The magazine football fans in Texas anticipate most is on newsstands starting today.

Host Communications and Texas sports icon Dave Campbell are proud to focus the cover of this year's edition on small town Texas Football heroes. Texas A&M’s Stephen McGee, Texas’ Colt McCoy, and TCU’s Tommy Blake earned a spot as Texas Football Coverboys. All three played at 3A schools and below.

“We think this cover and the accompanying story illustrate what we all know but what we seldom talk about, that small-town Texas high school football players are making an impact at the higher levels, and have been doing so since football started being played in Texas,” managing editor Jake Shaw said.
