Tyler Gordon, the winner of Dr. Pepper’s Tuition Giveaway, thanked God on live national television after he won the $100,000 scholarship money.
“I want to thank God from the bottom of my heart,” Gordon declared to the millions watching. “If you do not believe in him, I pray that you would soon become a believer.”
Gordon, who is attending West Virginia University’s College of Law, won the grand prize after throwing the most footballs into a target during halftime of the Big 10 Championship game between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Wisconsin Badgers, Faithwire reports.
Gordon said the money will help him achieve his dream of becoming a lawyer.
“It’ll mean the world to me,” Gordon added. “Words can’t express how much it means. I’ve tried and honestly, all I can say is that I’m so excited and so thankful for the opportunity. It’s going to allow me to be able to pursue my goals without being hindered by my debt.”
Sports Spectrum podcast host Jason Romano tweeted his admiration for Gordon.
“If you were on national TV and a believer and had 45 seconds, would you give praise to God and encourage others to do the same knowing you might face backlash? Good on the Dr. Pepper kid here for being bold.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
