TULSA -- Tulsan Emeka Nnaka, who was surprised with $100,000 by Ellen Degeneres earlier this year, will appear again on the talk show host's program on Monday.

Nnaka says he has received an outpouring of love and support since his appearance on the show.

With the $100,000, Nnaka says he was able to buy a new handicap-accessible van, which he named in Ellen's honor.

Degeneres has another surprise in store for Nnaka on Monday. Since Nnaka volunteers with at-risk youth in Tulsa, she will give him $20,000 to support Youth Services of Tulsa.

The former semi-pro football player and avid volunteer in the Tulsa community lost his home in a fire at the Riverchase Apartments in Tulsa in September.
