Mike Sharkozy was the winner of the NCAA Bracket Challenge contest and he took home a laptop computer today from Radio Shack in Knox.

We learned a little bit about Mike Sharkozy when he stopped by the studio to pick up his prize.

“I am a Senior at Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne as an education major,” said Sharkozy. “I’ll be student teaching next fall at Bishop Dwenger and I’m pretty excited about that. I guess I’m just your typical college student who likes to watch college basketball.”

With Mike studying to be an educator, the laptop will come in handy.

He told WKVI’s Anita Goodan about his strategy.

“This may make a few people mad, but I actually flipped a coin for each round to see who would win,
he laughed. “No, I’ve been watching since November and I had a pretty good idea of who looked good and who didn’t. Besides that, I guess you could say there was a little luck involved with some of the games.”

When asked which station has the best bracket challenge around, he happily replied, “WKVI!”

Congratulations to Mike Sharkozy and thank you to Radio Shack of Knox for providing a great prize for the contest!
