Heartbreak Ridge

The first game played at Neshaminy’s new field, called the “Neshaminy Athletic Field” or “Playwicki Field”, was in 1956. In 1965 Dick Dougherty of the Courier-Times refers to Neshaminy’s football field as “Heartbreak Ridge”. It was appropriately renamed as Harry E. Franks Stadium in 1985. LED lights were installed in July of 2015. Neshaminy is the 1st High School field on the East Coast to have these installed

Wall of Fame

The “Wall of Fame” was built to serve as a very public and important display of the many players, coaches and others who have contributed so much to Neshaminy’s football program since its first season of 1928. The statue of Coach John Petercuskie Sr., 1960 - 1965, was dedicated on September 19, 2010. His record was 59-1-5.

Cheer

Our Cheer team. led by Michelle Mazur has a long history of winning Championships. Known for their famous Chant "Everybody do the Redskin Rumble", they raise spirits at every game.

We are proud to present the 2014-15 Neshaminy High School Redskin Marching Band. This year the band is comprised of 149 members, which includes 133 musicians and 16 color guard. The band is directed on the field by Drum Majors Dan Aslanian and Christina Chen and Field Captain Drew Luniewski. The band director is Michael Lipton. Band staff includes Lisa Boccuti, Zack Travis, Andrew Nittoli, Nora Boccuti, Jeff Ormsby, Michael Pettis, Matt Snyder and Michael Allen. Drill design is by Jason Welsh and musical arrangements are by Zack Travis.

The Marching Band will be kept busy this fall with performances at all Redskin football games as well as participating in Marching Band Shows at Pennridge, Owen J. Roberts, Council Rock South, William Tennent and Conestoga High Schools. We will host our own 22nd Annual Kaleidoscope of Bands Show on Saturday, October 25, 2014.

Our 2014 show pays tribute to the famous Ironman Triathalon. The three components of this challenging race - swim, bike and run, are depicted as the show progresses. Part 1 – “Swim” begins with music from “The Tempest” by Tschaikowsky and transitions to music from “The Moldau” by Smetana. Part 2 – “Bike” is set to “Bicycle Race” made famous by Queen. The show culminates in Part 3 – “Run” featuring music by Ron Nelson from his “Sonoran Desert Holiday”.
