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

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

JUNIOR VARSITY FOOTBALL T 7 -i — Completing their season with a record of three wins and a single defeat, the Andrew Lewis Jayvee football team fielded a hard-hitting ball club. Several of the boys showed that they are capable of seeing a lot of service for the varsity next year. The only defeat the Little Wolverines suffered was at the hands of the undefeated William Fleming Junior Varsity by a 12-6 score. The charges of Coach Herbert Copenhaver defeated the Jefferson Juniors twice, 27-0 and 14-0. The other win was over St. Andrew’s by a count of 12-6. Two able tackles—George Gearhart and Alonzo Philpott—end Ruble Smith and guard Ed Ferguson proved to be the line standouts for the Little Blue and White. Smith was especially outstanding as a pass receiver and was used in the backfield on occasions. Philpott, Ferguson and Gearhart are still regarded as fine defensive linemen. The Lewis backfield was spearheaded by Walter Dearing and Eddie Talley. The pair did most of the team’s running and their ability gave notice that they will be heard from next season on the varsity squad. 4 123 } NINETEEN FIFTY
