Rep. Warwick Sabin filed a house resolution commending the
E-Stem High School senior for winning the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament.
House Resolution 1020 was filed Tuesday and passed the Aging,
Children and Youth, Legislative & Military Affairs committee Wednesday. The
resolution now goes to the House.
The 17-year-old has received international attention for his
comeback victory and humorous final answer. Going into the second day of the
two day final, Leonard was in last place, but changed his standing when he hit
a Daily Double question.
Leonard bet $18,000 of his $18,200 total on the Daily Double. When he got the answer right, he nearly
double his total to take the lead.
The Final Jeopardy question was "On June 6, 1944 he said, ‘The
eyes of the world are upon you.'" Leonard didn't know the correct answer so he
bet nothing and wrote "Who is some guy in Normandy, but I just won $75,000!"
He told KATV he wants to use the $75,000 grand prize to pay
for college but also to splurge a bit. "Possibly buy a car," said Leonard. "Buy some more music
equipment. I could use a new guitar. You know, new amps new affects pedals. Stuff
like that. A pedal board would be cool."
