LEWIS CHEER LEADERS Crawford, Holdrcn, Ferris, Garnett, M. Wygal, ]. Wygal, Williamson James, Haider, Kimmerling tf-bO-thcdl each of the remaining quarters and added four extra points. The entire squad of Coach Denton’s boys saw action in the game. The following week we ironed out the rough spots in the plays and added a few new ones. With great hopes of winning, we left for the coast on Thursday, to encounter the “Ty¬ phoons” of Newport News. ANDREW LEWIS 6, NEWPORT NEWS 19 The Wolverines went on the field that Friday night confident of winning. It seems that the Wolverines just couldn’t click and the Newport News “Typhoons” crossed our goal line three times. In the third quarter, Jack Wilbourne made a spectacular run of eighty yards only to be stopped short of the goal line. In the fourth quarter, the Wolverines, now beginning to click, took the kick¬ off and in successive plays drove sixty yards into scoring position. Rufus Bowman, in a play wide to the left, went over for the score. Rather disappointed, we returned for another week of drilling and with the same dominating spirit of winning we were ready for the next game. ANDREW LEWIS 44, COVINGTON 7 The Wolverines, to redeem their defeat of the week before and to prove their strength, really romped on Covington. Salem counted one touchdoAvn in each of the first time quarters. In the second quarter Covington scored their only touchdown. In the third, Salem reached their peak with 19 points. In the fourth Rufus Bowman intercepted a pass and raced 70 yards for a score. No doubt, without that strong, ever-charging line, the outcome of this game would have been different. By this victory we hoped to restore the students’ confidence in us. The following Friday we were again ready for a tilt. ANDREW LEWIS 47, WILLIAM FLEMING 7 Again we saw the mighty Wolverines go into action, and what action, with the team scoring at least once in each quarter. Coach Denton used his entire squad of players, and it looked as if they just didn ' t know when to stop scoring. The William Fleming score came in the last quarter of the game, against an entire team of substitutes. Another victory for the Wolverines is now on the books.

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

Gaskins Loop Shelor Starkey Bowles King McCluer With valuable experience being gained each week, it seemed that no team was to stop the strong Wolverines. ANDREW LEWIS 33, LANE HI o By the looks of the above score, the Wolverines had another field day. Seeking revenge for the defeat of Andrew Lewis’ crippled last year team, nothing could stop that powerful Wolverine line and their spedy, hard-hitting backs. The two ends of Salem’s eleven, Bob Jett and Harold Keith, played outstanding games, they continually stopped plays around end and were in the Lane Hi backfield a good part of the time. With all the boys playing heads-up ball, Coach Denton was very well pleased with his team’s victory. The following week we had light work-outs and, after the previous crushing defeat, we were due a rest. The follo wing Monday we were back at our regular drills, preparing for our old rivals of Roanoke. ANDREW LEWIS 15, JEFFERSON 7 With perfect weather for this traditional battle with Jefferson, the Woolverines invaded Roa¬ noke. Before a large crowd, the Salem eleven went on the field with the will to win. In the first period of play, punts were exchanged freely between Harry Walton, of Jefferson, and Jack Wil- bourne, of Salem. It was in the last of the first period that Salem started its first touchdown drive. Bowman gained five, Haskins added five more for first down. Bowman was stopped at the line and Wilbourne, side-stepping two tacklers, completed a pass to Bowman on the Jefferson 25 as the first period ended. Haskins gained five through center, Garrett picked up two and on the third Wilbourne passed to Gleason for a score. Haskins booted the return point. Wilbourne made a nice 20-yard run but was stopped on the Jefferson 27. Failing to gain, Wilbourne kicked over the goal line. The charging Salem line drove into Jef¬ ferson and tackled Wal¬ ton back of the goal for safety. Salem had 9 to o at the half. Shortly after the kick¬ off in the third, the entire Salem line sifted through the Jefferson forward wall and hit Walton hard, causing him to fumble. Wyatt Corbin fell on the ball for a Salem score. The placement was wide. Jefferson scored their { 51 } The Tilt with Jefferson
