I’ve interviewed over twenty-five NFL players for my upcoming book High School Football America in Texas – Amazing Football Stories from the Greatest Players of Texas and over the coming months leading up to its September 4 release, I’ll be putting out bonus audio from interviews with the players. Nine of those players are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

On today’s 2 Minute Drill podcast (below), you can listen to Earl Campbell talk about his recruitment to the University of Texas by legendary recruiting coordinator Kennth Dabbs.

Listen to Earl Campbell

Dabbs, who will also be featured in my book, was a great high school coach in Texas. He is the man that Westlake High School hired to start the Chaparral program that has produced Drew Brees and 2018 Super Bowl champion quarterback Nick Foles.
