Can a Rookie Quarterback Be the Big Man in Dallas?

Two days before Dak Prescott’s NFL debut, the quarterback of the world’s richest sports franchise has a problem.
He needs more tickets.
The Dallas Cowboys—who are worth an estimated $4 billion, according to Forbes—only issue their players two complimentary seats to each home game, forcing Prescott’s friends and relatives to get creative before Sunday’s season opener against the New York Giants.
Rodney Guin, Prescott’s high school coach from tiny Haughton, Louisiana, says the local newspaper reporter is covering the contest. Maybe he can sneak Guin in with an extra press pass. Childhood friend Jeremy Hicks, a security guard at a Shreveport travel stop, says he might purchase a standing-room-only ticket for $29 and watch Prescott do his thing from the AT&T Stadium concourse.
