ATHENS, Ohio - The season doesn't open for a couple more weeks, but already an Ohio University football player has made a very big score.
The Ohio Lottery says Bobcats offensive lineman Mike Eynon matched five numbers to win $250,000 in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing.
After taxes, the senior from the Cleveland suburb of Westlake will receive a check for $172,500, which he plans to put toward his schooling.
Eynon bought his ticket from a convenience store in Athens. He says he plays the lottery every now and then, spending $1 to $5 at a time.
