1963 Season Recap

The ‘Skins book a 9-0-1 record, take the LBC again and are also champs of the newly formed East Penn League title (the predecessor to the Big 6,7 and 8 leagues and which initially consists of Neshaminy, Easton, Allentown Allen, Allentown Dieruff and Bethlehem Liberty). The team also plays their first game in the new concrete stadium as they open the year against Central Dauphin, a District 3 powerhouse which has lost just one game in the previous two seasons. The ‘Skins bank a 7-0 win. Seating is expanded to over 10,000 as the “old” bleachers are moved to the sides of the concrete stands. In a dogfight, the Redskins just get by visiting Pennsbury, 21-20, in the final game that year as the rivalry is beginning to see the heat turned up.

Baxter finishes his three years at Neshaminy with 367 total points which still stands as Neshaminy’s career scoring record. He is named first team all state by the AP and UPI, the second ‘Skin to be honored by both newspaper groups in the same year, while he is also the second Redskin to be selected all state as a junior and senior (following Schuh’s selections in ’59 and ’60). Baxter receives high school all American honors as well, just as Schuh had in 1961, and he then follows him to Memphis State where he stars as a wideout and punter. Drafted by Cleveland in ’68, he makes it to the last cut and declines the invitation to stay with the Browns on the “Taxi Squad”.
