I received a post on FB wondering if perhaps Eduardo Sevilla (from Vienna, VA) could be related to (1987 Seniors) Zeke Sevilla, Jr. (from Vienna as well)? If so, that is the kind of thing Alex needs to mention next week when he talks to Eduardo.

If any of the Teachers Tournament players are reading here and heard about such a connection, please share.

Zeke's IMDB page says he earned a Silver Star in Vietnam. Eduardo's profile page for his school says he grew up in an Army family.

Not concrete proof, but certainly looks possible.

Sevilla was accompanied to last week’s event at the school by his mother, Letitia, and sister, Sylvia. His mom said her husband, Zeke Sevilla, had actually appeared on “Jeopardy!” in 1987, and her son had made it his mission “for the last 30 years” to duplicate his father’s feat.
