1938 FOOTBALL With the able assistance and excellent advice of Mr. Peters, formerly of Wake Forest, to our already strong coaching staff composed of Mr. Denton, Gus Quisito and assisted by the return of eight letter men, Andrew Lewis made a remarkable showing this year in spite of the loss of Gus, who left us for a better job, in mid¬ season, and the wet fields and heavier teams that our boys had to face. The first game of the season was a 14 to o victory over William Fleming, fol¬ lowed by an upset from Newport News due to the fact that the Shipbuilders outweighed us and that they played one of the best games of their season.

accurate passing ability of the Newport News lads helped them to leave us holding the small end of 32 to o. Then came the tight game at Bluefield with Jim Brown’s accurate drop kick saving us by 3 to o. In spite of this victory it was a fatal day for us because many of our boys were hurt so badly that they could not play for several weeks; there¬ fore, we were defeated by Clifton Forge. The next game found us with a hard- fought victory over Charlottesville, due to the amazing defense of Capt. Bob Lambert and John Gleason who, we believe, will develop into one of the best line-backers in this part of the state. The following week we played the State Champions from Lynchburg. This was a very tight game, climaxed by a 77-yard run by Paul McGhee in the last minutes of the game, only to be called back because he stepped outside. Then the biggest tilt of the year—our annual fight with Jefferson. Led by Reynolds, Whitlock, and Marmaduke, the mud-caked Wolverines would have held the Magicians except for a fatal penalty that placed Jefferson too near our goal. The stout little line held as long as their endurance would allow them, but the Roanokers pushed over for a 7 to o win. Our only night game was dropped to Alexandria. The muddy field and the heavy weight of the Presidents was too much for our team who sank in defeat by 7 to o. Our ancient Roanoke County rivals, namely Vinton, were beaten with the totals reading 13 to o. The football schedule was brought to a close on November 19th with the smashing victory of 52 to 2 over Danville. This game not only gave a colorful ending to 1938 football; it placed new names, such as Bowman, in the lineup. Denton Peters
