tf-ootball John Gleason, Captain To the Faculty and Students We wish to thank the faculty and the student body as a whole for the fine support given the football team. It is you that made it possible for us to have a team. To the Coaches Coach Denton, with the able assistance of Coach Thompson, did a mighty fine job of turning out the strongest team the Wolverines have had in some years. Coach Jim Peters, now in school at V. P. I., assisted in coaching the backfield early in the season. To the Players We must give due credit to those boys who actually made up the team. There was plenty of hard work, bruises, sore muscles, mixed up with the glory of winning on Satur¬ days. To let you know that Saturday was not the only day the football team worked, we give you an account of what is back of the strength of the team—in short, hard work.

September 2 to 14 Few of the students remember September 2, 1940, as vividly as the members of the football squad. We reported early that morning ready for practice. Every one in the dressing room was in an uproar, complaining about one piece of the equipment or the other. After quite a struggle the hoys were all ready for the first drill of the season. We ran our customary two laps and had our regular calisthenics and then the real work began. Coach Denton introduced the tackling and blocking dummies to linemen and, no doubt, they knew the old fellows pretty well before the day was over. Coach Thompson and Coach Peters had the backs and ends working on passing, side¬ stepping and kicking and in order not to slight the ends they were introduced to the dummies. After what was termed an easy morning, we headed for the showers, only to receive the cheering news to return at 2 o’clock that afternoon. All the boys returned for practice that evening with some muscles and countless aches and pains. The aches and pains were soon forgotten out in that hot September sun, as the boys went through their regular drill. These drills continued until about the fourth day; it was then we received our fundamental plays and began our real football. Running our plays and becoming in better physical condition each day, we were now ready for our first scrimmage. With plenty of hard work, we were now shaping into a football team. Im¬ proving our timing of plays and drilling on defense, we were soon ready to meet our first foe. On that Saturday, September 14, all the boys were anxious to put on those new blue uniforms and, with a feeling that only one who has played football can describe, we went to the field. ANDREW LEWIS 41, BEDFORD o The referee blew the whistle and the season of ’40 had Garrett and McCallum, Incoming Co-Captains really begun. Salem kicked off to Bedford, and in the next few plays, Richard Fisher, guard, recovered a Bed¬ ford fumble on the 15- yard line. On the fourth down Jack Wilbourne faded and tossed a pass to Captain Johnny Glea¬ son, who crossed the goal line for the first score. Richard Haskins, the boy with the educated toe, kicked the extra point. The mighty Wolverines, mixing, running and pass¬ ing plays equally well, scored at least once in { 1 !) K F
