I spoke with Mike a few times while he was shopping for a publisher. He shared with me a lot about the story and his research. This book is an important one for anybody serious about the history of the league, as this is really the only material that I'm aware of that draws information about the 1952 Dallas Texans directly from the family who owned the team. Really looking forward to this coming out and thanks to Mike for all the work in pulling this book together. It is a much-needed piece in the NFL history library about a team that it's almost impossible to find reliable information about.

Just now seeing your post Jackson and thanks so much my good friend. We're cranking along and man I never knew how much work goes into getting a book out. I will never again take for granted the amount of energy that any book I pick up and read takes. I'll keep everyone posted as to the revisions and updates as the release date gets closer.
