys made in him prior to the 2020 season.
“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.”
The Cowboys will hold their first practice of camp tomorrow morning.
