FORTY-FIVE FOOTBALL Despite all these difficulties and bad breaks, the team, led by Co-Captains Guy Spruhan, Jr., and Frank Shelor, worked hard, learned a great deal, and played good ball. The Co-Captains were both selected as City-County All Stars, and Andrew Lewis can well be proud of them and all the rest of the Wolverines. Andrew Lewis 19— William Byrd 13 The Wolverines opened their 1944 season with a win over a scrappy but out¬ played Vinton team. Spruhan scored twice for Salem, and Thomas plunged for the third touchdown. Although Byrd gave Salem a scare with their two touch¬ downs, the actual game was clearly a victory for Andrew Lewis. Andrew Lewis 16— William Fleming 7 The game started off just as the previous one with Salem marching for a touchdown by Spruhan early in the game; but Fleming came back and fought Salem to a standstill during the second and third quarters. Lewis began clicking again late in the game, but time ran out. Guy Spruhan’s extra point and the defensive play of Shelor and Kinsey were the leading factors in this victory for Andrew Lewis. •gf 63 b

THE PIONEER FOOTBALL Frank Shelor Guy Spruhan The Andrew Lewis Football Team of 1944, although not equal to some of the powerful Salem teams of the past, gave a good account of itself during the season. Coach Guy H. Spruhan, in his first year at Salem for many years, with the assistance of Jim Peters, a member of the Lewis faculty, turned out a fighting team that never knew when to die. Although greatly handicapped by lack of experience and reserves, the Wolve¬ rines knew how to take it and come back fighting. This, they proved many times during the season for “Lady Luck” never smiled toward Salem. The lack of experience was not too greatly shown by the first team as most of them had played the year before but there were hardly any experienced players among the few Salem reserves. And in a close, hard-fought game, this lack really showed. Salem and the nearby parts of the county really need a sandlot football program to compete with the other class A schools of the state. The Wolverines won victories over the other two county schools—William Byrd and William Fleming, and E. C. Glass of Lynchburg but lost to Portsmouth, Roanoke, and Danville. Two games—Christiansburg and Charlottesville, were called off because of rain and bad playing conditions. 02 L

THE PIONEER Football Season Andrew Lewis o—Portsmouth 6 When the Wolverines went on the Portsmouth field for this game, they were clearly the under¬ dogs; but when they came off, they had won a moral victory. Afost of the playing was in mid- field or better, and several times Salem drove deep into Woodrow Wilson territory only to lose the ball on downs or pass interceptions. Ports¬ mouth scored in the first half on a series of long runs; but after this, the game turned into a de¬ fensive battle. The entire team, especially Dave Miller and Spruhan looked great during this game which was easily the hardest fought and best game Salem played all year. Andrew Lewis 7—Jefferson 21 The score of this game tells the story. Salem fought hard, but Roanoke’s power and reserves were too much for the Wolverines. Andrew Lewis used all their plays and ability but could only score on a screen pass from Guy Spruhan to Bill Shaw, who ran about fifty yards for the touch¬ down. Salem completed some other nice passes but could not threaten Jefferson too seriously while sheer magician manpower rolled to three touchdowns. Andrew Lewis played good ball, but it was the same old story of too much Roanoke experience and reserve strength for the Wolve¬ rines. Guy Spruhan Back Ira Feazell Tackle Bill Kinzie Tackle H. R.
