Duke Basketball: Roddy White Makes Good on Mercer Bet

August 8th, 2014| by

Roddy White is indeed a man of his word.

Back in March, the NFL wide receiver notoriously bet a fan on Twitter 50-yard-line Falcons season tickets if Mercer beat Duke in their second-round NCAA Tournament matchup.

One 14-over-3 upset later, Twitter was clamoring for White to pay up on the bet. He initially relented.

But now as NFL training camps get into full swing, White has finally made good. Twenty-year-old Falcons fan Dylan Hoyt has received “two Falcons season tickets, two Super Bowl tickets, sideline passes to a home game and the chance to come to training camp one day as White’s guest.”

Not a bad haul for tweeting on a whim before a giant upset.
