MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) - A Marshall boy who lost his mother to domestic violence was given a special gift from a Dallas Cowboys player on Sunday.
Zane Dunn, 7, received two tickets to this year’s Super Bowl from Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott before the Cowboys game on Dec. 9. Tickets were also given to another child, Kendrell Daniels.
“Today was a special day, an emotional day. I had two friends here, Kendrell and Zane, and they just mean a lot to me and just to see those guys before the game and just everything they’ve been through in their personal life," Prescott said.
Zane Dunn’s grandfather confirmed that Zane and Prescott met earlier this year and had bonded over the fact both had lost their mothers.
Prescott surprised Dunn and Daniels, who were on the sidelines, as part of the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year program.
