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

We would like to thank the Neshaminy Redskins for a great 2018 season. We wish the Seniors the best of luck in the future and we hope to see you in the stands in the coming years. No matter where you go in life we hope that you always remember the thrill of playing for the 'Skins.

We recognize the tremendous effort put in by all the coaches and are grateful for all the time they spend to maintain a consistently great program year after year.

The Neshaminy N Club did a great job in making sure that players lacked for nothing. Their efforts behind the scenes are appreciated.

The Neshaminy fans are second to none and this year was no exception. Always there to cheer on their team, they were a positive force in the stands. Shout out to Skins Nation and the student section for their unbridled enthusiasm.
