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.

Sterling Limo Defensive Player of the Week

Jack Spingler

jack spingler

Spingler had a remarkable game in the Redskins 27-25 victory over Council Rock South. Spingler stopped a game-tying two-point conversion with 24 seconds left in the game. The senior outside linebacker also intercepted a pass, recovered a fumble and blocked an extra point to go along with three solo tackles (including a tackle for a loss) and one assist.

Coach Steve Wilmot says: “Jack had a lot of opportunities to help us this week. A couple of times he was in the right spot at the right time, and that isn’t luck. Jack does what he’s coached to do. He had a real important fumble recovery for us at the beginning of the game. He had a blocked extra point, and without blocking that, it could be a whole different game. He had an interception with a 25-yard return, and he had that big tackle at the end of the game on the two-point conversion. The best thing I can say about Jack is he’s in the right place at the right time, and he does that because he’s a good football player, and that’s what good football players do. “Jack is like a hybrid. Last year he played defensive back for us. This year in our regular defense, he plays outside linebacker, but sometimes he’s asked to play back in the secondary, sometimes he’s asked to play linebacker, and we actually had him on the line a few times – he was almost like a fifth defensive lineman. We ask him to do a lot of different things, and he’s a good football player, and he can pull it off.”
