  • DCTF Now Offering Digital Archives for all Previous Magazines 1960-Present

    NEW Archives Now Available to Subscribers

    Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, the “bible” of the sport in the Lone Star State, has partnered with the nonPareil Institute of Plano to create a one of a kind digital archive that will allow former Texas high school football players and their family members to find the exact page they or their loved ones appeared on back in the day.

    Every summer for the last 59 years football fans in Texas eagerly anticipate their copy of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine. Until now, only the most savvy magazine collectors managed to hold on to their vintage copies. Early editions have sold for as much as $1,000. Now, thanks to a unique partnership with the nonPareil Institute of Plano, Texans will be able to find their names and their favorite team previews from 1960 to present day. They can view or download the page they want, print it out and own a piece of Texas Football history of which they played a part.

    In addition to the wages this project is providing, new subscribers have the opportunity to give back by using the promo code “Autism” during the month of April. For every new subscription using that code Dave Campbell’s will donate $10 to the Non-Pareil Institute in honor of Autism Awareness Month.

    Subscriptions to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football may be purchased online at www.texasfootball.com/subscribe

    The archive is available to subscribers at www.texasfootball.com/archive

    This will be fascinating to see all of the changes that have taken place at high schools around the state over the last 60 years.

      I went straight to the 1960 schoolboy section and the first article was a section on the domination of West Texas football. From the article, it's a newer region with a lot of growth. The athletes are just better there, they say. Bigger and faster. Yeah things change.

            Thank for this heads-up. I subscribed over the weekend. When I logged on, the archives only had the summer issues from 1960 to 1979. But clearly they are a work in progress as I noticed today they added 1980-1984. So we just have to be patient. The ones I've looked at thus far are a real treasure trove as you see recognizable NFL and college stars mentioned as high school stars. Besides the previews, there are two added benefits, as far as high school goes. The first is that the TSWA All-State teams are listed and second, each SWC school's recruiting class for that year is listed.
