1953 Season Recap

We are in dire need of 1953 media. We do not even have an official roster for this year, just a piece of the preseason schedule which shows player White Jersey names and munbers. If you have any old game programs from 1953 please contact us.

The ‘Skins manufacture another 9-1 season as Bensalem ruins the run for a 10-0 finish in the last game when it upsets the heavily favored Neshaminy team, 7-6. Despite the loss, the team takes the LBC championship for the second year in a row (and for the fourth time since 1946). The 18 games without a defeat or tie, between the opening game in ’52, and the loss to Bensalem in the last contest of ’53, are a record at Neshaminy to this day. The Courier Times begins maintaining stats on the leading scorer each year and Neshaminy’s Don Cameron takes the first year honors with 108. Joe Moronese then tallies 113 in ’54 while Errol Faunce logs 97 in ’55 as Neshaminy pulls off a “three-peat”. Through 1965, and including the three just named, Neshaminy sees one of its players win the “title” nine times including Harry Schuh (twice), Jack Stricker, Bob Baxter (twice) and Jim Colbert.
