Steve had tall hair that had to be shellacked down for the role of Van Helsing, his friend Shawn remembers.By all accounts, he was a hit.
The drama teacher asked him to stick around for the year.
Steve got the lead in the one-act play White performed that year -- Robert Falcon Scott in Terra Nova. He was named best actor at the UIL area or region contest (he can't remember which).
Later that year, he played Buffalo Bill in Annie Get Your Gun.
Shawn (Whalen) Shinn, one of Steve's high school friends, just sent a fun care package of photos from those days. Cooper and Katie loved seeing Daddy from high school, dressed up in so many ways -- even as a cheerleader for some kind of spirit day.
