According to a story in USA Today Sports, Prescott passed away on Thursday morning. Jason Pugh, the Northwestern State assistant athletic director for media relations, said Prescott passed away on Thursday morning when other reports did not mention when he passed away except that it happened on Thursday.

Prescott played for the Demons from 2008 through 2010. At the time of his playing career at Northwestern State, he was 6-foot-6, 343 pounds.

Prescott is survived by Tad and Dak, along with their father Nathaniel. Their mother, Peggy, passed away in 2013 from colon cancer.

“Being the youngest of three boys, my whole life you’re getting your ass kicked,” Prescott said about growing up with two brothers. “You’re taking a loss every day no matter what it is. The one thing that gets you going is you’re the little brother — and you know all it takes is one win. One win. As a little brother, if you get one win, it’s the only thing that (expletive) matters —that I beat you one time.

“That means I can beat you every time.”
