DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has been nominated for the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year award. 

Prescott has been announced as the Cowboys nominee for Walter Payton Man of the Year for 'commitment to philanthropy and community impact.'

Considered one of the league's most prestigious honors, the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award presented by Nationwide recognizes an NFL player for outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field.

"The Man of the Year Award gives us the opportunity to acknowledge 32 exemplary players whose commitment to excellence extends on and off the field," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. "This year's nominees have used their platforms to transform communities across the country. We are proud of their work and celebrate their dedication and impact through this award."

First established in 1970, the national award was renamed in 1999 after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton.
