Officers from the Bowie Police Department and Bowie High School’s football coaches stuffed their faces full of burgers for a good cause June 18.

The result? Bowie High School’s football coaches won by a landslide.

The team of four police officers took nearly half an hour to finish four burgers, one per team member, Capital Gazette reports. Bowie High School’s football coaches finished in 11 minutes, 50.3 seconds. Each team member had to quickly finish a whole burger -- crumbs and all -- before the next person could start.

The teams took part in the Smokey Bones Burger Battle as a fundraiser -- the Bowie Police Department was raising money for the Special Olympics and the Bowie High School coaches for the football team.

“It feels great to win,” junior varsity coach Derrell Qualls told Capital Gazette. Qualls is excited for the opportunity to win a large sum to support the team.

Capital Gazette reports every Smokey Bones in the country held the burger-eating competition on June 18. The team with the best overall time will receive $5,000 for their organization.

But there’s more ways for both the Special Olympics and the Bowie High School football team to benefit from the chow down, according to Capital Gazette. If you’re going to Smokey Bones in Bowie any time until July 6, bring in a copy of the burger battle flier and mention the battle to donate a portion of the check to both causes. The Bowie High School Bulldogs will receive 75 percent of the proceeds. The remainder goes to the Special Olympics on behalf of the Bowie Police Department.
