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

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. Also the

FOOTBALL VARSITY Katz G. Poff C. Poff McDaniel Whitlock Wood Reynolds Crowder Marmaduke Lambert Brown Captain Watson Cormell Fisher McGhee 1. John Gleason— 5 ' 10 " —160 “Pretty Boy,” one of the most promising backs in the state, was equally excellent on defense as well as offense. 2. Van Wood— 5 ' 11 " —155 Jefferson’s loss was our gain. Always ready when the going was tough, Van will be sorely missed next year. 3. Preston Reynolds—5 ' 11 " —150 Due to a broken shoulder Preston did not see as much action as should have been his. His ability as a triple-threat man earned him the responsibility of co-captain of next year’s squad. 4. Leon Crowder—5 ' 6| " —132 As fine a reserve back as Andrew Lewis has ever produced. His experience in seeing action in every game should enable him to be a valuable asset to Wake Forest. 5. Bob Saul— Manager 6. Hubert Whitlock—5 ' 7”—151 Small but one of the fastest backs that has ever played for Andrew Lewis. “Little Man” always pulled the squad out when their spirits were low. 7. Pete Holdren—5 ' 10”—145 We are looking forward to Pete’s outstanding passing ability to lead us to victory next year. 8. Gorman Poff— s ' 8”—150 A reserve plugger who held down the guard post faithfully. Gorman graduated at mid¬ term. 9. Fred Cormell— s ' 8”—155 Fred, a first string guard, really earned his position for four years due to his great blocking and pile-driving. 10. Jim Brown—5 ' 6 " —135 The toughest red head that has ever played for Salem High School. “The Mighty Mite” will be a great loss to the 1939 squad. 11. Harold Garrett—5 ' 7 ”—150 “Admiral” will be a mainstay in the back- field next year. His superb passing, kicking and power in plunging the line will surely find him a berth. 12. Paul Foley —5 " 11 " —160 Foley, a reserve lineman who helped hold the wall in some of our great battles, will be playing the same clean football next year. 13. Walton Bowles —5 ' 9”—145 A steady running mate who was moved in from the backfield to relieve Brown at guard. We will be watching for him next year. 14. Rufus Bowman —5 ' 9”—135 “Roots,” probably one of the lightest men on the team, is one of the reasons why Coach breaks into a smile when approached about the ’39 eleven. 15. Harold Keith —5 ' 10 " —155 Another dependable reserve who helped Mc¬ Ghee at the wing position. He should be a first string next year. 16. Lewis Surface —5 ' 8”—145 A sturdy little center who shared the honors with Watson at the pivot position. 17. G. C. Watson —5 ' 7 " —137 Short but tough, “George” filled Dan Hurdle’s shoes to a “T” at center. V. P. I. will probably see action from him in the next few years. 18. Jack Dame — Manager 19. Jack Wilbourne —5 ' 10”—155 Jack’s good sportsmanship and steady play¬ ing in the backfield will make him an invaluable cog in the next year’s team. 20. Paul McGhee —5 ' 10”—160 “Mac,” who has played two years of varsity football will be undoubtedly missed from the ’39 lineup. He graduates this year. 21. Robert Lambert —5 ' 10”—170 “Apey, ” the youngest football captain in the history of the school proved himself ably in the leadership of his team. He is one that won’t be forgotten. 22. Richard Fisher —5 ' 7”—185 The heaviest man in the line, “Square’s” love of personal contact will make him a precious possession of next year’s squad. He proved his popularity by being elected co-captain of the ’39 lineup.
