The Texas Lyceum tackles topic of “Big Business of Football in Texas”

The Texas Lyceum

Football took center stage at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth Friday night as the Texas Lyceum, a non-profit, non-partisan statewide leadership group, welcomed several hundred participants to discuss the big business of football in Texas.  Those in attendance included coaches, athletes, business leaders, broadcasters and interested citizens, who took part in topics such as ethics and leadership, the role of the student-athlete, concussions and brain health, recruiting and the impact of sports on our economy and our communities.

Headlining the event was a fireside chat featuring Cedar Hill head coach Joey McGuire, Southlake Carroll head coach Hal Wasson and Lubbock Independent School District Athletic Director Mark Ball.

You can listen to my chat with Coach Ball about the event on Thursday night’s High School Football America Radio Show below.
