The inaugural Texas Sports Hall of Fame Book Festival, coming Saturday to the museum, has a new addition to its lineup, and it’s a familiar name to Central Texas readers.

It’s none other than Dave Campbell.

The former Tribune-Herald sports editor and founder of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Magazine will sign copies of the summer edition of the magazine from 1-2 p.m. Saturday at the festival. Food trucks from Pokey O’s and Gordo’s Tacos will also be on hand.

The festival will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and will feature free admission to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. Free VIP tickets are available and entitle visitors to preferred seating and entry into signed book drawings. Email Jay Black at to reserve.

Sixteen other authors will sign copies of their Texas-themed sports books throughout the day, including former Dallas Cowboys great Mel Renfro at 10:30 a.m.
