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

" 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.

THEY SHOOT ' EM HIGH AND LOW BASKET BALL STAFF D. E. DENTON Varsity Coach J. E. PETERS Junior Varsity Coach FRANCIS WRIGHT Manager ■ W - f YA M 1 W A, , Basket Ball " Shots " Directly at left is the squad. From left to right are, first row: Harold Shelor, Bernard Graybill, Rufus Bowman, D. J. Showalter. Second row: Lawrence Reynolds, B. G. King, Bob Jett, Howard Wimmer. Third row: D. E. Denton, coach, Bobbie Peters, Howard Barnett, Richard Fisher, Francis Wright, manager. At lower left is an action shot taken in the game with Lexington, which we won, 28-27. R. Bowman and P. Reynolds led with 7 and 6 points, respectively. On the page at right, the top left photo shows the Junior Varsity squad. From left to right, front row: J. Sherrard, A. Ruth, N. Thompson, W. Guthrie, D. Williams, D. Rusher, R. Journell, B. Powers. Second row: B. Slusser, P. Smith, M. Tingle, T. Keys, C. Henderlite, T. Collins, B. Gar¬ rett, F. Stevens, Mr. J. E. Peters, coach. Third row: R. Hinchie, G., Cornett, W. Bradford, E. Baker, B. Williams, P. Hudgins. The top right snapshot shows a portion of that memorable contest in which we took the meas¬ ure of Jefferson, 21-17. Bowman and Showalter led the attack with eight points each. Jett played a good defensive game, holding the Jefferson center scoreless. In the middle left snap there ' s a mad scramble for the ball in the Rocky Mount game. Shelor led the way with 14 points. We had to use white jerseys because our blue jerseys conflicted with theirs. The photo at middle right shows a part of the Danville encounter, which, besides the Jefferson game, of course, was probably the most thrilling one played here last year. In the last few minutes of play, the lead changed hands about four or five times. They were leading 30-29 with about 30 seconds to play. The ball was in our possession; Jett was standing under the basket; he nonchalantly pivoted and flipped the ball in the hoop for the two points that won the ball game. Yes—we won, 31-30! The bottom photograph on the right-hand page is one taken in the early part of November. These boys profited greatly by practicing dur¬ ing the football season. The basket ball season was more successful this year than it has been in a long period of time. We won eleven games and lost nine. Although this is nothing to brag about, it ' s good to note that most of our losses were by small margins. If nothing else, the crushing defeat of Jefferson —the first time in the history of Andrew Lewis High School—made ours a very successful season!
