Friday night, He did it?  A Hendrick Hudson High School teacher, Francois Barcomb won the 'Jeopardy' teachers tournament.  

The 50-year-old Gardiner, New York, had quite a fight, according to USA Today 

Barcomb got off to a blistering start on day one Thursday night by finishing with a total of $20,400. His opponents, Conor Quinn and Sara Delvillano, lagged well behind with $5,600 and $4,800, respectively. Quinn went all in and ended up with $26,400. That combined with last night's figure of $5,600 brought his total to $32,000.

But in the end Barcomb's huge cash advantage of  $41,600, was too much to beat.

Barcomb says he will be back in his science classroom, on Monday.
