Football (cont.) ANDREW LEWIS.14 DANVILLE. 6 The pepped-up Wolverines won their second straight game by scoring a decisive victory over a strong Danville team. Great work by the hard-charging Salem line was a big factor in the win. In the first half especially, the forward wall broke through so fast that the George Washington backs had little time to run, pass, or kick. The first Andrew Lewis score came when Sam Eubank blocked Belton’s punt and T. R. Barker recovered in the end zone. Eugene Snead scored the other I’D on a long pass from Buck Wright. The prettiest run of the game was called back by a penalty. Billy Young intercepted a George Washington pass and raced 60 yards down the sideline only to have it nullified by a clipping penalty. After the game the joyous players carried Coach Johnston off the field on their shoulders. Billy Young —Billy played wingback, and although he is quite small, he still played on both offense and defense. This was Billy’s third year as a letterman and his fight-to-the-finish spirit meant much to the Wolverines. Jim Candler —This was Jimmy’s first year on the Varsity. He played tackle and won the admiration of the team by showing such a good competitive spirit. Sam Eubank —Sammy was on the squad last year, but this was the first year as a letter- man. He played end and if he is eligible to play next year should develop into a star. Otis Reynolds —Otis improved consider¬ ably during the year and gained some valuable experience which will help him next year. He played tackle.

Ray Watson —Although “Hots” was in¬ jured and unable to play most of the year, he was the high scorer of the team with twenty-four points. “Hots” played tailback and did all of the punting. This was his third year as a letterman. Buck Wright —Buck, an outstanding back with speed and determination was honored at the end of the season by being selected for the All- Western District Team, and the All-City-County Team. This was his third year as a letterman. Eugene Snead —Buddy, the fastest man on the team this year, played end. Due to injuries he had to drop off the squad after the Lane game, and his loss definitely hurt the team. This was his second year as a letterman. Marshall Mundy —This was Marshall’s last year for the blue and white. His will to win was a boost to the team. He played end and his spot will be hard to fill. This was his second year as a letterm an. Football ANDREW LEWIS.29 BLACKSBURG. o The Andrew Lewis Wolverines opened their 1951 season by running roughshod over Blacksburg in Christiansburg. Ray Watson was the offensive star for the Blue and White as he broke away for two scoring runs—the first from 15 yards out and the next from the Blacksburg 20. Late in the third quarter Billy Young took a reverse on the 50 and raced all the way for a touchdown. Eugene Firebaugh scored the last touchdown by plunging 4 yards. Ted Barker, Marshall Mundy, Frank Chapman, and Walt Dearing, who kicked 3 extra points, stood out in the line. Young, Ed Talley, Watson, and Ed Ferguson were standouts in the backfield. Hold, on, big Wolverine

No-Man Hop Football (cont.) ANDREW LEWIS.13 THOMAS JEFFERSON.... 20 Thomas Jefferson ran into a band of fighting Wolverines from Andrew Lewis and were lucky to escape with a 20-13 victory. Salem scored first when Ray Watson took a TJ punt and made an 85-yard twisting, turning, runback for the TD. In the third quarter Alonza Philpott picked up a fumble by TJ’s Ron Hebner and raced 18 yards for the second score. Had it not been for injuries to three keymen, Tailback Ray Watson, Guard T. R. Barker, and End Marshall Mundy, the game might have ended quite differently. None of these were able to play in the second half. Walter Dearing —“Junior” was chosen co-captain of the team. His fine playing and sportsmanship won for him the Sportsmanship Award, and a position on the All-Western District Team. This was his third year as a letterman. Tommy Dooley —This was Tommy’s first year on the Varsity. He played end and probably improved more than any other player on the squad during the year. Ed Ferguson —Ed played blocking back and stood out in every game. He was hurt in the Jefferson game and his not being able to play the rest of the year was felt by the team.
