Football Season Jefferson o—Andrew Lewis o Next the Wolverines went to Roanoke to meet their old rivals, the Jefferson Magicians, on a wet field at Victory Stadium. Both teams were “up” for the game, which turned out to be a scoreless tie. Almost the entire student body of Andrew Lewis was present to cheer for the Blue team and exhibited wonderful school spirit. The two teams battered each other up and down the field for most of the game and only once did either team reach a scoring position. During those tense minutes the Wolverines’ Charley Webber received a pass and ran to the Jefferson io-yard stripe. The Wolverines failed to score, however, and the game ended in a deadlock. Both teams played outstanding ball and we may rightfully be proud of each one of our boys for the game he played. Hampton 26—Andrew Lewis o Traveling to Hampton after a week’s rest, the Wolverines met the Crabbers, who without a doubt had the better team. This was the first time that any team had crossed the line to pay dirt thus far in the season. Dickie Bunting, who made a record for himself on defensive as well as offensive, kept the Wolverines in the game all the way. Although beaten, the boys played hard until the final whistle. Lynchburg 14—Andrew Lewis o Coming down from Lynchburg, that big husky team started the game off with a touchdown on the opening kickoff. After a hard-fought battle the Glass eleven scored another one. This was a good game with both teams doing excellent defen¬ sive work. The Wolverines played well, but could not over¬ come the Hilltoppers. Danville 13—Andrew Lewis 7 After taking the trip to Danville for the afternoon game, the Wolverines fought one of their most outstanding battles of the year. The first half was played on even terms, while both teams scored. The half ended in favor of the Salem eleven by one point. After the rest period the Danville squad crossed the line (to pay dirt) for the last score of the game. Andrew Lewis threatened several times, but failed to make the zone. (The team has made a record for itself of which it may be proud for some time to come). [99 1 4

Football Season Bedford o—Andrew Lewis 32 Despite the heavy rain, the Wolverines opened the season with an easy 32-0 victory over the Bedford Otters. Dickie Bunting plunged over for two touchdowns. He was assisted in this by Clarence Maberry, Charley Webber, and a newcomer, “Skeeter” Hesmer, who scored one each. Shelor and Graybill kicked the extra points. However, the “team” won the game and there is praise for all. Thomas Jefferson o—A ndrew Lewis 6 In the second game of the season, Andrew Lewis defeated the strong Thomas Jefferson eleven of Richmond 6-0. Again it was Co-Captain Dickie Bunting who plunged over in the final quarter for the hard-fought victory. With Charley Webber’s passing, “Skeeter” Hesmer’s tackling and the run¬ ning of all three, Andrew Lewis truly deserved the victory that it won. Byrd o—A ndrew Lewis 6 This score was slightly disappointing to the Wolverines but the Byrd team was a little stronger than we had antici¬ pated. In the third quarter one of the Byrd men fumbled behind his own goal and when the confusion was over, Frank Shelor was found to be covering the ball. This score was all we needed for a victory. The Byrd men set up a passing defense in the final quarter which brought cheers from the crowd but it failed to produce a score. William Fleming o—A ndrew Lewis 32 This game was played before a large crowd on Municipal Field and was one of the Wolverines’ best games. Our boys wanted to avenge their defeat at the hands of Fleming last year and they certainly did. The boys from Williamson Road fought hard, but they were no match for the Wolverines. Fleming made only one first down through the hard-charging Lewis line, while our boys opened huge holes in Fleming’s defense. However it was a good, hard-fought game all the way. Lane High o—A ndrew Lewis 34 Another defeat of last year was avenged by the Wolverines in this game against Charlottesville. Our boys simply couldn’t be stopped by Lane. Running up a high score was not our aim, but our offensive power reached its peak in this and the Flem¬ ing game. Lane couldn’t get its attack started and the Wolve¬ rines’ unscored-on record was kept clean. All the boys in blue played a fine brand of football and the game was a good one for both spectators and players. [ 98 ]
