1997 Season Recap

In Schmidt’s third season the team comes out on top against Abington in a track meet that ends 69-36. An offensive whiz, Schmidt’s ability to put together “high scoring” clubs will be one of his hallmarks. In fact, the Abington game represents the most points scored by a Redskin club in a single game while the 105 total points is also a record for “most points” by both teams in a single game. The ‘Skins are 7-3, just as in ’96; however, two of the losses are by just three points each as Schmidt’s abilities are demonstrated by the team’s on-the-field results.
