New Father is in Shock; Having a Child is Cool Enough, he says. But Winning $100,000? Awesome


New father and 19-year-old Christopher Skaggs of Ingalls, Ind., says winning $100,000 from the Hoosier Lottery is wild.

I’m in shock, said Skaggs as he waited for his winnings at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis Wednesday. It’s wild, especially being 19 years old.

The self-employed mechanic hopes to use his winnings to purchase a house, providing he can find one with a suitable garage.  The money comes at a great time for the new father.

I’ve got a four month old and I’ve fought all my life to make money, said Skaggs. This means a lot.

Skaggs said he considers himself fortunate to have been in the right place at the right time.  His top prize winning Cash Bonus Scratch-off was bought by chance  in Pendleton.

Thank you, said Skaggs.  I’m happy things are gonna change.
