Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott took the league and the Big D by storm in a way not seen since the glory days of America’s Team with Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin. The superstar teammates and fast friends took different paths to stardom — Zeke as a highly-touted running back out of Ohio State and Dak, an overlooked 4th round pick out of Mississippi State — but they had equally impressive and memorable rookie campaigns.The Boys Are Back: Dak, Zeke, and a New Cowboys Era in Big D is the ultimate celebration of the Cowboys’ unforgettable 2016 season and details the incredible rise to prominence for Prescott and Elliott. Including dozens of full-color photographs, fans are provided a glimpse into the best and brightest Cowboys of present and future — Dez Bryant, Cole Beasley, Zack Martin, Byron Jones, Travis Frederick, and more. It will also feature an in-depth look at the key veterans who helped spark the breakthrough season, including Jason Witten, Sean Lee, Tyron Smith, and the minds behind it all — Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett. This keepsake is sure to inspire and entertain Cowboys fans everywhere and get them ready for the 2017 season and what promises to be years of winning big in Big D.

The Dallas Cowboys are America’s team. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always translate to being a winning team. While the franchise boasts one of sports’ biggest and most loyal fan bases, along with its share of Super Bowl hardware, the Cowboys haven’t played for a title in more than 20 years.

 

In The Boys are Back (Triumph Books, Sept 15, 2017), sportswriter Jean-Jacques Taylor explains how young stars Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott plan to snap that streak and bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Big D. Loaded with full color photography to capture the action on and off the field, as well as quality reporting, this great new title will bring value to fans of all ages. Highlights include:

 

  • How veteran leadership from established stars like Jason Witten, Sean May and Dez Bryant helped nurture the rookie phenoms
  • Inside the War Room on draft day, and how the Cowboys found themselves with their QB of the future
  • A look at the friendship between the two young stars, and how their chemistry plays out on the field
  • How the Cowboys and their fans expect the team to build on their young talent base to build a new dynasty
  • A look at the complex relationship between Tony Romo and Prescott

 

The Boys are Back serves as a great keepsake to celebrate Elliott and Prescott’s incredible rookie seasons while simultaneously offering a glimpse at what the Cowboys faithful have to look forward to in the future. No Dallas football fan’s library is complete without this great new title.
