1968 Season Recap

17. 1968 UR

Head Coach Jack Swartz

Swartz is named head coach and his first move is to call Allison up from Carl Sandburg junior high to serve as his right-hand man. It works too as the ‘Skins post a turn-around 7-4 season during Swartz’ first season. A game club, a one-point loss to William Tennent is a heart-breaker while a 17-13 loss to a 10-1 Pennsbury team (which may have been number one in Pennsylvania if not for its only loss, 13-12, to Easton), suggests the ‘Skins are on the way back. Looking for a place kicker during the season after his kickoff and extra point man, fullback Ed Romanowski, breaks his leg in a game, Swartz grabs junior soccer player Chris Bahr to fill the role. Swartz’ “move” starts a trend at Neshaminy that has lasted to this day. Bahr goes on to play for Penn State before enjoying a 14 year career in the NFL which included appearances in two Super Bowls.

Neshaminy moved from the Big 6 League to the Big 7 League. Please contact us if you have a 1968 Game Program.
