Virginia's Chuck Davis wins $100K in lottery

Chuck Davis is having a productive offseason, at least where his bank account is concerned.

The Virginia cornerback won $100,000 in a Virginia Lottery Cash 5 game this week after his grandmother told him which numbers to play.

“We shouted together!” Davis said. “I looked at the numbers on the website after the drawing and said, ‘I… won!’”

With college football players unable to get paid under NCAA rules, the money will certainly come in handy for Davis and his family over the course of his time with the Cavaliers.

Davis’ grandmother went with the numbers 1-3-4-7-9 in an impressive display of prognostication. The odds of winning the Cash 5 game are 1 in 278,256.

Virginia football player Chuck Davis wins six-figure prize playing local lottery

Virginia football player Chuck Davis is $100,000 richer, and he won’t be in any trouble with the NCAA.

While home with family, Davis recently stopped by 7-Eleven to pick up his morning coffee. He told Sports Illustrated’s Dan Gratland that he decided to pick up a lottery ticket in Virginia’s “Cash 5” game while at the convenience store.

“I looked at the numbers on the website after the drawing and said, ‘I… won!’” he said.

If Davis is feeling generous with his winnings, it’s easy to guess who will be the first to be treated to something special. He revealed that it was his grandmother who suggested the five winning numbers.

Luckily for Davis, the NCAA allows players to make money through random games of chance. We’re guessing quite a few of his teammates will be looking for him to pick up the tab from now on.
