A girl in North Canton, Ohio stole the show at halftime of Saturday’s Big Ten Championship game on FOX and wins the passing accuracy challenge, giving her $100,000. The girl will use the money for her tuition.

“I practiced in Walsh’s gym and my dad would come with me and help me practice,” Molly Brown, a Walsh University student and Louisville High School graduate, said. “I’m thankful to everyone who has helped me.”

Brown looked comfortable with her throw in the Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway. at halftime of the Ohio State-Michigan State conference title game.

To make it worse, she beat a guy, Alex from Minneapolis, who was throwing the football like a man. Unfortunately, he was throwing it more like a Tebow. She beat him 18-10.

Brown went with an unconventional throwing style. She used chest passes like a basketball player and pushed the ball through the large Dr Pepper cans. She won eight letters playing basketball and volleyball at Louisville.

She successfully tossed 17 footballs into the can in 30 seconds to win.

Brown worked on her throws all week leading up to the Big Ten Championship Game. Her neighbor, Vic Gramoy, owns Hammond Construction, and made a wooden practice hoop for her to throw through. The Walsh and Louisville football programs donated footballs for her to use.

Brown plans to become a nurse.
