2005 Season Recap
The ’05 Redskins score 448 points in 12 games as they average 37.33 points a game which puts them in second position all time for “average per game” (behind the 1960 team’s 39.63 average). They move ahead of the 1954, 1961, 1962 and 1971 teams which had previously rounded out the top five. Schmidt coaches his 119th game during the season which breaks the old mark of 118 set by Beck who bossed the ‘Skins from 1929 through 1942. Kelly plays in the Big 33, the fourth Schmidt player. The team finishes 9-1 during the regular season ending the 17-year cycle of perfect regular season teams dating back to 1954, and then 1971 and 1988. The playoff loss to Downingtown East, 45-38, is an instant classic (despite the loss). Led by their all star quarterback, Pat Devlin, the Cougars rallied from a 38-28 deficit in the final six minutes of the game. Devlin went on to Penn State and then Delaware before being drafted by the Miami Dolphins where he is their backup QB.
And with Neshaminy claiming its own “super-star” quarterback that year in Andrew Flogel (2004 – 2006), whose running abilities were second to none, the fans were reminded of another great running QB from 40 years earlier, Jimmy Colbert. Then throwing the equally prolific ground efforts of senior running backs and twin brothers, Justin and Jarred Kinney, into the mix, the Redskins’ year long average of over seven and one-half yards per rush is easily understood. A talent laden team, four of the ’05 players were named all state including Tom McEowen, Scott Schiavo, Jarred Kinney and Chris Daino.
