Homeless man wins ESPN.com Fantasy Football grand prize

A homeless Massachusetts man Nathan Harrington beat out 3.1 million other competitors to win the ESPN.com Fantasy Football challenge taking home $3,500 worth of Best Buy gift certificates.

After getting into a nerve damaging car crash last fall, Harrington was forced to move into a cheap motel with his finance and three-year old son. With no computer, Harrington relied on the public library, his father’s nursing home and his friends to check his lineup.

God was on his side or at least Tim Tebow’s side… Harrington finished in first place by .8 points after he started the Denver Bronco’s quarterback in the final week. Harrington is selling the gift certificates to his mother for $2,500 and will use the money to help him and his family move into a new apartment.
