THE PIONEER Presenting the Team Jack Stone— Quarter Back “Waddle” played four years of varsity football, during which he was honored by a captainship in 1935 and a second team all-state berth in 1936. Jack is famous in the state for his smashing defensive work. Co-Captain James Johnson— Tackle Co-Captain Johnson captioned his three years of sterling varsity football with his fine performance in the Danville game. Co-Captain Charlie Andrews— Half Back Co-Captain “Burks” was the rubber-legged and flashy broken-field runner of the 1936 Wolverines. Time after time he emerged from a line play to show his heels to would-be tacklers. His shoes will be hard to fill next season. Dan Hurdle— Center Although he weighed only 135 pounds, Dan capably held down the pivot position. Much is expected from this boy next year. Leslie Keith— End Playing at either end or tackle, “Les” brought joy to the coaches and fans alike with his fine brand of offensive and defensive ball. Preston Graves— Guard “Bucket,” who was the youngest player on the Wolverine eleven, proved to be a power in the front line of attack with his ferocious tackling and blocking. Elmer Shaver— Tackle Untrue to his nickname, “Sleepy” proved to be the spirit of the team. By nagging words and self-example he instilled the fire that staved off defeat and brought victory. Warren Sowder— Half Back Because he received much valuable experience this year as a reserve back, Warren is expected to be a key man in the 1937 backfield. Captain-Elected Paul McGhee— End In recognition of his ability as a leader and as a player, “Mack” was ele cted Captain of the 1937 Wolverines. He is an all-around athlete, but an exceptional football player, and is expected to be an excellent field marshall. Bruce Whitlock— Half Back “Hook” was an excellent blocking back and a tough customer for the opposing teams. He will be back next year to play the same brand of hard but clean football. Francis West— End “Sheep,” playing at a terminal position, materially increased the Wolverine chance of victory by snagging many of Stone’s bullet passes and because he was equally adept at breaking up the opponent’s plays, he will be sorely missed next year. Fred Cormell— Guard Fred, who alternated with Lee as a guard, proved to be a stonewall on defense. He played good, steady ball in every game and he was the line star of the Jefferson game. Eldridge Lee— Guard The running guard position was held down by one of the fastest and most accurate blockers ever to play for Salem High. Eldridge is one of the reasons why Coach Denton breaks into a smile when approached about the “thirty-seven eleven.” •C{ 66 p-
