UNDER the tutelage of Lon R. Graf, Bobcat machines are always successful. During his reign as Head Mentor of pigskin activities he has developed many championship teams. 1923 witnessed the beginning of Peru’s ascending to the top of the Nebraska sport world and a very large part of the credit is due to our “Maker of Champions,’’ Coach Graf.
In 1923 Coach Graf came to Peru late in the practice season. Under ordinary circumstances this would have proved a severe handicap but if it was a handicap no one ever was aware of it because at this time the invincible Bobcats began to assert themselves and since 1924 when the Cats won their first football championship they have been the most feared aggre-Coacii Graf gation in Nebraska.

A brief resume of the 1929 season shows the fighting Bobcats victors in six of the nine games and only one reverse from the hands of a formidable and somewhat lucky group of Chadron Eagles. In two encounters neither Maryville, Wesleyan or Peru were able to score.
Four years ago a tall dark-haired youth from Elmwood came down to Peru. During his high school days he had been inspired by the fascinating art of football playing. From the first evening of practice it became apparent that this young man represented the raw material that would shape itself into a great Bobcat. That is what Helmut has done. Amid very stiff competition by merit of real ability and interest, Brockman played in nearly every game. The second and third years saw him growing in ability and in 1929, as Captain of one of the finest football teams ever developed in Peru. Brock stood head and shoulders above other linemen in Nebraska.
Being a careful student of the game and a good general are Brockman’s most valuable characteristics.
He capitalized upon them with the net result of a great reputation throughout Nebraska. A good athlete, a critical general and a splendid fellow.
The usual large number of men turned out to do their share in helping build a strong team, to help keep the Blue and White waving. Among this number were a large number of lettermen who were able to
carry the fight ably forward. Capt. Brockman
