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.


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.

Student Section

Neshaminy has strong student participation and they represent at every game no matter home or away. The Redskin 8 changes each year and leads the student section in vocal support of our players.

Marching Band

Under the direction of Mike Lipton, our Marching Band is second to none. With a new and exciting theme each year, they keep the crowds entertained with their excellance in musical creativity and spot-on precision formations. For video of our fight songs click here

Thank you to our team for a wonderful year!

game 13 header

Tonight's loss brings a close to the 2015 season and what a great season it was. Many thanks to the team for making it so enjoyable to come to games and watch great plays both offensively as well as defensively . What was so special about this team is that all the players worked together, and each week someone else would step up and come through when needed. We are all so proud of you. Good luck to all of the Seniors and know that you can say that you played football for Neshaminy High School with pride. For the underclassmen it is time to get back to work to get ready for next year.

Congratulations to Coach Wilmot in his 1st year as Head Coach. Great job Coach. The entire coaching staff did their job and did it well. Thank you all.

Thanks to Michele Mazur and her Cheer team, and to Mr. Lipton and the Neshaminy Marching Band. Both kept us entertained and added to the overall experience that is Neshaminy Football. A big shout out to the fans who consistently support their team no matter the drive or the weather. From Montclair to Lansdale, Neshaminy Skins fans are the best.

See you next year!
