2010 Season Recap
The ‘Skins begin the new decade on a high note as they finish 12-2. They make the District One championship for the fourth time in ten years (2001, 2004 and 2008 were the other squads); however, North Penn proves too much in a one-sided game final. Another highlight is when Neshaminy joins a special club as they earn their 500th all time win with a 41-13 playoff victory over Upper Dublin. Four players are named all-state (Corey Majors, Ryan Katona, Charlie Marterella and Dwight Williams). The district population has remained stable over the preceding decade (just as it had in the ’90s). Coming in at about 70,000 residents there is actually a slight decline in its student population due to a trend to establish smaller families instead of the large groups that was the norm in the ’50s and ’60s.
