" NO LINE CAN We score in the Lynchburg game Plenty of action in the Fleming game Andrew Lewis 7, Lynchburg 7 Against a highly-favored Lynchburg team the Wolverines won as fine as a victory when we held the Glassmen to a 7 to 7 tie. Although there was no score in the first quarter, all playing was fought in Lynchburg territory. The second was our big quarter. Preston Rey¬ nolds flung a pass to Harold Garrett in the end zone for the lone tally; Reynolds beautifully drop-kicked that precious point through the uprights. Glass came back in the third quarter to score on a long pass, then, unfortunately for us, to get the extra point. The fourth quarter, although exciting, was scoreless. Andrew Lewis 26, William Fleming 7 There is really not much to say about this game—the score seems to tell the whole story. The Wolverines, scoring in each of the four periods, clearly showed their superiority over the Fleming lads. The boys from Williamson Road scored their only touchdown in the last quarter against the reserves. Andrew Lewis 9, Roanoke College Freshmen 12 The gallant Wolverines threw scare after scare into the defenses of the Roanoke College Freshmen before submitting to defeat. In the first period, after taking Reynolds ' 45- yard boot, the Baby Maroons started from their own 35 and, on a sustained drive sparked by Rotkewicz, Hale crashed over from the three. Standing on his own 20, Reynolds booted a long rolling punt which was downed on the Roanoke 11. Mauch, Maroon booter, attempted to punt one from his own goal line, but Fisher, who played a bang-up game in the forward wall with Jett, Hodges and Johnson, rushed in to block the kick. The ball bounded into the end zone, giving us an automatic safety. The score read 6-2 against us. In the second period, Hale, intercepting one of Reynolds ' passes on his own 35, drove about 15 yards down the field and, faced with three Wolverine tacklers, lateraled the pigskin to Rotkewicz, who raced the remaining 50 yards for the Maroon touchdown. Score, 2-12. After the half, we came back strong; but we didn ' t score until the last period. After a short Roanoke boot had been carried by Rufus Bowman to the 33, Reynolds got his passing arm working. He dropped back to the 40-yard line and threw a long one to Bowman, who snagged the pigskin on the 16 and zig¬ zagged through the Maroon secondary for Sa¬ lem ' s only touchdown. Score, 9-12. After Bowman had counted, Lewis made a desperate effort to score again. Taking the ball on our own 20, Salem ' s passing ace tossed a 10- yard heave to Johnny McClure, who galloped 20 yards to midfield. Another pass to Bowman was good for 20 yards; he pulled a second heave from Reynolds for nine yards. The next pass, being intercepted, put the game on ice for the freshmen.

WHITE CO-CAPTAIN PRESTON REYNOLDS " Burr ' the most talked of boy in these parts last year, always came through with his top- notch performances. He was chosen on the second All-State team (many thought he should have made the first). We hate to lose ' ' Pres ' ' and his triple- threat ability. First row: Reynolds, Fisher, Bordin, Hodges, Surface, Johnston, McCallum, Foley. Second row: Hall, Katz, Haupt, Keith, Bowles, Dame, Wright. Third row: Hudgins, Spencer, Brown, Phillips, Ramsey, Peters, Saul Andrew Lewis 14, Charlottesville 19 The Wolverines, still in a slump, went to Charlottesville, only to lose a heart-breaker to Lane Hi. Lane, revengeful for our having beaten them the two previous years, started strong by scoring in the first quarter. They scored again in the second and third quarters before we got hold of ourselves. After intermission, we came back much stronger and more determined. They kicked off to us. We then started from our thirty which went to their forty. From there Reynolds tossed a short pass to Bowman, who reached the twenty. He tried a pass to Ralph Peters, only to have it intercepted. In the fourth quarter, we put on the steam. Reynolds threw a twenty-yard pass to Letcher Philpott, who ran forty yards to score. After that, aided by Garrett ' s good running, we marched down the field, where Reynolds scored. If the boys had gotten started in the first quarter instead of the fourth, we would have easily defeated Lane, of Charlottesville. Andrew Lewis 32, Vinton 0 The score seems to tell the whole story! The Wolverines, disgusted with themselves in the two previous games, rose up in their mighty powe r and brutally trounced the hapless William Byrd team from Vinton. There were too many scores to go into detail about. Rey¬ nolds, as usual, was the big gun in the Wolverines ' offense, scoring twice himself and passing to Philpott and Garrett for two more. Jack Wilbourne showed classy ball-carrying when he crashed through a gaping hole in his own right guard and raced 55 yards in excellent style to score the first time Lewis got its hands on the ball. Yes, sir, we really played ball that day! Andrew Lewis 19, Danville 0 The Salemites ended a good season of football in a blaze of glory by walloping the helpless Danville eleven. Preston Reynolds led the onslaught for the Wolverines by scoring two of the three touchdowns and by drop-kicking one extra point. In the second quarter, with the ball resting on the 30-yard line, Reynolds cut off left tackle and dashed 70 yards for the initial score. In the third period, Reynolds came back for another tally, bucking 21 yards in seven rushes (going over from the seven- yard stripe), after Gleason had recovered a fumbled lateral. Rufus Bowman scored the third and final touchdown in the early minutes of the fourth stanza when he pulled in a short pass from Reynolds and raced 30 yards for the score. Again in the fourth quarter, Bowman intercepted a Dan¬ ville pass on their 35, eluded would-be tacklers, but was finally brought down on the two-yard line. Coach Denton said that John Gleason and Wyatt Corbin played the best game of their football careers against Danville. We won five games, lost four and tied one last season and, with 23 lettermen returning, I know we all expect a better season next year.

STOP OUR MEN " As always with Andrew Lewis teams, the 1939 squad kept up the tradition of sportsmanship and clean fighting that has become a by-word among our opponents. The score might ' be 13 to 6 against them, as it was in the last quarter with Jefferson, or it might be a 7 to 7 tie with but a few minutes left to play, but always the team fought as hard as it could and as well as it could until the final whistle blew. This spirit, in the long run, is far more important than winning an extra game or two. The Wolverines fight gallantly against the Roanoke College freshmen Andrew Lewis 6, Jefferson 13 The big day, October 7, and we met our age- old rival—Jefferson. We had the biggest turnout of students at that game we ' d ever had before. Some 900 attended! Yes, sir, we had the real ' ' Salem Hi Spirit " that day; we had equally as good a team as Jefferson, the only thing we lacked was reserve power. Dick DeShazo was all they said he was—he scored both of Jefferson ' s touchdowns. Big John Gleason and Preston Reynolds were the guns in our attack. We smothered the Jeffs the first half. In the first period, dead-eye Reynolds hurled two passes to Letcher Philpott, which put us deep in enemy territory. Reynolds then tossed one to Gleason, who caught the ball over the goal line for the score. Reynolds ' goal was nullified due to a holding penalty. In the third quarter, dashing Dick DeShazo led a drive that netted a score. Martin kicked the goal that put them ahead. In the final stanza, DeShazo ' s running and passing ability again led the way to the final Magician touchdown and the winning of the game. The biggest game of the year—the red jerseys tell the whole story
