Justin Vossler, a Homer resident and history teacher at Moravia High School, is now a two-day “Jeopardy!” champion.
Vossler, 28, defeated two challengers — George Buri, an educator from Winnipeg, and Connie Rudd, a writer from Oklahoma — with another large Final Jeopardy wager.
Entering the final round, Buri had $16,800 and Vossler was in second place with $14,400. The Final Jeopardy category was Americana. The clue: “This official U.S. government song traces its roots to a song about Roderick Dhu, the leader of a Highland Clan.”
The correct response was “Hail to the Chief.” Vossler answered correctly. Buri did not.
