2007 Dave Campbell's Texas Football hits the shelves starting today
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&MÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Stephen McGee, TexasÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Colt McCoy, and TCUÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Tommy Blake earned a spot as Texas Football Coverboys. All three played at 3A schools and below.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“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,Ã¢â‚¬Â managing editor Jake Shaw said.

- The State Farm High School Top 25 rankings;
- GearBoss High School Coaches of the Year;

- Reviews of each Division I college programÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s signing class and look-backs at their classes from five years ago.
