Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott is winning more than football games this Christmas season

Sure, he's an NFL rookie who's leading a team that is currently sitting in first place in the NFC East, but Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has a side to him even more impressive than his accurate arm.

Prescott was spotted in a Dallas area Target on Sunday night, and when an employee asked him if he needed any assistance, the quarterback gave him an answer he likely wasn't expecting.

He told Target employee Stuart Newton that he was shopping for Christmas gifts for several angels he had adopted from the The Salvation Army/NBC 5 Tree program.

The Salvation Army placed Christmas trees at 11 malls around the Dallas/Fort Worth area this year. Hanging on the branches of the trees are "angel" tags, which all give the first name, age, gender, clothing size, wish item, and need item for a local child in need.

Newton sent a picture of himself and Prescott to his wife, who posted it on Facebook with the caption "And my husband just sent me this... He was shopping for an angel tree! So amazing!"

This isn't the first time Prescott has been spotted doing something to show he hasn't lost his roots or his humility. Last month, a video of Prescott getting off the bench to throw away his trash — instead of leaving it for stadium staff to pick up— went viral.

Prescott has led the Cowboys to an impressive 11-1 season so far, with a bonus achievement of being the first NFL team to clinch a playoff spot this season.
