Dave Campbells Texas Football
The 400-page, all-color magazine covers football in Texas, from high school to recruiting to college to the pros. This year’s edition will feature an insider’s look at how UTSA’s Jeff Traylor and Texas Tech’s Joey McGuire rose from Texas high school football icons to college football stars, and what it means for both sports, written by Texas Football‘s Mike Craven.
“Since I was six years old, I’ve read every word of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine each year front to back, so to be asked to be on the cover of a magazine that previews over 1,400 high schools plus all the college teams in our state is an awesome honor and something that will always be very special to me,” Traylor said. “Joey is a dear friend of mine who I have a ton of respect for, so that makes it even more special.”
Traylor is the first Roadrunner to be featured on the cover of the annual magazine, known as the “Bible of Texas Football” to its thousands of readers. Larry Coker, the first UTSA head coach, appeared in a photo box on the cover of the 2012 summer edition.
“The toughest decision we have to make every year is the cover of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football,” managing editor Greg Tepper said. “You can’t miss, because it goes down in Texas football history. We always look for the most compelling story in the state that year. We always knew that Texas high school football coaches were exceptional, and the remarkable rise of UTSA under former Gilmer coach Jeff Traylor coupled with the infectious former Cedar Hill coach Joey McGuire taking over at Texas Tech is proof positive of that. We think this is an inflection point in Texas football history — college football is realizing just how valuable Texas high school football coaches are — and that’s certainly worthy of being on the cover of Texas Football.“
The 63rd annual Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine will hit stores throughout Texas this summer and can be purchased in advance by visiting TexasFootball.com.
Traylor is entering his third season at the helm of the UTSA program. The 2021 Conference USA Coach of the Year and AFCA FBS Region 4 Coach of the Year has led the Roadrunners to a 19-7 record in his first two years at the helm, the best two-year ledger by any UTSA coach.
Under Traylor’s tutelage, the Roadrunners enjoyed a record-setting campaign in 2021, winning their first 11 games and entering the top 25 for the first time in program history in a season that resulted in a 12-2 record, a conference championship and a second straight and third overall bowl game.
UTSA will open its 12th season on Sept. 3 against Houston with kickoff set for 2:30 p.m. at the Alamodome in a game that will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.
