1987 Season Recap

John Chaump becomes head coach following Bedesem’s departure. First arriving in Lower Bucks in the late ’60s, where he started coaching at Woodrow Wilson, he also was the head coach at Maple Point and Morrisville before taking the top slot in Langhorne. Playing schoolboy football at West Pittston high located near Scranton, he had then attended Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre. Playing football for the Colonels, he was an integral part of the group that posted a streak of 32 straight wins in the late ’60s (fourth longest in college football at the time). He is also the brother of former Naval Academy and Harrisburg High coach, George Chaump, and is a football man through-and-through. With his background paying dividends, and not missing a beat, Chaump’s Redskins post a 9-2 record in his inaugural season with the resurgent team then looking for more.
