The Coyotes Kick Off
Captain Arthur Gariss
Captain Arthur “Art" Gariss, all-state guard on the championship Bobcat eleven, played his last year for Peru. He is a man who played the game not for the honor showered upon the star, but for the love of the sport—good, clean sport.
The student body takes this opportunity to extend Gariss best wishes for the future in his coaching work.
Captain-elect Daris Bunch
Captain-elect Daris Bunch was rated the best pivot man in the state conference. For three years Bunch has been a formidable center, always alert on the offense and determined on the defense.
Not only is Bunch a star gridster, but he has equally outstanding qualities as a student and gentleman.
Coach Graf sent his proteges into action for the first time in the 1927 season against Tarkio at Peru. September 23. The Missourians found going tough and were forced into submission by an 18 to 0 final. Seeking new lands to conquer, the Peru squad made their inaugural appearance against St. Benedict's at Atchison, Kansas, September 29, and took their measure to the tune of 19 to 0.
Then the Bobcats jumped into conference competition by sending Dana home on the short end of a 96 to 0 count, Friday, October 7. October 15 will long be remembered by homecomers. The Bobcat sent the Coyote howling to his lair to the tune of 22 to 0.

Coach Lon R. Graf
Lon R. “Little Knute" Graf, head mentor and builder teams, took up his work in Peru in the fall of 1923. Graf filled the varsity berths of tackle and guard at Nebraska in the team of 1916. He also starred in the cinder path, and captained the track team of 1915 at Westminster.
Since coming to Peru, Graf has coached three champion basket ball teams and two champion football elevens. He has yet to see his proteges finish further down the conference ladder than second place in either sport.
Coach Paul E. Kutnink
Paul E. Kutnink, head basket ball coach, made his inaugural appearance in Peru in 1926. A graduate of Emporia State Teachers College of Emporia, Kansas, Coach Kutnink is both athlete and maker of athletes.
Since arriving in Peru, Coach Kutnink has assisted Coach Graf in football and track, and his basket ball quintet finished second in conference standings.

The Bobcats Block A Coyote Punt
The Peruvians avenged an old score and stepped into conference leadership, never to be headed.
With an anxious group of followers chanting the praises of an unscorcd-on team, the Bobcats disappointed a large Midland Homecoming crowd by disposing of the Warriors 20 to 0 at Fremont, October 22.
The forces from Cotner and Wayne proved little more than straws in the path of the Peru tornado. Cotner went home humbled 74 to 0; and Wayne could find little consolation in the lopsided count of 91 to 0.
Then it fell the lot of the Grafmen to dispose of Kearney before laying claims to the coveted trophy. However, the Antelopes had decided to play a role in the show themselves. The game was hard-fought on a cold, snow-swept field, but the final gun boomed the knell of parting day for Kearney and announced the Peru Bobcats as State Conference Champs by virtue of their 19 to 7 finale.

Peru 18 Tarkio 0
Peru 19 St. Benedict’s 0
Peru 22 Wesleyan 0
Peru 20 Midland 0
Peru 74 Cotner 0
Peru 91 Wayne 0
