Virginia defensive back wins $100,000 in the lottery, able to keep the money
Chuck Davis is picking up the tab if he goes to a fancy dinner with his teammates
Davis stopped at a local 7-11 in Ashburn, Virginia, where he lives, following a morning workout to pick up some coffee. While at the store, he played Cash 5 and selected the numbers suggested to him by his grandmother.

For the record, the winning numbers were 1-3-4-7-9. (Not 1-2-3-4-5, the same combination I use for my luggage.)
