Dak Prescott, Mississippi State players attacked on spring break
Three Mississippi State football players were attacked in Panama City, Fla., while on spring break, reports MarronAndWhiteNation.com. Yahoo Sports confirmed the report, adding that quarterbacks Dak Prescott and Damian Williams, as well as defensive lineman Torrey Dale, were "jumped" at a Waka Flocka concert.
The three players were assaulted unprovoked by an "unknown group of people," Mississippi State assistant athletic director for media relations Bill Martin told Yahoo Sports. Martin also said the three players received superficial wounds and no police were called.
Prescott acknowledged the incident in a Tweet on Monday night. A video of the attack also surfaced on Instagram after the reports (warning: the video is graphic and contains strong language).
Thanks for all the Concerns and Prayers! I'm okay and ready to get back to Starkville. Ignorance happens! Be safe on Spring Break!— Dak Prescott (@dak) March 10, 2015
Brooks Roberts of Bulldog Sports Radio shared photos appearing to show a bloodied Prescott after the incident.
Prescott, a Heisman Trophy candidate for much of last season, announced in January he would return to Mississippi State for his senior season. Prescott threw for 3,449 yards, 27 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2014, adding 986 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns.
Mississippi State (10-3) was ranked No. 1 in the nation for five weeks during the season and finished No. 7 after losing to Georgia Tech in the Capital One Orange Bowl.
