1986 Season Recap

Finishing 8-3 for the second year in a row, Neshaminy grabs its first SOL National Conference co-championship in Bedesem’s third year with the club. It’s the first championship for the Redskins since Allison’s group took the LBC co-title in 1975. And perhaps feeling he had done his part, Bedesem steps aside after the season ends to take on the head coaching duties at Delaware Valley College. His record at Neshaminy, during the 1984 though 1986 years he bossed the club, is 23-9.
