Following training camp day two for the Dallas Cowboys, Dak Prescott, the Cowboys' quarterback, was asked about the National Anthem situation sweeping across the NFL. 

Prescott said he never protested during the Anthem and that he will continue to stand up for what he believes in. 

"I never protested during the anthem, and I don't think that's the time or the venue to do so. The game of football has always brought me such a peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people... a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people that have any impact of the game. So, when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away, takes away from the joy, the love that football brings a lot of people," Prescott said. 

Prescott went on to add that he believes the players who chose to kneel during the anthem were doing so to raise awareness of social injustice. But, Dallas' quarterback thinks that's been accomplished, and he is ready for whatever the next step may be.
