South Bend local Greg Langel won $1 million during half time of Sunday's Colts vs Jaguars game in Indianapolis.
Five finalists were selected from all over the Hoosier state to come to the game and stand out on the field while their names were put into a large drum. Only one name was drawn for the million dollar ticket.
When that time came, Langel says he tried not to get his hopes up, then he heard his name.
“I was almost stunned. I was trying to remember to breathe and just thinking about all the great things that this is going to do for us now," he said.
Langel is a graphic designer and owner of Pitcock Design Group in South Bend. He’s been an illustrator and designer for over 30 years.
He says the $1 million is going to help his family sleep a little sounder in these rough economic times.
