Blocking, Tackling, Passing, Kicking . . . took to the air and beat us 28-6. Then on October 29 the Wolverines and the team from Fairfax battled to a 6-6 tie. After this we met and edged out the Glass team of Lynchburg 7-6. Andrew Lewis wound up the season by rolling over Covington in an impressive 39-25 win. Scoring for Andrew Lewis were Norton, Lough, Beason, and Perry. Although we did not have a winning season, there were many individual gains and awards.

All City-County were Norton, Christley, and Parr; All Western District was Norton; Second Team All State were Christley and Parr; All State Honorable Mention was Kenny Norton, first in total points scored in City-County and fourth in the State.

Quarterback Billy Myers picks up a first down against Thomas Jefferson as our men block out tacklers. Ashton Lough moves in on Teejay ' s would-be ground gainer as Rex Mitchell rushes up to call the play. " Down you go " shout Richmond ' s mighty eleven as they converge on halfback Kenny Norton during the action-packed first half. William Byrd ' s entire team seems to be getting into the act as Lewis ' s ball carrier is stopped after a long gain.

Greeting The Opponent Waiting For The Kick-off CAPTAIN PARR and ALTERNATE CAPTAIN NORTON greet their opposing captains, St. Clair and McDonald from William Byrd, in the customary pre-game ceremony as the referees confer in the background. The football team fielded by Andrew Lewis this past fall had the distinction of being the youngest Group I team in the State as well as the youngest ever to repre¬ sent the high school. To start the season, the Wolverines met " What ' s happening out there " wonders Coach Hal John¬ son as little Hal and his team stand ready for action. and conquered the Group I Blacksburg squad with only two men, from the starting line-up, back from last year’s Varsity team. One of the most outstanding plays in the game was a 75-yard punt return run—for a touchdown by Sonny Smith. The final score was 34-13. In the next game the Andrew Lewis grid- ders lost to the Cardinals of Danville 27-0. Kenny Norton made impressive gains for Andrew Lewis. The next three games with Thomas I Jefferson, Byrd, and Fleming were losing battles for the scrappy Andrew Lewis team, M The opponents’ scores were due mostly to fumbles by the A. L. team. Looking good , for the Wolverines were Norton, Myers, U Smith, and Henson. The scores were 1 3-7 ,la 14-6 and 20-6. Next our win over Lane put us back in|J the winning column. Beason, Norton, and Wagner scored with Gresham converting for the point. The final score was 34-12. Then came our long-awaited game with the rival team, Jefferson.

THE ANDREW LEWIS JUNIOR VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM or “Baby Wolverines” experienced the most suc¬ cessful season that has been enjoyed by a J. V. team in many years. The recoid lor the year was five wins and two losses. What was behind such a successful season? Two main things! They had a group of boys playing that always were out to win regardless of the odds. They did not have a really large team and it cannot be said they bullied their way. They had a coach that did outstanding work in building a great little football team. The season started out with Troutville Varsity. The “Baby Wolverines” were really outmatched but never gave up fighting. This might be called one of the outstanding games although they lost 22-6. Next, they went on the “Victory Path” by downing Fleming Junior Varsity 12-0. This was an interesting game and the AL J. V.’s played a pretty good game. Then on they went to put away the Jefferson J. V.’s by coming from behind a halftime lead of 12-0. Final score 20-12! Nice going, boys. They then traveled to Fincastle to whip a deter¬ mined Fincastle Varsity 12-7. Then came the heartbreaker, a loss to Byrd Junior Varsity 14-7. They were up against a snappy bunch of boys and lost the game in the last minutes of play. Boom! They came roaring back the following week to trip the “high flying” Jefferson “B” team 20-19. Although the Jeffs scored often they could not beat the “Baby Wolverines”. Never once did the J. V.’s quit and as a result, they won. This can be called our greatest triumph of the year. Last, but surely not the least, they stomped the Glass J. V.’s 26-6. They had not beaten this team for quite a few years. From the final analysis of this season, the future seems indeed bright for coach Hal Johnston and his Varsity Wolver¬ ines. We can look to the next few years as the “years of plenty” in the land of the Blue and White.
