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.

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

Neshaminy Redskins Season Guide - Season 89

 

Congratulations to the team and their perfect 10-0 regular season! They have now joined a special group of Neshaminy teams that heretofore was made up of just four squads which included the 1954, 1971, 1988 and 2001 Redskins. Now expanded to five, the 2016 ‘Skins can also claim that very special distinction. Then on top of that they have also earned the right to wear the 2016 SOL National Conference crown.

Records

The 2016 season saw many records fall by the wayside. Mason Jones QB and Zach Tredway WR set some records that will be hard to beat. Their friendship on and off the field made for a explosive synergy of passes, TDs and receptions. Dylan McDonald K surpassed Kevin Kelly, former Penn State Kicker, in PATs. Sophomore Oleh Manzyk continuously made the 'impossible' plays. We look forward to seeing him on the field for the next two years.
