POUND RIDGE -

A Pound Ridge native has kept his TV game show winning streak alive and continues to rack up big money.

Westchester native Austin Rogers has won Jeopardy! for the 12th straight day and has now won $411,000.

Rogers grew up on the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, where his father worked as a ranger, and now lives in the Spanish Harlem section of Manhattan. He has become a national sensation for his winning streak and quirky personality.

He'll defend his title again tonight and also be a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
