 COACH JOHNSON "TICK" HANKY Kullbark ifnnthall "CAI " K11 I Knd 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 cooperation between the school and the team did much to give them the enviable record but the team spirit and the good fellowship of every man on the squad was an equally important factor. Every man played for the love of the game and for the honor of the school and each gave the best that was in him and gave it without a grudging thought. The team worked as one man and there was a feeling of cooperative spirit which is the one requisite in prompt, definite, teamwork which brings results. The first day the squad assembled on the athletic field they displayed the spirit which characterized the entire season’s work. True, the squad was not large but they were all there for a purpose, and each man carried his work to a definite end. There were no “quitters” and the “reserves” gave the “varsity” the best they had in the endeavor to build up a strong team. Of course the first game was played with our old friends the “Coyotes” and on Sept. 29 we Started the series of battles which placed Peru on the permanent football map. 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. The back field especially slow and erratic on the start showed great room for improvement. It was some of the old men who came to the rescue and turned the tide of battle for Peru. ”1 he principal t£)l7

 j9r ? hri wa 7 •MARTY" CRAKJ Quarterback "SANDY" "RKI " KMMKRTT “OrNBOAT" SMITH Halfback Halfback Halfback men in this move were “Vic” Jones and “Charley” Spacht and it you will let your memory rove you can recall that they were always on the job. Schneider, “Red" Kmmcrt and “Tubby” Hell, all new men made a permanent place tor themselves on the team and in the hearts of the students. We can rightly say that the credit of the lew score should be given to the “scrappy” Peru lineman. Score—Wesleyan 0 Peru 0. Peru’s second game was played October 6th at Grand Island. Having left Peru Oct. 5th and after a good night’s rest at (irand Island the team was in the very best possible condition. In this game great improvement was shown in the ability of the line to hold on the defensive and to charge together on the offensive. The backfield also displayed a marked improvement over the previous game. “Red” Kmmcrt and “Gunboat” Smith made consistent gains thru the Grand Island line while Captain Haney demonstrated his ability to punt and tackle. Of the linemen we would say that this was “Vic’s” greatest defensive game of the year and is probably the one that won him his place on the all-state eleven. Forward passes were used frequently and to good advantage by both of the teams. It was in this game that “Marty” Craig got his first drop kick of the season and also scored the first touchdown for Peru. he scoring was in a large measure due to the passing and punting of Captain “ I ige”. It was a clean fast game and Coach Johnson was well pleased by the showing of the Peru team. The value of teamwork and team spirit could easily be seen. Score- (irand Island 7 Peru 9. 15)17
