When the Peru students look hack on the football season of 1916 it should come to them as one of the most successful and enjoyable years that the community has ever been privileged to witness. Peru had a football team which should long be remembered by all who saw them play.

The first day the squad assembled on the athletic field they displayed the spirit which characterized the entire season’s work.

There were no “quitters” and the “reserves” gave the “varsity” the best they had in the endeavor to build up a strong team.

This being our first game the line was some what ragged, but this, of course might well be expected because of the lack of training.
