It’s finals season at law schools across the country, but one third-year law student at West Virginia University has more than just exams on his mind. Tyler Gordon is pondering the $100,000 he won in a nationally televised football-throwing competition last weekend.

Gordon won the money Dec. 7 in the Dr. Pepper Tuition Challenge during the Big Ten Championship in Indianapolis, where he threw 20 footballs into an oversized soda can from five yards away in 30 seconds—beating out his competitor. His win has generated a lot of media interest in West Virginia, as well as in the Christian press, after Gordon said on air after his win: “I want to thank God from the bottom of my heart. If you do not believe in him, I pray that you would soon become a believer.”
