Bruce Eyster – 2007
Bruce Eyser - 1965
WHAT AM I DOING NOW?
Drama was one of those
electives in high school which some believed would be an
easy A" and possibly fun. Bruce Eyster, class of '65,
made the most of it. He took Keith Wilson’s class
seriously, picked up his Drama letter and ran with it.

1947 was a rebuilding year for the Wellston football
team following the
graduation of many of the stars of the 1946 regular
season undefeated county
championship team. Still, despite winning only
Brentwood 25-0 and
St. Charles 7-6, the 1947 Trojans worked and played
hard all season, losing
to county champion
Webster Groves by
only 19-12 in a hard fought game.
Sharp passing and fine running quarterback Bob Grenier and hard hitting fullback Robert R. Smith
sparked the Trojan offense.
