There have been several stories of people who had a dream they would win the lottery, and then woke up the next day and it actually happened.

According to WQAD, Iowa man Kelvin Wynn dreamt the winning numbers a few weeks before he won $300,000.

He said, “I had a dream and in that dream it was hotel room number 2112, but I thought nothing of it.”

After winning the Southland Conference on Saturday night and earning an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament, Stephen F. Austin head coach Kyle Keller said he had a dream earlier this year that he hopes is a prophecy for his team’s success in the tournament.

An emotional Keller said, “I had this dream this year that we would play in Dallas, and somehow we could win two games.”

Stephen F. Austin enters the tournament as a No. 14 seed and will face No. 3 Texas Tech in Dallas on Thursday night.

This is the fourth time in five years the Lumberjacks will play in the tournament.

SFA’s last appearance was in 2016 when they entered as a No. 14 seed and knocked off a heavily favored West Virginia squad before falling to Notre Dame on a last second tip in the second round.

Keller is famously known for his time as an assistant coach at Oklahoma State when he was supposed to be on a plane that crashed and claimed the lives of 10 people, including two Cowboys players.

Just before the flight, Keller was asked to switch seats so he could get home earlier to prepare game film and ended up on a different flight.

“I had that dream one night and it was amazing and I’m not quitting on that dream; I just believe it.” said Keller.

There are people in this world who just have a sixth sense about things and Lumberjacks fans are hoping Keller’s dream becomes reality.
