Dak Prescott has lost 10 pounds since the end of the season and looking thinner and trimmer as the Dallas Cowboys began the start of the offseason program this week in preparation for the 2018 season.
I’m getting older, Prescott said Tuesday night. I figure I better fix my diet now. I guess I’ve dropped a few pounds, but it’s more about not eating the fast food, being 22 and realizing my metabolism is going to slow down.
Prescott said he is right where he wants to be and added that he will put on 5 pounds before the start of the season. He said the weight loss has nothing to do with him possibly running more in 2018, as the Cowboys move toward an offense more suitable to his skills.
I always drop a little weight in the offseason, Prescott said. I’ll gain a little more weight so I can take the hits and play at about 230-235 [pounds].
Background: You may not believe this, but I wasn’t a normal kid. My favorite baseball team became the Houston Colt .45s. That was in 1962, when the Colt .45s began and my uncle, who lived in Houston and had some commercial connection to the team, began to send me Colt .45 pennants and programs.
In 1963, a 19-year-old rookie, Staub, joined the Colt .45s. And whenever I ran into Staub, we both knew what I wanted. He patiently prepared to answer questions about that 1963 club.
