Phil Esquivel, of Kingsville, Texas, won the UIW Jingle Bell Raffle after buying his ticket at the football game against Texas A&M-Kingsville. The former mayor of Kingsville and owner of Phil Esquivel and Associates New York Life Insurance never really expected to win, despite telling students he had purchased the winning ticket when buying it at the game. Upon receiving the news that he had won the $5,000 prize, he immediately called his mother and told her she could buy herself anything she wanted for Christmas.
