Delaney Is Visitors’ Starring Man;
Makes Only Run for Team on a
60 Yards Play
The Purple AA'hirlwind opened the
grid season, Friday, September 22, with
a victory over Reidsville. AA'hen the
whistle sounded at the final quarter
the score was 31 to G. Reidsville put
up a snappy fight before the heavier
and more experienced Greensboro
eleA’en was able to down them. A large
part of the student bodj’ was at the
stadium cheering the Purple and Gold
Reidsville won the toss and defended
the north goal. Captain Brown kicked
off to Reidsville and Benson brought
the ball back 12 yards. Failing to gain,
R. H. S. resorted to a punt. Brown
crashed through Reidsville’s line and
blocked the kick. G. H. S. then started
an offensive that ended in a touch
down. Teague gained seven yards over
the line. Cook added two more and
Davant tore off fourteen yards and
placed the ball within scoring distance.
Teague smashed the line for twelve
yards and made a touchdown. On the
second kick-off the visitors were held
for downs and another march started
down the field.
AA'hen Greensboro seemed so well in
the lead. Coach AVoodward sent in the
second team. Reidsville played them
to a standstill and Delaney picked up a
fumble and raced down the field GO
yards for a touchdown, and the longest
run of the game.
Coach AVoodward sent the first team
back into the fight for the last quar
ter. Two more touchdowns were add
ed before the final whistle.
There are two people who spend
much of their time helping G. H. S.’s
football team, and receive very little
credit. These two are Dr. Tankersley
and Emile Hodge. “Doc” is always on
hand at every game to take care of the
injured. Emile rubs down all the sore
spots of the team every night.
A new scoreboard has been installed
at the stadium. This is similar to the
one at Carolina and helps the spectator
to enjoy the game exceedingly more.
The score, number of yards to go, and
what down it is, are all told on the
“Now, Aliss Alartin, I bet you won
last night,” was the cheery greeting
to the teacher in room 8.
“I suppose your les,son will tell who
the winners were,” was the reply.
“A dollar and sixty cents is right
good in just one night. T’m gonna col
lect at lunch,” boastfully proclaimed
“Yes, I didn’t lose but a dollar. I
won before, but lost it all last night.”
“Uh-huh, now who were you betting
“Dad, and mother got me for it, too.”
“Yes, and you better watch out or
somebody else will get you, too,” was
the advice given.
Nothing like this appeared in
