Dallas Cowboys jersey numbers help woman win $600K

By SEAN MURPHY Associated Press Writer

OKLAHOMA CITY — A retired horse trainer from Sallisaw who used Dallas Cowboys players' jerseys to select her lottery numbers won $600,000 in Saturday's Powerball drawing.

Nita K. Jacobs, 60, who originally is from Vernon, Texas, was watching the Cowboys football game Saturday night when her neighbor called Jacobs to see if she needed anything from the store.

"I told her just to pick me any numbers, and she said, 'oh, no, you have to pick your own numbers,'" Jacobs said. "I was watching the Cowboys, so I just started scribbling down the numbers."

The winning numbers from Saturday's drawing were 2-8-23-29-35, and the Powerball number was 19. Jacobs matched all five white ball numbers, and multiplied her $200,000 prize by three with the power play multiplier.

"I've dreamed of it for years," Jacobs said. "I'm just tickled to death."

Jacobs moved in 1991 from Texas to Sallisaw, where she started a horse-training business. But she had knee surgery earlier this year that forced to end her training and rely on income from boarding horses.
