After several weeks of gruelling practice on the necessary fundamentals, calisthenics, and scrimmage with the aspiring freshmen the “Cats” opened the football season with a decisive victory over the Irish from Si. Benedicts College, Atchison, Kansas. These fighting Irishmen came to Peru presenting almost the same lineup as that of the previous year. The outcome of the game was never in doubt. St. Benedict did not have a chance against the charging line and driving backs of Peru. Sautter, Toft and Zook were the main cogs in the Bobcat machine. The first half ended 19-0, but in the second half the Irish came back to show they still had some fight and had not given up. As a result Peru was held to a score of but 7 points in the second half. The game ended 25-0 in favor of Peru.
'I'hc next game will be remembered because of the weather which was very muddy. Graf and Company embarked on their excursion to Maryville, Missouri, early Friday morning, taking with them everything they thought would help combat the mud. After a long and tiresome trip, just enough players and suits arrived at four o’clock to start a game.

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

Despite the mud, the long trip and the on-coming darkness the game was started. The game was very even. Both teams were very evenly matched. The Missourians, inspired by a loyal student body, threatened to score at the end of the first half and again near the end of the game but was stopped by the Bobcat line. Claussen and Hofmann were the outstanding players for Peru. At the end of the muddy battle, which ended in the dark, both teams were satisfied with a scoreless tie.
October 12, a beautiful fall day, witnessed another great gridiron classic. The Wesleyan Coyotes came to Peru thoroughly determined to down the Bobcat demon of the Nebraska Ozarks. However, the Coyote and Bobcat got the best of neither one, the game was evenly played as a game could be. The game showed a slight advantage to Peru, as but one first down was made through Peru’s line. After the haze of the battle had lifted itself, no counters had been made. Brockman, Zook and Sautter stood out as the shining lights for Peru.
