WEOKIE member hits 35-yd field goal wins 25K
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (11/20/12)--A randomly selected WEOKIE CU member kicked a 35-yard field goal Saturday and won $25,000, compliments of the Oklahoma City, Okla.-based credit union.

James Liles, 32,  an electrician from Mustang, Okla., kicked the field goal in WEOKIE's "Kick for Cash" promotion with Oklahoma State University Athletics while attending the Oklahoma State University vs. Texas Tech game at Cowboy Stadium in Stillwater.

He and his wife Ginger have three children. Liles, a huge Cowboys fan, said the kick was an "opportunity of a lifetime." WEOKIE President/CEO Brent Taylor was present on the field to congratulate Liles and said that "WEOKIE is committed to changing the financial lives of its members."

The $870 million asset credit union received 1,874 entries for the "Kick for Cash" promotion, which began in September. The promotion with OSU featured WEOKIE's 1.99% auto loan rate and gave those entering a chance to kick at the Cowboys' home game.
