Summary
Pigskin Pulpit weaves together a compelling story, making use of extensive interviews with more than eighty Texas high school football coaches. Most of them entered the profession between the 1930s and the 1950s, and collectively their voices provide a character study of a unique breed of men whose deeply planted values were nurtured in the common experiences of traditional Texas culture, economic depression, and times of war. The book also surveys the portrayals and perceptions of Texas high school coaches in popular culture and scholarly works, as well as addresses the concerns that modern-day Texans have expressed over such football-related issues as education, brutality, racism, and competition
