For the second season in a row, Mississippi State senior quarterback Dak Prescott has taken home the Magnolia State’s top individual football honor as he won of the 20th annual Conerly Trophy Tuesday. 

The award was presented to Prescott in Jackson, at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame. 

Eli Manning, during his Ole Miss days, is the only other player to have won the award more than once. 

"To be put in the same category as Eli Manning, the only two to win this award twice, that’s pretty special," Prescott said. "It’s very humbling and I’m just thankful."

MSU’s quarterback beat out fellow finalists Ole Miss receiver Laquon Treadwell and Southern Miss quarterback Nick Mullens for the award.
