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.

Univest’s SuburbanOneSports.com Featured Male Athlete (Week of Oct. 22, 2015)

His nickname on the Neshaminy football team is “Lieutenant,” and Parker Minotti just might earn those stripes and even high ranks on the United States’ most important team of all: the military. The bright, well-rounded, personable and community-minded senior aspires to attend the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY. It’s been his dream since he was in elementary school, and it could become a reality based on his great academic record and extensive extra-curricular resume. Minotti, an athletic 6-4, 225-pound offensive guard and defensive end, embodies the elements that comprise the model student-athlete. He ranks in the top 10 percent of his class and likewise gives 100 percent on the football field and in the community. “When he’s in a room, he brightens the whole room up,” said Neshaminy football coach Steve Wilmot. “He’s not the type of kid that’s going to sit in the background and do nothing. He’s going to give everything he has to everything he does. He has such a positive attitude about everything that he does. From day one, he was a very likeable kid. He’s not afraid to talk; he puts himself out there. He has a lot of positives.”
