''APTAIN ROSCOE TOLLY was probably the most outstanding guard in Nebraska college football circles during the 1931 season. " Ross" came to Peru in 1929 and at once began to make a name for himself in athletics. Before entering college Tolly had never played a game of football, but lack of experience is no drawback to a man of his type. During the 1929 season he made it mighty tough for the regular first stringers and won the respect of every man on the squad. Roscoe also played wonderful football during the 1930 season and. at the close of a very successful year at guard, was chosen by his teammates to pilot the 1931 Bobcats. No team could ask for a better leader than Roscoe Tolly whose record will always stand high in Peru athletic history. Peru is fortunate that this all-state guard, the leader of the 1931 Bobcats, still Captain Tolly has another football season to play for "Old Peru.”

1931 FOOTBALL VARSITY
THK 1931 football season was entirely successful as far as the Peru Bobcats were concerned. Not because of the number of games won. but because of the number and quality of the material that was broken in during the season. This material will be invaluable during the next few years. Of the twenty-two lettermen. twelve are first year men. while only four will not be back for the 1932 season. This merely means that the outlook is very bright for next season.
The season was an even break as far as the Bobcats were concerned. Peru won four games, lost four, and tied one. The schedule was one of the heaviest contracted by Peru in recent years, but the Bobcats emerged from the season with a total of eighty-six points to the opponents' sixty-one. The twenty-five points difference between Peru and its opponents showed the team's power.
Peru finished second in the N. I. A. A. Conference of which Omaha University was chain-pion. This conference consists of Chadron. Kearney. Omaha University. Peru, and Wayne. Hach team in the conference plays every other conference team, consequently the Bobcats played four conference games. Non-conference games were played with strong teams from the N. C. A. C. Conference and with the Maryville Teachers College Wildcats of Maryville. Mo.
r OACH GLENN GILKESON has finished his second year as Head Mentor of the Peru Bobcat football team. The coach is always the guiding hand in intercollegiate football and "Gilk has certainly been the hand behind the Bobcats during the past two years. He not only is a student of football, but has a knack of getting his knowledge across to his men and also the power of instilling drive and "fire into his teams. Although the Gilkeson coached teams have not established any outstanding records, they have learned many of those things which are most important and yet are so often overlooked by coaches. Some of these things are: sportsmanship, co-operation, and clean, right living. These are the things for which our coach. Glenn Gilkeson. stands and we are proud of him and his record as a man. athlete, and coach.
