The Neshaminy Redskins were able to defeat the Bensalem Owls 42-33 Friday night without head coach Mark Schmidt.
According to the official Neshaminy Football website, this win brings the Redskin's record to 6-2.
Schmidt was suspended for one game following the school district's investigation into an incident between the coach and a student athlete at last Friday's game against Council Rock South.
NBC10 reported that Schmit watched the game from the press box last night and only commented that he is focusing on the players right now.
"The support I've had through this whole process - from friends, fellow teachers and coaches, and players - has been amazing. I'm pretty blown away by it," Schmidt said earlier this week to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"I guess the phrase 'old school' is something you have to reevaluate," he said to the Inquirer about trying to change his coaching style. "That's the way things are these days."
It was reported that Schmidt grabbed the athlete by the jersey during a heated moment after the player committed an unsportsmanlike conduct foul that resulted in a penalty.
Schmidt will return to the team next week and will lead the team at home against the Abington Ghosts.
Schmidt has been the Redskins' head coach for 18 seasons and holds the record for the most wins, with a record of 139-60, and the most games coached in school's history, according to Neshaminy Football's website.
