You often hear people say “listen to your wife” or “listen to your mother.” Some lottery players have even claimed winning after heeding such advice. For Virginia defensive back Chuck Davis, listening to his grandmother was the key.
When he dropped by a 7-11 in Ashburn, Virginia, after a workout, he decided to buy a Cash 5 lottery ticket using a number combination suggested by his grandmother, which was 1-3-4-7-9.
After the draw, Davis checked on the lottery website and discovered his number had won a $100,000 prize! For a student-athlete to win that kind of money means he won’t have to worry about college expenses as long as he does not squander the windfall.
