Bruin Trivia
The Bruins original colors were the same as UCLA- columbia blue and yellow. Other color combinations considered were cardinal and yellow.
Brentwood HS was almost named Northside High School-to go along with Northside Junior High (Brentwood Middle School)
The first game was against Lookout Valley on 9/3/82; and resulted in a 30-6 Bruin victory. The average age of the starters was 15 years old. 1700 people packed the small stands.
Clay Whitehurst scored the first ever Bruin TD. Whitehurst (Alabama) and QB David Armstrong (Western KY), were the first-ever Bruin football players to earn a college scholarship.
In 1983, $250,000 was raised by the parents for a new stadium. Stadium lights were purchased by the Brentwood Civitan Organization, and the original pressbox was built by players and their fathers. The stadium was added onto again in 2002, and the Bruins changed sides of the field.
Coach Jim Pauley has been the longest continuing member of the Bruin coaching staff-since 1982.
You know Gene Andrews who helps cut the grass? He was a Bruin Head Coach. Nick Waggoner? He was the interim Head Coach when Nick Coutras quit during the 1987 season.
1985, Brentwood had their first district win in a season
In 1993, John Ash was named the Mid-State Coach of the Year. Four years later he would be replaced. After this historic 8 win season, he would only win 8 more games in the next three years.
Think the Bruins have always had good teams? Think again- During a 10 year stretch from 1985-1995, with the exception of two good playoff years, Brentwood's combined record was 14-72. This includes three straight years of a 1-9 record. In fact, during the Bruins first 15 seasons (1982-1996), the Bruins' record was 52-101 with two playoff appearances. 
Since 1997 to present, the Bruins' record is 137-49, with only 2 losing seasons.  This time period includes the longest playoff run (15 straight) in Bruins' history, a State Championship and 7 Regional Champioships.
James C. Parker, the first principal of Brentwood High and the stadium's namesake, has never missed a Bruin football game.

School Song:

Brentwood, On to Glory
Words by Randy Box

Standing proud we sing for Brentwood
Loyal always to the Gold and Blue
Side by side we strive for honor,
Noble Bruins brave and true,

Years from now we will remember,
How our Friendship saw us through;
Now to thee we sing, O Brentwood,
On to glory, praise to you.
