Brad Robinson (Bradbury Robinson) threw the first legal forward pass in Waukesha in 1906. One of the most important "firsts" in American sports history occurred in Waukesha on September 5, 1906, when Carroll College (Carroll University) (now Carroll University) hosted the football team from St. Louis University. SLU halfback Bradbury Robinson threw the first legal forward pass in football history in that game. The Carroll players and local fans were stunned. The visitors went on to win 22–0. farm. In 1893, John Tuohy sold the land to his son William who saw it as the perfect opportunity to build a golf course. The resort, including grand hotel, 12 cottages, and 18-hole golf course, drew many people from Milwaukee (Milwaukee, Wisconsin), Waukesha (Waukesha, Wisconsin), and even Chicago (Chicago, Illinois). When the course first opened, it was only 25 cents to play 18 holes, but William was known for letting people golf for free if they didn't have enough money. Biography Bestor was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and raised in Orem, Utah, graduating from Orem High School in 1976. His grandfather played trumpet in Tommy Dorsey's band and his great uncle played trombone in Jack Benny's band. He got his start in music as his parents "required" their children to take piano lessons, which he didn't always enjoy. He was envious of his friends who were out playing football and other sports while he was stuck practicing piano. One day his mother told him to "play something that sounds like a sunrise." He came up with something he said wasn't much, but it opened the door to a new level of enjoyment with the piano; composing. He says he still hasn't written a song especially for his mother, but hopes to be good enough to do that some day. He also learned to play the trumpet, playing in the pep band in high school. He is an accomplished trumpeter, pianist and composer, as evidenced in his concerts and recordings, along with a few vocals. Some vocals are synthesized with his keyboard, as in his famous ''Prayer of the Children''.

Ziegler was so angry with the way his squad had looked in practice that as an insult he said they looked like a bunch of "Spoofhounds". The players mockingly referred to one another by this insult and the name stuck. In the 1940s, Ziegler became the superintendent of schools for Columbia, Missouri where the mascot is also named for an early 20th century doll—the Kewpies. Marc's Distinctive High School Mascot Collection Retrieved October 26, 2006 Maryville's mascot has evolved over the years from a lovable buffoon "Spoofy" to a snarling "Hound." As of 2009, no other academic institution or sports club had adopted the nickname.
