Captains Milan Christley and Kenny Norton shake hands with the William Byrd captains before the game. A. L. won, 20-0. It surely must have been a tense moment, as players, coaches, mana¬ gers and even “Little Hal ” looked on with awe¬ some expressions. Early in the first quarter, Andrew Lewis’ Kenny Norton drove over for a first score. This lead didn’t last, as Fleming scored a 20-13 victory over the Salem boys. Oakes, Zini, Ho- back, Myers look on. A. L.’s Kenny Norton drives closer to the Wm. Byrd goal line. Leon- hardt executes a block as Clark, Henson, Ho- back and Christley look on. The Salemites scored a 20-0 victory in a game hampered by many pen¬ alties. mm. ' si

Front Row, Left to Right: Buddy Perry, Billy Myers, Eddie Zini, Sonny Smith, Kenny Norton, Billy Roberts, Tommy Clemons, Bobby LaGarde, Larry Clark, David Rutherford, Ronnie Ingoe Second Row: ' Head Coach Hal Johnston, Ronnie Henry, Mark Graybill, Jimmy Gresham, High Bainter, Dickie Combs, Johnny Hesmer, Walter Bailey, Frank Wagner, Butch Hurt, Jimmy Carroll, Emory Tarpley, Wayne Waldron, Assistant Coach Walt Crawford Third Row: Fred Hoback, Curtis Bare, Jack Beason, Burks Logan, Ashton Lough, Pete Watts, Milan Christley, Harlan Leonhardt, Paul Henson, Gene Tuttle, Brown Martin, Walter Chapman, Pete McGue, Don Oakes Varsity Football Kenny Norton, Billy Myers, and Jack Beason got the 1955 Wolverines off to a good start as they rambled through the Blacksburg Indians for three touchdowns. Sonny Smith added two extra points for a 20-0 victory. Andrew Lewis needed a strong second half to defeat G. W. of Danville, 13-0. Sonny Smith scored both touchdowns and Jimmy Gresham booted the extra point. In Richmond, the Salemites fell before a highly rated Thomas Jefferson team, 27-6. The game was played in a steady rainfall and was pretty close all the way. Kenny Norton scored the Wolverines only touchdown. Back in Salem again, the Wolverines gained their third victory of the season by stomping William Byrd, 20-0. Walter Chapman, Sonny Smith and Buddy Perry scored in a game that saw many penalties against Salem, including two touchdowns that were called back. Gresham converted twice for Salem. In a loss to our cross town rival, William Fleming, Salem got off to a fast start. Smith scored first but a couple of breaks sent Fleming into the lead. Two long touchdown runs by Smith and a pass from Bailey to Perry were called back by penalties. The final score was 20-13. Salem stepped back into the winning column by beating Lane of Charlottesville, 35-0. Kenny Norton scored twice in the first quarter and Ronnie Henry and Eddie Zini scored by taking alert advantage of Lane misques in the second quarter. Bailey capped a long drive by tossing 15 yard to end Pete McGue, for the last tally. In the big game that everyone was waiting for, Salem captured a 13-0 half time lead, but couldn’t hold it as Jefferson fought out a 20-13 victory. The game was a loss for the Jeffs, though, because they lost their ace quarterback, Walter Howard for the season. Ken Norton tallied A. L.’s two touchdowns. Salem was on the warpath after the Jeff game, and Halifax County was their victim. With Norton and Smith getting two touchdowns each, and Buddy Perry adding another, A. L. romped to a 31-6 victory. The sixth victory of the season for A. L. was gained by defeating E. C. Glass, 14-12. Ken Norton scored on a 15-yard run in the third period, to erase a 6-0 half time lead by the Glassmen. Then in the fourth quarter, Buddy Perry grabbed a Lynchburg pass and raced 60 yards to tally the winning points. Beason’s conversions were the margin of victory. In their last game of the season, the Wolverines overpowered the Covington Cougars, 20-0. Ken Norton broke loose on touchdownr uns of 25 and 38 yards. Ashton Lough plunged 3 yards for another touchdown. Late in the game, after Salem had pushed the Cougars back to their 5-yard line, Norton blocked a punt to give A. L. a safety. Two bad centers and a wide kick were the cause of no conversions. ------ --- - - - '

A. L.’s Sonny Smith returns a Jeff punt into their territory, as Salem rolles up a 13-0 half-time lead. Jefferson then came back to salvage a 20-13 victory. Kenny Norton scores A. L.’s first TD in the second quarter. After driving the length of the field, A. L. took quick advantage of holes in the Jeff defense. “The Four Horse¬ men”, Paul Henson, Harlan Leonhardt, Don Oakes, and Fred Hoback, stand outside the school with Mr. Walter League, manager of the Colonial Theater. These A.L. “ole grads” seemed interested as the Salem boys rolled to a 13-0 half-time lead. They are, Left to Right: Luther Garrett, whose team lost to Jeff, 14-13 in ’52; Skeeter Hesmer and Dickie Bunting, whose team tied the Jeffs in ’46, 0-0; and Gob Garrett, who played on the last team to beat Jefferson. They did it in ’40, 15-6.
