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

The Marching Band will be kept busy this fall with performances at all Redskin football games as well as participating in Marching Band Shows at Upper Dublin, Downingtown West, Plymouth Whitemarsh, Council Rock, William Tennent and Hatboro-Horsham High Schools. We will host our own 25th Annual Kaleidoscope of Bands Show on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

Our 2017 show is entitled “Twisted”. The segments of the show strive to depict a world that is slighty off-kilter, askew and eccentric. The music selections heard through the show include Concert Music for Strings and Brass by Paul Hindemith, the Bells of Notre Dame from the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Creep by Radiohead and Symphonic Metamorphosis by Paul Hindemith. Please sit back and enjoy our presentation of “Twisted”.
