High school football season is almost here and – for the first time – The Old Coach Friday Night Football Texas Magazine Walmart edition will be available to fans.
The Old Coach Friday Night Football Texas, or The Old Coach FNF Texas, is produced annually by The Old Coach, who publishes TheOldCoach.com with Scout.com, a digital media network, and A.E. Engine, a publishing company that produces similar high school football previews in Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and Alabama under the FNF brand.
The Old Coach FNF Texas Walmart edition, which retails for the regular price of $8.95, includes two unique features:
- A Walmart-exclusive cover featuring two of the top senior quarterbacks in the state of Texas: DeSoto’s Shawn Robinson and Austin Westlake’s Sam Ehlinger.
- A Walmart-exclusive 36-page Texas High School Football Record Book.
Robinson, who transferred from Denton Guyer this spring, is committed to TCU. Ehlinger, Ehlinger, who accounted for 70 total touchdowns as a junior, is committed to the University of Texas.
The record book features the top team, individual, coach and playoff records as compiled by Texas high school football Joe Lee Smith of texashighschoolfootballhistory.com. The cover of the record book features the state’s all-time touchdown king Johnathan Gray, formerly of Aledo High School.
Each of these special features can only be found in the special edition magazine which can only be found at Walmart locations throughout the state starting on July 9.
“We are very excited to be able to deliver to Texas high school football fans across the state this unique collection of publications,” said FNF Texas publisher Craig Baroncelli. “The record book is something that has been on our radar for years, and while we could not publish all of the records, we think readers will be pleased with what we produced. This book is a great way to relive great memories of Texas high school football.”
