Dak Prescott responds to SportsCenter social media troll

The Dallas Cowboys have become a punchline for their lack of playoff success in the past 25 years. The team’s starting quarterbacks always get heat on social media, and Dak Prescott is all too familiar with it.

SportsCenter posted a tweet from NFL memes on Instagram that highlighted NFC Championship appearance games since 1997. It showed none for the Dallas Cowboys, and one for Tom Brady, who is in his first season in the conference with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Prescott, who missed all but five games this season due to an ankle injury suffered in Week 5 against the New York Giants, made sure to get his word in:

Following ‘SportsCenter’ Appearance, Moreira Predicts One FC 3 War with Enomoto in Singapore



Prior to his recent appearance on ESPN “SportsCenter Asia,”
lightweight Zorobabel
Moreira was understandably a little on edge.

The first mixed martial artist to ever appear on the program, the
Brazil native spoke briefly with anchor Steve
Dawson about his upcoming bout with Felipe
Enomoto at One
Fighting Championship 3.

“I was very nervous before I went on ESPN ‘SportsCenter,’ because
they told me they had never had an MMA fighter before, and my
English is not so good,” Moreira told Sherdog.com of his on-air
experience. “It is very crazy in Singapore right now because
everyone is talking about One Fighting Championship, and there are
posters of me and everyone wants to know about my fight. When I
first came here, most people did not know what MMA [was], but now
everyone has heard about One FC and has seen it on TV.”

Moreira and Enomoto will headline Saturday’s event,

Strawbridge makes SportsCenter, earns SWAC award

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WREX) — Former Rockford Lutheran star Kenny Strawbridge is off to a fast start at Alabama State. Monday night, Strawbridge landed on SportsCenter’s Top Plays when he corralled a blocked shot and hit a reverse layup at the buzzer to propel the Hornets to victory.

“Yeah, it was definitely crazy seeing I was on SportsCenter,” Strawbridge said. “I was talking to my mom last night and she was like, ‘What if you made it on SportsCenter?’ I was like that would be crazy. Ten minutes later one of the coaches sent it to the group chat that the last play made it to SportsCenter. I turned on the TV, waited for it to come on. It’s crazy going on ESPN and they’re saying my name and stuff like that.”

Strawbridge, who is in his first season at Alabama State after playing junior college ball last year, heard from
