Coach A1 Wheeler began his eleventh season at PSTC as eighteen lettermen reported for the initial drills late in August. In addition to the dozen and a half returning monogram winners there were a host of promising freshmen. In fact, Peru greeted its most promising group of yearling grid candidates since the pre-war era.
When the final gun barked to halt the Peru-York game on Armistice Day, 1948 the Bobcats had won their fourth victory of the season against four defeats. In addition to this accomplishment, four seniors had donned their blue and white grid togs for the final time. This quartet of gladiators who sang the swan song was composed of Jerry Clayburn, Wayne Linder, Jerry Matschullat, and A1 Powers.
On the victory side of the ledger were the games with South Dakota Wesleyan, Doane, Midland, and previously mentioned York. The Bobcat juggernaut came out on the short end of the score against Washburn, Wayne, Chadron and Wesleyan.
Prospects are bright for the 1949 grid campaign with twenty-seven lettermen returning to bolster next autumn's squad.

Peru 34, South Dakota Wesleyan 6
With only two weeks of practice the fighting Bobcats opened the season with a convincing triumph over South Dakota Wesleyan on the Auburn High grid. Darrell Mudra hit pay dirt early in the second canto and the Peru boys were never headed. Mudra chalked up two more markers on short plunges in the last helf while Dean Theisfeld and Bob Wilson added the other tallies. Dick Campbell booted four perfect conversions before the South Dakota boys registered their only six-pointer in the final stanza.
Peru 13, Washburn 34
Fletcher and Harmon led the Ichabods to victory but the game was much closer than the score indicated. The two teams were almost evenly matched from the statistical standpoint. Bob Wilson scored both Peru touchdowns, one of them on a fifty-four yard dash. Dean Theisfeld scampered sixty-five yards on another occasion.
Peru 7, Doane 0
In the first conference game of the season Peru turned back a rugged Doan eleven in a hardfought game on the Nebraska City oval. Darrell Mudra plunged over for the only touchdown in the early moments of the final period, after Wayne Linder had recovered a Doane fumble deep in Tiger territory. Don Anderson's passing played an important part in the Bobcat offense. Doane's T-formation was halted by an aggressive Peru forward wall.
