LETTERMEN Billy Young Billy was another small back, but his hue calling of plays helped him break into the lineup many times. Walter Dearing When Dearing was called upon to fill some assign¬ ment, he could always be depended upon. He proved this on many occasions, such as the Lynchburg game when he chalked up the only Wolverine score. “Snookie” Elmore “Snookie” was one of the most dependable tacklers; he was constantly charging through the opponents’ line and throwing them for losses. Charles Webster Webster played center and did a fine job of it. His real value was not realized until late in the season, but then he came into his own and proved himself a real player. _ Vj - -• Bill Garst Bill was a hard-driving fullback and kicking specialist. His timely punts helped the Wolverines out of many holes and often kept the opposition in their own territory. 11 Eddie Tuttle About the time Eddie was hitting his stride, illness took him out of action. In the three games preceding his illness, he showed up especially well on defense. (Not Pictured) Norris Martin Whenever Norris broke into the lineup he could be depended upon to fill the assignments which he was given. Managers Mac Minnick Joe Stoutamire Earl Johnston

LETTERMEN “Kit” Kittinger “Kit” gave his all in each game. His ability and desire to win was a boost to the team. Capable in all phases of line work offensively and defensively, he was named co-captain of the second All-City-County Team. “Gopher” Snyder “Gopher” handled his guard position excep¬ tionally well. His amazing ability to sense opponents’ plays made him a standout on defense. Eddie Talley Eddie proved himself a reliable replacement and got to see plenty of action during the season. He stood out exceptionally well in his blocking assignments. Bill Rakes Bill’s defensive work at end was a decided strong point of the Wolverine line, and never was he to be outfought regardless of the odds. “Charlie” Wilbourne Leading the Wolverine scoring with 24 points, “Charlie” delighted the crowds with his fine runs. “ Bixpk” Wright Although “Buck” was small in size, he made up for this in his speed and was constantly breaking into jt ames of the se%6on. the lineup in t , r S AT f t 4 1 U 1 r “Red” Carter “Red” was the crowd pleaser with his many nice runs and fine plays. “Andy” Martin “Andy” was the biggest man on the squad, and was sent in on many goal line stands to strengthen the forward wall.

V PA 1 Li VARSITY FOOTBALL The Andrew Lewis football team started the season off with a bang by downing Fries Hi 51-0. The touchdown parade was led by Peters and Wilbourne, both of whom collected two. Garst, Carter, Black and Wright each collected one. The Wolverines traveled to Richmond for their next game. There they lost to the powerful T. J. team by the slight score of 20-12. The first Wolverine touchdown was made by Peters on a 54-yard pass from Black, and it was Garst who scampered across the goal line for the final TD. Then came an unexpected defeat at the hands of the Byrd Terriers, 14-0. Both TD’s were due to Wolverine miscues. The following week we witnessed a “nip and tuck” game with Fleming which ended in a tie, 0-0. Finally the Wolverines were able to take advantage of their opponents’ mistakes, and did to the best advantage by downing Lane of Charlottesville, 12-6. First it was Wilbourne who went around end to score; then Kittinger blocked a punt, and Baker gathered in the ball and raced to pay dirt. Next on the schedule came the long-awaited game with Jefferson. The team fought hard throughout the entire game, but was no match for the heavier and more experienced Magicians who made the final score read 35-0. On the night of October 28th the Wolverines lost to Hampton 20-0 in a hard-fought battle in the “Mud Bowl,” and the following week they lost to the powerful Hilltoppers of Lynchburg by a 44-6 margin. In the final game of the season, the Wolverines edged the Cardinals of Danville, 9-7 in one of the most exciting games that they played. The entire team should be congratulated for outstanding play and sportsmanship, for it takes a group of players working together to produce a real team, and that is just what the A. L. players did. 4 122 } THE PIONEER
