Heath Kufahl is a teacher at Christian Heritage Academy in Del City, Oklahoma. He also coaches volleyball and basketball, and is an advisor for the school newspaper. (--Heath's age wasn't given. Del City is a suburb of Oklahoma City.)
--He does so many extracurricular activities because Heath has a lot of mouths to feed . . . he supports a family of EIGHT on his teaching salary. He used to spend his time trying to qualify for "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire".
--And money became even tighter last year, when his wife Jenni was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer. Jenni's tumors are shrinking . . . which is good news. And Heath got a little help with medical expenses on Tuesday night.
--He was chosen for a halftime contest at an Oklahoma City Thunder NBA game, hit a half-court shot, and won $20,000. He's the first person in two years to hit the shot and win the money.
