VARSITY FOOTBALL G. H. Spruhan . Coach H. M. Copenhaver . Assistant Coach Marshall Robinson . Assistant Coach Preston Graves. . .Assistant Coach {Volunteer ) When the season opened on September i, eighty boys reported co practice. Eight lettermen returned from last year’s team. The boys spent the first two weeks scrimmaging and polishing up for the opening game against Bedford on September 13. This game, which Andrew Lewis won 20-7, gave needed experience to some of the amateur players. Our first test of the season was against powerful Thomas Jefferson of Richmond. The Presidents were out to avenge their 6-0 defeat at the hands of the Wolverines last year. Many of our students accompanied the players to Richmond to witness a thriller—ending in a 13-13 tie. The following week we lost to the strong team of Vinton—7-0. Our next game was played in a sea of mud against Lane High in Charlottesville. We scored on our first play and won the game 6-0. Then came ihe important game against our “featured” rival Jefferson. Roanoke had one of its best teams in years, and her power proved too much for the JVolverines. After a hard-fought game, Jefferson defeated us 22-0. Afterwards came successive defeats at the hands of Hampton, 26-0, Lynchburg, 19-0. Things looked bad for us for the Danville game. The team played one of its best games, however, tying the Cardinals, 0-0. The following week William Flem¬ ing scored on a long pass during the final four minutes to defeat Andrew Lewis 7-0. Even though we had few victories, the Andrew Lewis school spirit was really in the “limelight” and every “player” displayed fine sportsmanship in the games.
