Linemen Gobble Up Backs in Bridgeport Pizza Eating Contest

After three long weeks of early practices with Bridgeport football, head coach John Cole knew he wanted to wrap up the summer session with some fun.

On Wednesday morning, the team gathered for a pizza eating contest. Eight lineman and eight backs squared off to see which team could eat three Papa John's pizzas and a cookie cake the fastest. Not surprisingly, the team of linemen won.

The MVP of the lineman team was rising junior center Peyton Henderson, who scarfed down four slices and the entire cookie cake for his team.

"Coach said if we win, we might get out of some running so I did it for the lineman," Henderson said with a giggle.
