Peru's 1937 football team was not a winning squad—yet they played a brand of football that was crowd-pleasing and Peru-pleasing.
A fast brand of ball featuring a light team full of trick plays and quick, fast opening plays delighted the large crowd of rooters. Spectacular is hardly the word for the wild Peru-Wayne mix. Homecoming was spoiled by rain but proved to be the second best game of the year with Peru nosing Wesleyan 7-6.
Five defeats, one tie and two victories were marked in the annals of the season, little to look back on in future years, but full of pleasant memories of fast furious playing to Peruvians of this year.
Coach Gilkeson used his second team a good deal of the time—building for the future. The second team also engaged in two practice games with Tarkio, losing the first game and tying the second.
Twenty men lettered on the varsity, of which five played their last game for the Blue and white at Tarkio. Those five were: Joel Punches, Bernard Barisas, El-dred Douglas, Orval Pugh and Lawrence Stark. Other lettermen were: Keith McHugh, Robert McGinley, Ross Adams, Elmon Velvick, Gilbert Purucker, John Boyer, Tom Majors, Bert Hall, Dale Bridgewater, Lester Mosley, John Greene, Leonard Greathouse, George Mort, Delbert Nelson and Wilber Shields.
Shields, Greathouse, Barisas and Punches were rated on various all-state selections.
