Reader Pick

Dak Prescott

After Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo gave his concession speech last year acknowledging that Dak Prescott deserved to continue as starter, Prescott continued to draw praise on the field for his team leadership and accuracy of deep throws. He went on to help the Cowboys clinch the top seed in their conference and was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Luken Baker

Towering at 6-foot-four and 265 pounds, Luken Baker arrived on the TCU baseball team with a lot of hype on his shoulders. And he delivered. As a freshman in 2016, Baker shined both as a pitcher and a hitter before he was relegated to hitting after dealing with arm issues. He hit .379 that year, smashing 11 home runs in the process. This year, he's back as a sophomore and playing first base, still firmly planted as one of TCU's top hitters.
