Eddie Brown of Keyes walked away with the 1st annual Steak Cook-Off Championship in Keyes Oklahoma on Saturday, August 29, 2009. Brown's steak had to beat the other six contestants in the competition, with less than 10 points, out of a possible 300 points, separating the top three entrants. For his win, Brown received a trophy and $500.00 dollars. Also winners on the day were the "Retired Pirates" a group of former Keyes High School graduates, including Tony and Jason Whitfield, Tommy Grazier, and Chris Wood. They took home two trophies, one for Best Sponsorship Participation, PTCI, and the second for Best Presentation.
