"Where did they all come from?” “Who is that big fellow down there, failin’ on the ball?” “Look at that guy run!” “Did you ever sec so many huskies all in one bunch?”
These are but a few of the remarks heard on the athletic field during the first few nights of football practice. They are quotations which came from the hearts of all the fans in school. It has been the earnest wish of the football enthusiasts, since last fall, that this year would bring forth material of exceeding value, and lo. their prayers have been answered! This statement needs no written proof since we have all been eye witnesses and know that our team made a wonderful showing in every game. There are probably three very important reasons for this good record, and it would be very difficult to say which is the greatest.
First, we would mention the training which the team received at the hands of Coach Johnson. Second, as has already been intimated, the superb material with which the Coach had to work; and last, but certainly not least, is the “scrub team.” Wc would apologize for using this odious word in connection with our second team as there were no “scrubs” in the entire squad. The tus-scls which took place in the practice scrimmages were worth the price of a scheduled game; and often has the author, with others, stood upon the bank and listened to the commands of Captain Tilton as he shouted out the bloodcurdling order, “Grab ’em by the ears!”
.The season, as a whole, has been a record of which every loyal Peruvian is justly proud, and this book would not be complete without a more or less detailed account of each game. Thus, with pleasure, we erect the following verbal monument to our living warriors.
THE TARKIO GAME
The first game of the season was played upon our home field with our friends from Missouri. They came over full of the spirit for which their state is reputed, and our boys came back with real Nebraska “pep,” for the purpose of "showing them,” which they did very successfully.
Peru was given the kick-off and the game began. Tarkio’s return was fairly good but they were soon held for downs and then it was our turn. The ball was in Tarkio’s territory most of the time and often we expected to see our team push over, but when the critical moment came the Missourians gathered pluck and stood fast. However, in the third quarter, Clements, our Orlcy, decided it was time to quit fooling. Accordingly, he ran up in front of the punter, as if there were no line, and blocked a punt. But that isn’t all. for he picked up the ball and proceeded to play hop-skip-and-jump, until he had passed the goal line.
