UNLV Dental Student Casey Vidovich Wins $123K in Dr. Pepper Football Competition

Casey Vidovich wins $123,000 in the Halftime Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway

How cool is this?

The football-throwing abilities of a dental student from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) are helping him make a big dent in his tuition.

Casey Vidovich, a first-year dental student, won $123,000 through the Dr Pepper Million Dollar Tuition Giveaway. The contest took place on December 4 during the halftime show at the Virginia Tech-Florida State Atlantic Coast Conference game.

With about 70,000 fans in the stands watching, Vidovich threw nine of 10 footballs into a 2-ft-diameter Dr Pepper can to beat his opponent.

Here is his video that Casey sent to Dr. Pepper that allowed him to compete.

Unfortunately, the $123,000 will ONLY pay one half of his dental school tuition. But, not bad for throwing some footballs through a Dr. Pepper can!
