"This came at such a great time!" said Brooks, who has been on disability for a short time.  He also said he plans to use his winnings to pay off some debt.  According to Brooks, he regularly plays Powerball but this is the first time he won.
Brooks purchased his winning ticket at Jubilee Express on College Drive in Baton Rouge.
