It has been a real pleasure and privilege to be one of your coaches during this most successful season. I believe your success can be attributed to hard work, loyalty, clean play and the desire to win. To you, who are leaving I extend my sincere wishes for your continued success, and I hope the spirit you leave behind will be characteristic of future Andrew Lewis teams. Sincerely, Hal Johnston Coach Hal Johnston

Coachjohnston is shouting encourage¬ ment and instruction to the team as they play at Municipal Field. Kellogg Hunt and Jimmy Candler, our co-captains, meet with the Byrd co-cap¬ tains before the game, while the referees offer words of advice. Touchdown! The raised arms of referee signify another score for the Wolverines. Jerry Frank (43) looks on as teammates Ronnie Johnson (25), Jimmy Candler (41) and Wesley Frye (21) unscramble themselves from the pile of boys on the ground. For the first time in twelve years Andrew Lewis High School has been able to hold its head high in the football circles of the State. Coach Hal Johnston led his scrappy Wolverines to seven victories, including a 13-12 upset over George Washington of Danville; they were handed only three defeats, one of which was a 14-13 defeat by Jefferson High of Roanoke, our arch rival. The students feel, though defeated in score, that we came from Victory Stadium with a moral victory. The Wolverines have seldom played with such inspiration and determination as displayed that night. Walking off the field at halftime with a 13-7 lead, A. L. gave Jefferson the scare of the season. Another record the Wolverines can be proud of is that we were not de¬ feated on our home grounds, Municipal Field. Several of our players were placed on many of the all- star honor teams. Guard Jimmy Chandler and Center John Holliday made the All-State, All-Western District, and All-City-County teams, Halfback Ernie Sprouse gained an All-Western District berth, and End Glenn Parr was honored on the All-City-County team. A. L. is proud of these boys and all the boys who backed them up giving their all for the team and school. The teams of the future years are going to have to go a long way to equal the 1953 Wolverine squad. Schedule and Scores A. I . . 12 A. L. . 12 A. I . . 13 A. L. . 0 A. L. . 12—Wm. Fleming. . 6 A.
