Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott bared it all posing nude in the latest ESPN Body Issue Cover. Dak Prescott, though, was less than pleased about his actions.
Prescott is doing a lot of work for his Charity: Ready. Raise. Rise. to spread cancer awareness, and he had this to say in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
“I think Zeke should use his platform to do things like I’m doing with Bristol Meyers Squibb for Ready. Raise. Rise. instead of doing his thing for the body issue and doing photo shoots.”
Prescott has been on a role promoting his charity. He recently appeared on ESPN and Good Morning America.
It’s something he is very passionate as he lost his mother to colon cancer during his redshirt-sophomore season in 2013.
“Losing my mom as only a sophomore in college. 20 years old. Cancer is near and dear to my heart, so any signs going forward is going toward immunoon cology research to defeat cancer. Everything that I do in life is to try and honor my mom, and this is another situation where I can use my platform to bring awareness to all the Americans affected by this devastating disease.”
Prescott is doing great work without a doubt. He is spreading awareness for a cause that is truly near and dear to his heart.
Elliott has done his fair share of charity work as well. though. I’m sure many NFL fans remember him jumping into the Salvation Army which caused thousands of people to donate to the charity. Elliott himself also donated to Salvation Army.
Dak Prescott was later asked in the interview if he would ever consider doing a photo-shoot like Ezekiel Elliott and he had this to say;
“I think it would have to be in order to promote something, but I’m not really sure. I would have to get that offer first and talk it over.”
