DALLAS – Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has pondered the work of Mexican offensive lineman Isaac Alarcón since he arrived at preseason camp last year.
Prescott, like head coach Mike McCarthy, has reiterated that Alarcón works 100 percent every day, on and off the field of play, and that his attitude is always the best.
This time, Prescott also applauded the motivation “Isaac the Great” displayed in a conversation on HBO’s Hard Knocks with Arizona Cardinals tight end Bernhard Seikovit.
“I think it was amazing the way Isaac spoke and what he said to the other international boy from the Cardinals,” Prescott said in an interview with a satellite radio station Friday afternoon.
Seikovit hails from Arizona and came to the Cardinals this year as part of the NFL’s International Pathways program, as Alarcón did with the Cowboys in 2020.
“All the players that are here played college football (in the United States) except us,” Seikovits told Alarcón at the end of the preseason game.
“Don’t worry. God brought us here,” Alarcón replied. “Be brave, be brave. Feel the adrenaline rush of being here.”
Alarcón has played in the Cowboys’ first two preseason games; his first games since 2019, when he was part of the Borregos of the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico.
