Football team was coached by Mr. Crawford. Under his excellent coaching the Wolverines had a 2-2 season, and several of the boys showed so much improvement that they were moved to the varsity squad. The Wolverines opened their gridiron season against a strong Byrd team. Byrd scored on a pass during the second quarter and when the game ended the score was 6-0, Byrd. The next week the small but scrappy Andrew Lewis team moved in to play the Troutville giants. The Wolverines were sparked by the outstanding line play of Chandler and Reynolds. The heavy and more experienced Troutville team pushed over two touch¬ downs and was successful in the try for points. The following week, Andrew Lewis again played Byrd. Firebaugh bulled his way for two touchdowns, and during the fourth quarter Jess Chapman caught a Byrd man with a bruising tackle for a safety to end the game with the score standing 14-0. The last game was with Jefferson and the Wolverines were able to down the Jeffites with the score standing 6-0. Ellers caught a pass from Firebaugh during the last quarter and galloped over for the only score. When the gridiron season was over, it was easy to look back and see how the team had produced two outstanding linemen, Chandler and Reynolds, and the passing combi¬ nation of Ellers and Firebaugh stood out. 4 85 )

CHEERLEADERS ' ■AC Left to Right: Doris Smith, Kitty Obenshain, Sue Powell, Phyllis Bandy, Joyce Plymale, Mary Alice Woods (Head Cheerleader), Shirley Garst, Martha Good win, Betty Compton , Annette Garst, Jennie Smiley. The 1950-51 Season of Cheerleading whizzed by. We cheerleaders had just begun to yell, and then the season ended. We want to thank all the students who helped us support our team. And we wish everyone would help us give “15 big rahs,” for Airs. Houchens, our sponsor. She did a wonder¬ ful job and deserves a great deal of credit. The big, “ Blue Team ” tried hard to “Alake that Score,” while we were all yelling for dear old “Andrew Lewis.” We had the “Pep, Steam, Coach, and Team” to make this season one that is worth remembering. “North, East, South and West,” we are always meeting some other cheerleaders that become life long friends. We “ Locomotived ” to the out of town games and were received royally. These and many more memories will always be our treasures which “We Won’t” forget. It’s been a splendid year and we shall always be backing our school. We’re “Salem Born,” forever.

PHYSICAL These pictures illustrate a few of the various athletic activities which have taken place during the past year in the boys’ physical education classes. The gym classes are planned so that each boy gets individual instruction and experience in a number of sports. The main attraction during the fall is, of course, football, and under the coaching of Mr. Spruhan, Mr. Harless, and Mr. Crawford, every boy who wishes may learn to understand and enjoy this wonderful sport. As the year moves on the trend turns toward basketball, wrestling and volleyball. Under the proper in¬ struction, the boys not only learn to under¬ stand the games, but they also learn to enjoy participating in them. When spring comes, we all turn our thoughts to softball. The physical education classes play with all their hearts, and this leads to many a thrilling game, and, of course, locker room arguments after the games. About the most important thing that is instilled by the instructor is good sportsman¬ ship. Each boy is taught to play with all his heart, like any man should, but he is also taught to lose graciously. Physical Education truly fills a very important place in the school curriculum and is certainly enjoyed by all Andrew Lewis boys.
