Relive one of the most magical seasons in Houston NFL history with my newaudiobook, Red, White, and Columbia Blue: Chasing the Dream with the 1979 Houston Oilers, distributed by Gow Media Publishing. My goal was to commemorate NFL history and the 40th anniversary of the momentous 1979 season through the stories of the Houston Oilers legends who lived it.

My NFL history book, The Game before the Money: Voices of the Men Who Built the NFL, published by the University of Nebraska Press, is acompilation of interviews I had with forty NFL legends from the 1930s – 1970s, providing an unprecedented look at NFL history from their perspective.

In addition to The Game Before the Money Podcast, I also produce The Texas Sports Hall of Fame’s Podcast. This one hones in on Texas sports legends and their unforgettable and often unknown stories and insights.
