1967 Season Recap

Pete Cordelli, Sr. becomes head coach and helps right the ship after the tough 1966 campaign, the first without Franks or Petercuskie in 14 years. Cordelli helps to get the team back on track, despite a losing campaign punctuated by another series of close call losses as in ’66. Cordelli retires after the end of the campaign.

We need to thank the following alumni for their assistance with media: Craig Johns, Kris and Bruce Traney and Tom Beccone. Without their help this page would not have been possible!

This photo was submitted by Craig Johns, 1967 recipient of the title Mr. Redskin. Craig was instrumental in supplying us with a ton of info (some of it still being processed as we are swamped with memorabilia right now - always a good thing!) including his jersey, which we were thrilled to receive. Craig took the honor to heart and christened his vehicle with a shout out to the Neshaminy Redskins! As Craig says, "Proud to still be a Redskin after 55 Years".
