Cowboys' Dak Prescott wants to return to school, earn doctorate

Dak Prescott told the Talk of Fame Network that he plans to go back to college to get a doctorate in psychology. He already has a bachelor's degree in educational psychology and a master's in workforce leadership from Mississippi State, where he holds 38 football records.

"Even though I had all the confidence in myself in making it to the NFL or in the game of football, I knew that it could be taken away from me at any moment," Prescott said (per The Dallas Morning News). "I never wanted to be that guy saying, 'What if I'd have gotten my degree or something, then I would've had something to fall back on.'

"Getting my degrees has helped me immensely just within the game of football and with people, just making me more educated in general. And it's something that I continue to do."

Prescott made the SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll three times at Mississippi State. He redshirted his freshman year, which gave him time to attain his undergraduate degree in December 2014 and his graduate degree a year later.
