2002 Season Recap
The ‘Skins finish the season at 8-2 and head to the playoffs for the second straight year. Losing to Ridley on the road in Round One, 17-16, Neshaminy’s three losses that year are by 1, 2 and 3 points. Winners of the first three that year, though, the 18 straight unbeaten and untied games, stretching back through 2001, equal the record that was set by Franks’ 1952 and ’53 squads. Brittingham and Ennis play in the Big 33 making it the third time two Neshaminy players are in the contest the same year. They also represent Schmidt’s second and third players in the classic.
