Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Texas schoolboy football than Harold V. Ratliff, who played
during the first years of operation of the University Interscholas-
tic League and subsequently covered every facet of the sport as
a dedicated sports analyst. In Autumn's Mightiest Legions, Ratliff
presents a stirring portrayal of what has been described as Texas'
most celebrated product, high school football.
Texas, justifiably, has long enjoyed the reputation of producing
on a continuing basis the finest high school football teams in the
nation (certain states, notably Pennsylvania, might have a few
strong remarks to make regarding this). With a colorful, profes-
sional style, well-documented by facts, Ratliff demonstrates the
reasons for Texas football prowess.
The Texian Press again has produced a publication of out-
standing merit. This reviewer has a single criticism, and it is
constructive. A separate listing of state championship playoffs
from district winners to state finalists would be a valuable addi-
tion. Perhaps the second edition of this book, and there will
doubtless be one, will contain such a listing.
