The Dallas Cowboys will rely on a rookie quarterback to carry them toward their goal of winning Super Bowl LI.
And they couldn't be more confident in him.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The team posted a video on Twitter Friday morning that tells Dak Prescott's story of where he derives the strength to bear the pressure of being the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.
"This weight I carry isn't a burden if you know my story," he says in the video.
Prescott says the message his mother, Peggy, delivered to him before she died of colon cancer in 2013 gives him all the strength he needs.
"These words: Fight, finish and faith were her final commands she left for my brothers and I," he says.
Prescott says every touchdown, every win and the opportunity to win the Super Bowl is an opportunity to honor his mother.
"This moment, right here, is what she dreamt for me," he said. "How could i be anything but ready?"
