Bama fan scores lottery win

Just two days after his favorite college football team scored an impressive win over Tennessee, Joe Lewis of Opelika scored himself.

The 47-year-old father of two cashed in on the Georgia Lottery's Fantasy 5 to the tune of $73,357. And he did it using numbers of his favorite Crimson Tide football players.

The winning numbers for Monday's Fantasy 5 drawing were: 4-11-14-22-29.

“My football team, the University of Alabama, is doing really well,” Lewis explained. “So I used five numbers from some of the players.”

Lewis purchased his lucky ticket at the Money Back at 1900 Highway 18 in West Point, Ga.

The current Alabama players who helped Lewis score are injured wide receiver Tyrone Prothro (4), wide receicer Matt Caddell (11), quarterback John Parker Wilson (14), wide receiver DJ Hall (22) and running back Terry Grant (29).
