1966 Season Recap

Neshaminy, unbeaten in 51 straight games and having suffered just 3 losses in its last 86 games which stretch back through the 1958 season, loses its opener to Bishop Egan, 41-0. On the schedule since 1960, the Eagles had lost all six of the previous games and the win sets the tone for their season. The ‘Skins loss was prophetic too as it was a tough campaign without the departed ‘Cuskie as the team suffers a losing year for the first time since 1951. A series of injuries and close losses plague the club all season.

As to Egan, the Eagles fashioned a 12-1 record as they captured the Philadelphia Catholic League title and the Philadelphia City Championship too. A solid club featuring Larry Marshall, who played seven seasons in the NFL, Egan was ranked by one scholastic magazine as fifth in the country at the end of the year. On a bright note, Colbert and Fred Conger play in the Big 33 game which is the first time two Neshaminy players were selected to participate in the same year.
