Don Lerman 1971
5 Year Old Ed Jarvis in 1971
The Year was 1971 and I was 23 years old and I just won a local Hot Dog Eating Contest. There was a 5 year old kid in The audience who watched the entire contest with his Mother… When the the contest ended he leaned over to his Mother and said “Ma when I grow up I want to be a Champion like Mr.Lerman”. Upon hearing that I responded “Son someday you’ll have your chance”..30 years later that same kid won his first contest..We all know that kid today as the famous Ed”Cookie”Jarvis.
