1938 Football To Mr. Denton we owe whatever success our athletic teams may have achieved for the past eleven years. Even during the “lean” years, with poor material to work with, he turned out teams of which Andrew Lewis was ever proud, for their fine sportsmanship and clean, fighting spirit. We, zvho have been associated with him, join together in expressing appre¬ ciation for his faithful work. U NDER the able coaching of Mr. Denton and Gus Quisito, the Andrew Lewis football team had one of the most successful seasons of recent years. The season started off with a 47 to 0 massacre of Christiansburg, followed by another triumph, a 19 to 6 victory over Graham High. This was an especially meaningful event, due to the fact that Graham had not been defeated or scored on in two years. Then came two heart-breaking, one-point defeats at the hands of Clifton Forge and Lynchburg, defeats in which the runback of a kick-off and an intercepted pass scored the de¬ cisive points. The squad took its first trip to play Charlottesville, whom they defeated by the score of 2 to 0, a score that belied the real nature of the game. Andrew Lewis moved deep into Char¬ lottesville’s territory many times but just didn’t seem to have the extra punch needed to score. Then came that eventful day, October 30th, at Maher Field, the climax of the season—the smashing victory over Jefferson—the victory that every member of the squad knew would be ours. The small, light line of Wolverines, fighting like demons, dropped the Magician backs in their tracks again and again. Lewis hung tenaciously to an early lead until the final whistle. The game was won by excellent playing on the part of every member of the team. We took the only scoring opportunity and scored. There were no passes, which was unexpected for Jefferson. Jim Brown, with the other members blocking furiously for him, made it possible for Bruce Whitlock to cough up the only touchdown of the day with a thrilling twenty-yard gallop across the Magicians’ goal line. The following Saturday the squad (mostly the “subs”) defeated Vinton to the tune of 20 to 6. The last games with Portsmouth and Danville were not so successful as to scores, but were well- fought games. The ’38 football year, as a whole, has been a rather gratifying one.
