RUSHVILLE — In the world of sports betting, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.
This weekend, a Rushville man won big.
Cameron Craig bet $5 on which player would score the first touchdown in each of this weekend’s NFL playoff games.
When Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz scored the touchdown, that $5 bet turned into $72,795 in winnings.
“Honestly I think I was feeling just about every emotion you could imagine. I mean I never thought I was going to be in that situation to begin with," Craig told WRTV.

Craig shared a video of the touchdown and his reaction on Twitter. It's been liked more than 43,000 times.
“That moment in that video is something I will never forget though. Beyond grateful that I got to spend it with my friends," Craig said. "Nothing but pure joy and a memory that I will have for the rest of my life.”
Craig shared that he used the winnings to become debt free, calling it life changing.
