Hall of Fame Game

President Dan Hanson, Bonnie Rutz Carlile, First Lady Elaine Hanson, Shari Paczosa Kucera, Brad Smith, Tamir Anderson Riley, Chuck Mizerski 

On the final play of the game, the Bobcats kicked a field goal and upended Culver-Stockton College, 31-28, avoiding the nail-biting double-overtime victory last week over Mid America Nazarene University.  
Fans and cardiac specialists across southwestern Nebraska hope for a less sensational victory next Saturday over Central Methodists University.

On a previous blog entry, you will find photographs from Friday's Hall of Fame Dinner and acceptance speeches from this year's newest members of the PSC Athletic Hall of Fame. 
Too bad we cannot count on that outcome.  And the Bobcat Nation will rest content with another victory for the 6-1 football game.  Feels great to write 6-1!

I enjoyed the dinner and the game a great deal.  The fact that I knew one of the inductees, Tamir Anderson Riley, as a student pleases me, reminding me of the fact that this year marks my 21st at Peru State College.

And that so many folks know of the Around Peru, NE, blog I find more than a little gratifying.  I am most thankful, too, for all the compliments about my chronicling of the Oak Bowl construction.

As usual, I posted photographs from the game, so enjoy a slide show and download as you like.
Watch this blog and Facebook this next week because, weather permitting, the crew will add numbers and the PSC logo to the carpet. 
I look forward to seeing everyone at the Homecoming Game and parade on 2 November.  That game will take place in Nebraska City against tough Missouri Valley College (currently ranked #6).

See you all at the  Homecoming Parade in Peru.
