“This is really tough for me honestly. After all that celebration, they told me I’m not going to get it. I feel a little hurt,” said finance major Jack Lavery, 18. “No one from West Chester has even reached out to me yet.”
“We are hopeful that the university will award him with $10,000 for his unbelievable feat like they promised,” said Bill Lavery, Jack’s father. “We kind of feel a little let down. They made him believe he won after the shot. It’s kind of frustrating.”
The kid’s dad even said he would match the $10,000 if his son won it so he has extra incentive to get this ruling reversed. I hope they give him a scholarship, take the good publicity and call it good.
