The year 1945 saw Andrew Lewis field a hard-playing, but light and inexperienced team. With only one returning letter man from last year’s squad, the fighting Salem eleven gave a good account of itself on the gridiron. This squad never stopped trying to overcome its opponents, but could not always accomplish this goal. Despite the lack of brawn and “know how,” the Wolverines put up a game fight in all the contests and even surpassed the expectations of many Salem followers. FOOTBALL Guy Spruhan. Coach Dickie Bunting. Captain If one judges solely by the won and lost column, it was not such a successful season, but the players enjoyed the game and learned much about it. The “T” formation, which was used this year by Coach Spruhan, undoubtedly worked better than another would have due to the absence of heavy players on the team. Many of the boys will return next year with a year of experience behind them, and with the expected return of several players from the service, Andrew Lewis will be able to field a team which is wiser in the ways of the game. The players bearing the brunt of the tilts were: Backs, Dickie Bunting (Captain), Charlie Webber, Ray Caldwell, “Abe” Morris and Vance Cannaday; Ends, Ballard Wood, Joe Ray Burnett and Keith Edmunds, with “Pinkey” Wilbourne and James Welcher doing a great deal of able substituting; Tackles, George St. John, blunter Miller and Ballard Wood; Guards, Jack Rife, E. J. Miles, Court- land Spotts and Brent Huffman, and Center, David McClung. All these boys played a great brand of football, and with everything considered, they did a magnificent job, of which all students of Andrew Lewis may well be proud. r 901
