The faces of the spectators reveal the excitement of a football game as the band plays a lively tune. Stepping high, the majorettes lead the band in some figures during the half-time. Kellogg Hunt (24) has only one op¬ ponent between him and the goal line and the way his teammate Jim Candler (41) is moving in, it looks as if he won’t be there long. Luther Garrett (14) and Ronnie Johnson (25) assist in the background. Two of Andrew Lewis’s three Johnsons stand at the edge of the field during a game. “Little Hal,” the team’s mascot and son of our coach, and Ronnie, varsity tackle, represent the future and present of the Wolverine Team. Andrew Lewis players clear the way for Kellogg Hunt as he runs for a first down in the Covington game. Excitement mounts in the stands as a Andrew Lewis guard recovers a fumble on the 45 yard line. Between halves of the Andrew Lewis and Danville game, our five charming majorettes take time out to pose for this photograph. Kellogg Hunt (24) carries to the 35 yard line of Covington before the Cougars can stop him. Jerry Frank (43) can be seen in the background after blocking his man. We’re with you team! The stands are filled with enthusiastic fans as the Wol¬ verines roll on to victory at Municipal Field. { 82

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.

Milan Christley halts a Jefferson player on the 30 yard line as Curtis Snyder rushes to assist with the tackle.

Left to Right: Carol Boley, Shirley Eubank, Peggy Stone, Carole Stroupe, Libby Foster, Georgia Crawford, Nancy Donaldson, Shirley Thomas, Carole Matthews, Phyllis Batten, Oceile Hall, head cheerleader, Eddie Peveral, Linda Johnston, mascots Oceile Hall and Mrs. Hood worked together to further the interest of the cleerleaders. As a very co-operative sponsor, she has served as an intermediary between the school and cheer¬ leaders and helped the girls through many difficulties. CHEERLEADERS One of the most important factors in school life is school spirit, and during this winning season, the Andrew Lewis cheerleaders have worked hard to keep that spirit alive among the students. They led their team through many difficult moments, ever rallying behind them. For the first time in the history of Andrew Lewis cheerleaders, they functioned much as any other school club might. Early in the football season, they sponsored an after-the-game hop with the boys of the Monogram Club. Cheerleaders baked the cakes and cookies, made candy, and prepared the other foods that were sold at intermission. With this money, they were able to purchase new basketball uni¬ forms to use this year and to pass down to next year’s girls. The squad spent much time preparing for the football and basketball games. They revised old yells and made new ones to fit the assemblies and games in which they took part. Theirs has not been an easy job but it has been full of good times and enjoyment! Fifteen “rahs” to the cheerleaders for a very successful year! This customary huddle marks the end of the game as the cheerleaders stamp out “ 15 rahs” for the team. The Andrew Lewis cheerleaders and mascots add much to the excit ement and spirit of the football games with their rousing cheers and yells. Are you ready? The cheerleaders have a practice session so that they can lead Salemites in cheers at the games.
