If you were gifted a potential 15 seconds of fame, would you use it to glorify God and evangelize?

College student Tyler Gordon did.

He was the winner of one of last week’s Dr. Pepper Tuition Giveaways during several college football conference championships.

After winning the grand prize of $100,000 to pay off his tuition, Gordon never held back in front of millions watching live on Fox Sports.

“I want to thank God from the bottom of my heart. If you do not believe in him, I pray that you would soon become a believer,” Gordon said.

Gordon also briefly thanked his family and school, while wishing happy birthday to a nephew.

Gordon was chosen for the contest following video submissions that explained why the tuition money would help them. He’s a current law student at West Virginia University who received accolades on social media for his evangelizing gesture.

“Shoutout to Tyler Gordon, Dr Pepper tuition winner, for loving Jesus and wishing everyone watching would believe in Him as well,” Brandi Koontz wrote.

“The world needs more people like Tyler Gordon,” Andru Montague tweeted.

During an interview on Fox News, Gordon reiterated that he’s proud of his faith and wanted to share it with others.

“The opportunity to share my faith in front of millions was a blessing,” Gordon said to Fox News. “I truly believe that God answered my prayers and allowed me to win so that he could use me in that moment to be a witness and share the gospel. I never want to be ashamed of my faith, and I thank God for allowing me the opportunity to only grow it more and to give him the glory.”
