(ABC 6 News) - Holy Cow! From now on, every time your turn on ESPN, you may now think of Austin, Minnesota.

Why you ask? Because Austin native, Trace Bundy, who lived in Spam Town until he was 10-years-old and now lives in Boulder, Colorado, just won ESPN's Fan Jam Competition. The national contest was designed to help ESPN remake its famous jingle. Bundy was announced as the winner this morning and played the new jingle live throughout Sports Center's 9am eastern show. 

Bundy's aunt and uncle, Ann and Phil Bundy still live in Austin. Phil told ABC 6 news this morning that they knew Trace had won yesterday, because Trace's dad had told him that ESPN had flown Trace out to its studios in Connecticut.

"There hasn't been too many Austin born people that have been on national television, but he's one of them," said Phil.
