turkeybowlCLEVELAND -- Scott Golomboski -- AKA Santa Scott -- is now a two-time Fox 8 Turkey Bowl winner!

He beat out contestant Laurie Hoerrie in this year's competition. Golomboski, of Akron, won last year, too.

The Fox 8 Turkey Bowl is in its 17th year and was bigger and better than ever.

Sixteen fun-loving contestants threw frozen turkeys at cans of cranberry sauce today in hopes of winning the coveted trophy.

As usual, it was at the Giant Eagle on Mayfield Rd. in South Euclid.

Among the highlights this year was another awesome performance from one of the most popular past contestants ever -- Merle Murphy -- AKA Mr. Lake County.

Last year, Merle gave a great performance, which got a lot of attention on Fox 8's social media pages. So we had him back this year, and he didn't let us down.
