Local ESPN Streak to the Cash Winner

Posted: Updated:

For the last five years, Kevin Engellant has competed in the ESPN.Com's "Streak for the Cash."
The object of the game is to pick the winner of a college or professional athletic competition.
At the end of the month, the player with the longest consecutive winning streak wins a cash prize.

Engellant says, "You pick whichever side you think is going to win and you can't pick anything else until that game or proposition is complete, and then you can pick the next one. So the idea of the game is to generate a streak, consecutive win streak."

Kevin reeled off a streak of 34 correct picks, A streak that was the longest in the nation. And at the end of November, his 34 picks stood at the top. As the winner, Kevin won $400,000.

Engellant says he plans to save the money for his children's college education and plans to donate some to charities in Dillon. Otherwise, he says this month he's back to trying to beat his streak.

In Dillon, Rob Jesselson, ABC/FOX Montana.
