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.

Game 4

Neshaminy 43 - Council Rock North 7

Hall of Fame Induction

Neshaminy wins game in first half

heartbreak ridge

On a beautiful clear and cool football Friday, Heartbreak Ridge welcomed the Council Rock North Indians. Winning the coin toss, Neshaminy wasted no time in scoring on the 6th play of the game. Then, with 3:37 left on the clock, 6 points were put on the scoreboard on a 16 yd pass to Mike Garlick but McDonald's kick was blocked by the Indians.

With a huge full moon creeping over the visitor's bleachers, the 'Skins got to work in the 2nd quarter. Two minutes in, and Will Dogba scored on a 20 yard run. A high Council Rock snap batted into the end zone by Joe Stills and Savion Hebron gave the 'Skins 2 more points on a Safety. Ten seconds later from the 50 yard line, Will Dogba took the ball and made a strong run in to the end zone for another 6 points and Dylan McDonald upped the score to 29 - 0 'Skins. Neshaminy was not finished yet as Mason Jones threw a beautiful 24 yd pass to Mike Garlick for his second touchdown of the game and Dylan McDonald added 1 more. Then with 1:10 left on the clock Mike Crescenzo scored on a 11 yard run and Dylan McDonlad's kick was good. Score at end of 2nd quarter of 43 - 0 brought the mercy rule in effect for the remainder of the game.

The 3rd and 4th quarter saw many fresh faces and we saw some nice plays by Mike Crescenzo, Jake Sckupakus, Savion Hebron, Ryan O'Connor, Brock Leinbach as Junior Billy Clark #13 manned the quarterback position.

Many thanks to the Indians for making the trip to Heartbreak Ridge and playing hard all 4 quarters. Hats off to Mike Welde for his 3rd quarter touchdown on a screen pass from Evan Devine.

Captains for tonight's game were #1 Zach Tredway, #6 Jacob Gordon, #7 Will Dogba and #8 Mason Jones.

Congratulations to the 2016 Hall of Fame inductees: Tom Munski class of 67, Vince Sannelli class of 90, Chris Rogers class of 91, Jay Collins class of 02 and Kevin Kelly class of 05.

Goodnight Mrs. B!
