1958 Season Recap

Pete Cordelli, Sr. is hired as an assistant coach after ‘Cuskie makes a call, just as he had done with Swartz a few years back. Cordelli, from Blakely in upstate PA, had played for the legendary John “Papa Bear” Henzes as a school boy before service in the navy during World War II. After the war’s end he headed to George Washington University where he played both football and baseball in addition to earning his degree.

On the field the team comes in at 8-1-1 with Pennridge, champ of the BuxMont, delivering the only loss that year, 26-13. Neshaminy earns its seventh LBC championship in a row while with turnabout being fair play, the team stops Allentown, 18-0, and earns some “revenge” for the smack down the year before. Two sophomores, Schuh and Jack Stricker, are instant “hits” as running backs with Schuh winning the LBC scoring title that season.
