High School Football Bibliography

bibliography.jpgThe Texas Sports Hall of Fame pays special attention to high school sports and Jay Black has compiled a bibliography of almost 50 titles on football.
Curator Jay Black's introduction reads:
"The following is a list of books about Texas High School Football that are contained in the museum's collection. I hope that it proves useful as a starting point for research on the subject. I'm sure that there are plenty of team histories that have been written that I am not aware of. If you know of a book that should be included in this list please contact me at jay@tshof.org."
