Hendrick Hudson HS teacher wins $100,000 on 'Jeopardy!'
A physics teacher at Hendrick Hudson High School just completed his run on "Jeopardy!" -- winning $100,000.
News 12's Nadia Galindo sat down with François Barcomb hot off his win.
"I feel great! I've known what the outcome was since early April, so for six weeks I've been kind of sitting on it," says Barcomb.
Barcomb had the highest total of three finalists in the "Jeopardy!" Teachers Tournament episode that aired last Friday. The veteran high school teacher says his knowledge in the classroom and his life experiences helped him win.
He says some of his winnings will go toward his daughter's college fund and necessary things around the house. He says some of it will go toward traveling.
Although this tournament is over, Barcomb says his days on "Jeopardy!" may not be. If the game show hosts a Tournament of Champions this year, he would be automatically invited.
