Stepp was presented with his prize package – a Yeti Cooler filled with NSU merchandise — before the Vic The Demon Ride Around and yard sign delivery June 24.

Stepp accumulated the most points throughout the sweepstakes.

Points can be redeemed for prizes like T-shirts, water bottles, sideline passes and more in the Dr Pepper Demon Rewards store.

“It’s exciting to be the Demon Rewards winner,” Stepp said. “I absolutely love Demon athletics and have gone to every event I could make since I came to school here in 2011. I never expected to win anything, but to win a prize from doing something I enjoy – watching NSU athletics – is awesome.”
