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

chris tredway

Chris Tredway was selected to receive a 2017 Courier-Kiwanis Scholar-Athlete Award.

The Scholar-Athletes Awards are presented by the Dick Dougherty Scholarship Fund — a longtime collaboration between the Bucks County Courier Times and the Levittown-Bristol Kiwanis Club. The fund was established in the memory of the late Dick Dougherty, the longtime sports editor at the Bucks County Courier Times.

The scholarships are funded through the proceeds of the Courier-Kiwanis Sesame Place Classic 5K and by the support of sponsors. The major sponsor of this year’s awards is PSEA-Retired Bucks, an organization representing retired teachers in Bucks County.

He received a plaque along with scholarship money from the Dick Dougherty Scholarship Fund. Congratulations Zach!
