August 25, 2010 - Friday's big game hasn't even been played and already the Oxford varsity football squad has beaten Lake Orion.

The Wildcats were victorious in the "Men vs. Men vs. Food" eating competition held Aug. 21 at 'Wiches in downtown Oxford.

Oxford's eight-man eating machine cleaned their plates first, leaving the Lake Orion team in the dust.

It took the Wildcats a mind-boggling 20 minutes and 20 seconds to down two Wicked 'Wich sandwiches (4.5 pounds each) plus two extra-large specialty pizzas (a total of 32 slices).

Oxford's eaters consisted of gridiron warriors Keegan Kuypers, Prescott Line, Ryan Reason, Corey Bell, Collin Goetz, Harley Muscarella, Kyle Chester and Matt Anger.

To be fair, Lake Orion's team, which consisted of eight members of the Dragons' hockey squad, wasn't too far behind.

The brave icers gave Oxford a run for its money and should be applauded for stepping up to defend their school's honor when their football team wasn't allowed to participate in the eating contest.

It begs the question, will the Lake Orion football team show up for Friday's game or will it have an excuse to get out of that, too? – CJC
