Dak Prescott Becomes Internet’s Darling For Picking Up His Own Trash

Dak Prescott threw for 300-plus yards and three touchdowns Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys’ win over the Baltimore Ravens.

But his play on the field wasn’t what had everyone talking.

During a break in the action, CBS’ cameras caught Prescott trying to toss an empty cup into a trash can and missing. But rather than continue on with his life, the rookie quarterback actually got up to pick up his trash and throw it away.

Prescott certainly didn’t need to clean up after himself — he was busy playing an NFL game, after all, and a Cowboys assistant undoubtedly would have picked up the stray cup for him. The internet agreed, as the Dallas rookie scored major brownie points on Twitter for his simple act.

Of course, not everyone was ready to say that throwing a cup away makes Prescott a saint.

There’s one thing we can all agree on, though: Prescott is having an incredible rookie campaign, and the 10-1 Cowboys currently are the best team in the NFL. Good luck trashing them for that.
