"Three yards and a cloud of dust" became a fitting cliché in football's formative years. Typical of early venues, Anson, which hosted Breckenridge in this 1922 contest, could boast neither grass nor bleachers. In those days fans would pull right up to the edge of the field in their trucks and flivvers to get a good view of the action.

The TSHA Press is pleased to announce that Pigskin Pulpit: A Social History of Texas High School Football Coaches by Ty Cashion is now available in paperback. The TSHA originally published Pigskin Pulpit in 1998. The book opened the Texas high school coaching profession to historical scrutiny for the first time, examining the men who shaped the game--and generations of players--in their own image. Tracing side-by-side the development of the game and the coaching profession from its beginnings to today, Cashion explains how this schoolboy avocation wove itself so tightly into the fabric of Texas culture. The Association's 111th Annual Meeting will take place March 810, 2007, at the Crowne Plaza Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio. We have on schedule 48 sessions on
