FOOTING ON TO FAME Davis has seen many brilliant seasons in the past and will probably see many seasons more successful than that of 1943. However. future Davis teams will have to go a long way to equal the rugged defense that our FOOTBALL TEAM showed this year. This is obvious wheh a quick glance at' their record will show that no team defeated our charges by more than one touchdown. At Roosevelt, Russ Doyle's men showed real fight when they took the game out of the bag in the closing minutes, when a pass from Sergeant to North netted a score. Captain Walt Brockway's sterling defensive play was more than evident when the team battled Gorton to a scoreless tie. The Davismen rose brilliantly in a 21-0 triumph over Yonkers Central, with the attack led by the plung- ing of Don Trischett and the shifty running of Godfrey Bellavigna. The squad never hit their stride again and succumbed to the Port Chester and Pelham elevens. It was the educated toe of Dick Auricchio that saved more than one scoring threat. The intra-city championship remained a draw as a favored Edison team was tied by our gallant team. A blocked kick picked up by John Macri produced a 6-6 tie. To the disappointment of all, a 60-yard pass spelled defeat for a hard-fighting Davis team and a touchdown for New Rochelle in the last game of the year. Such names as Brockway. North, Sergeant. Purchler. Butler, Merlin, Trischett, Auricchio, Bellavigna, Macri, and Schuler will not be easily forgot'ten. IDENTIFICATION4 CUpper Leftj Row I: R. Sergeant, C. North. W. Schuler, R. Aurrichio, W.

When the football team trots out onto the field to begin a game, it is usually met with a thunderous ovation from the stands. To see that this enthusiasm dosen't wane. as well as to chime in with their own little bil. is the chief function of the CHEERLEADERS. The cheerleaders lend their vocal support to the Davis cause throughout the whole game. They keep the crowd in active Cnoisyl participation and the team "red hot" from whistle to whistle. However, it is usually after the game has progressed a bit and the opening tempo has slackened that this vocal support contributes the most. When our warriors are worn and weary, it serves to remind them that the school is back of them. When the team is making a drive down the Held to the opponent's goal line, or digging in for a last-ditch de- fense of its own goal line. a little moral support from the grandstand often spurs the players on to a winning effort. The cheerleaders have a number of clever cheers to get this effect. Some of them are even accompanied by cavortings that bear a vague resemblance to a dance or a jig. They're all spirited. though. and with the cheer- leaders on the sidelines to whip up the Davis partisans. the team is assured of the proper background of yelling and cheering for a football afternoon.
