1988 Season Recap


Chaump directs the team to a regular season record of 11-0-0 which is Neshaminy’s second team to win all 11 of its 11 regular season games (the other team was the 1971 group). The 1954 club was perfect as well as it went 10-0-0 during its regular season (ten games was the “norm” at that time) and ironically the three teams were sequenced on 17 year cycles leading to speculation that 2005 would follow suit.

Even with its terrific regular season, the 1988 group wasn’t quite done following its 49-14 victory over Pennsbury to close the year. And that was because post-season saw the Redskins selected to participate in the first ever PIAA statewide 4A playoff. Four teams were involved and were picked by a point system with two from the east and two from the west. Pittsburgh Central and Brashear are matched while the ‘Skins draw District 3’s Cedar Cliff Mustangs. But with the air soon let out of their balloon, “Chaump’s Charges” end the year on the wrong side of a 24-0 score. Meanwhile PCC tops the Bulls, 19-14, in the western semi-final and then edges the Mustangs in the final, 14-7. The Vikings are then crowned the first playoff era 4A football state champion in PA history (the story is not over, though, as Neshaminy will eventually meet up with PCC for the title; however, it won’t be for 16 years when they are both in Hershey for the 2004 title game).

With any number of strong players, including underclassmen, on the ’88 squad, Brian Moser stood out as he had helped anchor the team from his linebacker and fullback positions. Following the season Moser went on to play at Penn State and letters in three seasons.

We wish to thank Mrs. Sannelli and her son Vince for all their assistance with media for 1988 and 1989.
