Dallas Cowboys Antoine Bethea Womens Jersey quarterback Dak Prescott's meteoric rise from fourth-round draft pick to NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year landed him the best breakthrough athlete award Wednesday night at the 2017 ESPYS at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. "I've got to thank my teammates," Prescott said after receiving the award. "All those great vets that allowed me to come in as a rookie and just take over the team and propelled me to do so." Thrust into the starter's role after Tony Romo was injured in the preseason, Prescott was an immediate hit in his first NFL season, earning a Pro Bowl selection in addition to winning top rookie honors. Prescott tied an NFL record for a rookie quarterback with 13 wins, including 11 straight, and led the Cowboys to an NFC East title. He had 23 touchdown passes and only four interceptions while also setting a team record for a quarterback with six rushing touchdowns. Prescott was the Cowboys' first offensive rookie of the year since Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith. LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- It was a more muted and interim triumph than either Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo or Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti had once envisioned, but one they very publicly savored together. The International Olympic Committee voted Tuesday to approve a proposal that gave the two of them more control over the destinies of their Summer Games bids than any mayor in decades. The bid committees, with the mayors' crucial influence as host-contract signatories, now have the chance to come to terms this summer on a deal that would ensure both will host, one in 2024, one in 2028. Garcetti and Hidalgo were confident the measure Tyler Eifert Womens Jersey would pass and that IOC president Thomas Bach, who was asking members to give up some power, wouldn't have put it to a vote if he were unsure. If it had failed, Paris and L.A. would have immediately resumed sprinting down the finishing straightaway of the usually expensive and stressful bidding competition until the final 2024 vote in Lima, Peru, on Sept. 13. The mayors had spoken in broad strokes about finding common ground at a private meeting at a Lausanne hotel last Sunday. On Tuesday, during the 30-minute coffee break in which the last details of the IOC proposal were being drafted, they stood alone at the edge of the atrium-style lobby of the SwissTech Convention Center and conferred again briefly before returning to observers' seats not far from each other in the meeting room After the unanimous vote, Hidalgo said she and Garcetti looked at each other, then spontaneously rose, hugged, and took each other's hands. "He said, 'What if we go up there?' and I said, 'Of course,' and off we went," she said in an interview Wednesday, referring to the mayors' decision walk onstage, greet Bach and say their thanks to the full membership. "We didn't premeditate it at all."Now comes the truly uncharted part. "There will be conversations in short order to really dive into the details," LA2024 bid chairman Casey Wasserman said by phone Wednesday before leaving Lausanne. "Both mayors will be there for the close. Their direction and perspective will drive the result." The two camps now are tasked with hashing out an agreement on which city will wait until 2028 and under what conditions. All indications are that it will be L.A., and hopes are high that terms could be made public around the third week of August. "I think it's going to go fast," said a source inside one bid committee who Marshall Newhouse Womens Jersey asked for anonymity. "Now that it's a pretty baby, everyone wants to be the father." Both Hidalgo and Garcetti would have to present any new terms to their respective city councils and help re-sell them to the public. "We have a 100-percent need to be transparent and completely open and share 100 percent of the information with our residents," Garcetti said in an IOC joint press conference Tuesday. "In Los Angeles, I've always said we could do it almost tomorrow, and we could do it, if you chose, 50 years from now ... We're in a very safe place, I think, to communicate both the strengths of '28 and '24 to our residents and to get their sense of it, and to move forward." Negotiations will take place on two levels of content, with the involvement of lawyers for the bid committees, the national Olympic committees and the IOC. "It's not just about cooperation, it's about deeper coordination," Wasserman said. First will come the practical and legal details of how Games operations might be affected by synergy in staff and resources, and possible compensation for the city that waits. Financing for a 2028 organizing committee that would form earlier than usual could be on the table. Bach appointed a fast-track Evaluation Commission to review specific 2028 matters.
