|Career highlights and awards
Dakota Prukop (born October 17, 1993) is a professional American football quarterback for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League (CFL). He played college football for Montana State from 2013 to 2015 and for Oregon in 2016.
Prukop transferred to the University of Oregon upon his graduation from Montana State University. Prukop announced his intentions to transfer to Oregon on December 15, 2015. On January 5, 2016, Prukop began classes at Oregon, officially joining the football team. After struggling in the Ducks' 5th game against Washington State, Prukop was benched and freshman quarterback Justin Herbert took over for the rest of the year.
On May 23, 2017, Prukop signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL. He played in nine games as the third-string quarterback, but also saw time on special teams, recording six special teams tackles for the year. While he didn't dress in any playoff games, he was a member of the 105th Grey Cup championship team in 2017. In 2018, he began the year as the fourth-string quarterback again, but was promoted to the active roster and regularly dressed as the third-string quarterback due to an injury to the team's starter, Ricky Ray.
