Goooaaallll: College Student Nets $5,000 at Soccer Game

San Diego, Calif. — When Roger Gordo decided to attend the University of San Diego’s Men’s Soccer team season opener against 16th ranked Cal Berkeley, he probably wasn’t thinking about becoming the most talked about guy at the game.

But that’s exactly what happened after he took to the field during half-time and won $5,000, courtesy of the University of San Diego, and paid for by Odds On Promotions.
Gordo won the big bucks after he netted five amazing soccer shots in an Around the World Soccer Contest.

According to USD’s Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing, Ryan Reggiani, there were roughly 1,000 fans in attendance when Gordo stepped on to the field. “It was really amazing. After each shot he was getting closer and closer and the crowd kept getting louder and louder. After he hit the final shot, the Coach came out and gave him a big high-five. It was amazing. It just shows you, people really do win these things,” he continued


Reggiani noted, “The claims process was pretty simple. We just sent in the video and the paperwork and that was it. We’re going to be doing a check presentation this weekend. It was a fun event for students and the fans. We’re already working on getting things set up for the rest of the season and our winter sports.”

Want to give a student or fan the chance to win a giant prize for just a small price this season?
