Robb Moser, social studies teacher and head wrestling coach at PHS, won the hotdog eating contest by scarfing down 10 dogs (with buns) fast-er than the other seven contestants. Instead of a victory speech, he said, “I just want a nap.” Students CJ Mulcahy and Jonathon Siira quit early, but cheered for the other eaters. Elizabeth Huwe/FOCUS4 / 6
