There’s an important election this year, but this one does not involve Clinton, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Rubio or anyone over the age of 18.
It is the vote for coverboy on the The Old Coach Friday Night Football Texas magazine and local standout Major Tennison of Bullard is on the ballot.
For the first time the magazine is looking to give the fans a voice in this year’s cover selection process. The selection process will be decided by the fans in an online vote at http://www.fnfmagazine.com/tx-coverboy/.
Tennison is an all-state tight end candidate for the Panthers and has already comitted to Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns.
The Old Coach FNF Texas is co-published by A.E. Engine, a magazine publishing and marketing company that produces similar high school football previews in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Alabama under the FNF brand, and TheOldCoach.com, a Texas high school recruiting website which is a part of the Scout.com Network.
FNF Texas has 160 oversized, full-color pages and contains features and in-depth previews of 1,072 high school football programs in Texas. The magazine is available on newsstands in July and also available online at TheOldCoach.com.
The Old Coach has selected a total of 15 finalists from Texas, and the top four vote-getters in an online poll will earn the right to serve as coverboys for the 2016 edition. The online vote at http://www.fnfmagazine.com/tx-coverboy/ will be open until April 15.
