Newport News Sept. 13
The Woodrow Wilson Presidents started the season off
with a bang. With a Driving ground attack and a forceful
defense, Johnny Klise, Big Boy Brown, and Varon Rollins
started the ball rolling for a very big season.
Wilson 34 Newport News 6
Churchland Sept. 20
Varon Rollins was only in the game for two plays when he had scored two touchdowns, which sums up the Prexie's slaughter of the Truckers. With a good air attack Wilson just ate up the yardage. At the end of the game Wilson had given Churchland its worst defeat ever with a score of 50-0
Norview Oct. 4
The Presidents faced the tough Norview Pilots. It was one of the most exciting games of the year, and with the most action. The defense played its most superb game, holding the Pilots to one touchdown and very little yardage. The Prexies won 13-6
Oscar Smith Oct. 11
A homecoming crowd of 8000 saw the Presidents
defeat the undefeated Tigers of Oscar Smith with
running passing and lots of defense. The Presidents
lengthened their winning streak with a score of 33-7.
The underrated pass defense of Wilson let Jackie Young of Deep Creek know what it's like to have passes intercepted. The whole game turned into a scoring battle, with Wilson getting more than half the points. Wilson 51-20 over Deep Creek.
Maury Nov. 8
The Maury Commodores visited Lawrence Stadium with hopes of defeating the steam-rolling Presidents. Robert Powell, Varon Rollins and Johnny Klise turned the game into a shambles with long runs and longer passes. The Presidents ruined the Commodores ideas with a score of 49-7.
Granby Nov. 15
The Presidents went to Foreman Field with hopes of bringing home another victory. For the first time the sharp Presidents looked dull as they had to come from behind to tie the Granby Comets 13-13
Cradock Nov. 22
The Presidents came home for the last game of the season. The Prexies looking for revenge after the tie with Granby, took it out on the Cradock Admirals with a score of 49-6
