A resident physician from Little Rock, Arkansas...

Date of first appearance:
College Championship, Feb. 1996

Total Winnings:
$37,800

Favorite anecdote associated with being on the show:
I was able to arrange my medical school admissions interview for the morning before my first game in the 1996 Tournament of Champions aired. I may not have needed them to see the game, but it couldn't have hurt my chances!

What did you do with your winnings:
Most of the winnings went toward medical school. Portions were also used to make a down payment on a house and to take a couple of trips (2 weeks camping and rafting through the Grand Canyon and a 3 week trip through central and southern Europe).
