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 Suburban One League Defensive Player of the Week

Daulton Fox

daulton fox

Fox came up with a huge defensive effort in a ‘must-win’ situation for Neshaminy last week. The Redskins found themselves in a ‘win or go home’ contest against archrival Pennsbury – and an enormous defensive effort limited the explosive Falcon offense to just 14 points in a 16-14 victory. Fox recorded 10 tackles – eight solo tackles – and also broke up a pass to highlight the Skins’ defensive performance. The Neshaminy season will continue this week as the # 13 seeded Skins travel to # 2 seed Downingtown West.

Neshaminy head coach Steve Wilmot says: “Daulton and Coach (Neil) French put in countless hours looking at film. He makes the calls for us on defense, along with Zach Tredway, and we give him a lot of responsibility. He has been a starter for the last two years, and he continues to improve. Against Pennsbury he was very impressive with the way that he finished tackles. He is our leader on defense.”
