LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Earlier in the year West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis made a bet with Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski.

Mayor Dennis is a West Lafayette High School alum and Mayor Roswarski attended Lafayette Jeff.

So, when the two schools faced off against one another in football, the loser would have to wear the other school's football jersey at a public meeting.

At tonight's Lafayette city council meeting, Mayor Dennis crowned Mayor Roswarski with the scarlet and gray.

He decided on the number 70 because that was the jersey number he wore during JV football.

Mayor Roswarski wore number 35 while he played.

The two were good sports about it and even hugged it out celebrating the friendly competition.

"Tony and I have been bestfriends for over 30 years," said Mayor Dennis. "So it was a pretty easy sell to say c'mon let's do this. Now that we're both mayors with two cities that have a great relationship, but also have some fair fun competition, it was kind of a cool thing to do."

Mayor Dennis said he was glad the two schools finally played each other because the two cities needed some competition.
