One man walked into a Rockford bar tonight expecting to lose money on the game. Instead, he walked out with thousands.

Tim Hicks is celebrating with his friends tonight after his name was called in a raffle over the loud speaker of RBI's. Hicks won ten grand after the kickoff in the second half was returned for a touchdown.

Hicks said he can't believe his luck.

"It's still, I don't even believe it," said Hicks. "It's too good to be true right now. I don't know, I feel so good right now. I called my mom. She didn't even believe me, man."

Hicks says he will probably use the money to take his family on a trip.
