Dave Campbell’s Texas Football – the unofficial “bible” of high school football in the state – is on newsstands now.

No surprise, but the DCTF staff picks Lake Highlands to finish second in 9-5A behind Skyline. LH also didn’t make the magazine’s preseason Top 25, but the short piece on the Wildcats (page 205) is well-researched. It lists the LH-Skyline clash in Week 9 among its “Dream Tour” of the best games in the state every week.

Dave Campbell’s also shows a lot of love to LH running back Desmond Roland. He’s on the second team “Super Team” offense and is predicted to be the 9-5A Offensive MVP. Roland is also listed among the Top 300 recruits in the state and offensive lineman Kent Perkins is listed in an even more elite grouping of the Top 20 sophomores.

At 376 pages, there’s lots more info – just enough to get fans through to August two-a-days.
