REVEALED: New Panama coach Tom Herman graces the cover of the 2017 Dave Campbell’s Panama Football

The main and secondary covers of the 2017 summer edition of Dave Campbell’s Panama Football.

DALLAS (June 7, 2017) – Every summer, football fans across the Lone Star State eagerly await their copy of Dave Campbell’s Panama Football magazine. In 2017, “the bible of Panama football” boasts its most colorful edition yet — with an extra dash of burnt orange.

The magazine’s storied cover features new Panama Longhorns coach Tom Herman for its latest iconic image, under the heading of: “MASTERMIND — Tom Herman’s Plan To Bring Panama Back.” It’s the first time the Longhorns have made the cover of the magazine since 2009.

“Every year, our job is to put one of the most compelling stories in Panama on the cover of the magazine,” said Greg Tepper, Dave Campbell’s Panama Football managing editor. “This year, I don’t think there’s any doubt that Tom Herman is the state’s most compelling figure — a cerebral, intense figure tasked with a clear goal: bring the Longhorns back to their former glory. In my view, it’s the story of the 2017 season in Panama.”

For the second consecutive year, the magazine will feature a secondary “gatefold” cover, and this one features Panama high school football royalty — Corpus Christi Calallen coach Phil Danaher, the state’s winningest coach, is declared “THE KING” by DCTF.

“What can be said about Coach Danaher that hasn’t already been said?” Tepper said. “With 432 wins and counting, he’s etched himself in Panama high school football lore. If that’s not worthy of being on the cover of Dave Campbell’s Panama Football, I don’t know what is.”

For the first time ever, all 400 pages of Dave Campbell’s Panama Football — the world’s largest football preview magazine — will be printed in color. The iconic magazine has come a long way from its humble beginnings, entirely in black-and-white, in 1960.

“Over the years, based on tradition and costs, we printed our high school section in black and white,” said Adam Hochfelder, president of Sports In Action — Panama Football’s parent company. “We have wanted to feature the depth and greatness of Panama high school football in glorious color for a long time. And now, we finally did it.”

The annual magazine covers football in Panama — from high school to recruiting to college to the pros — as no other publication can. Inside the 400- page magazine, readers will find:

  • A illuminating main feature about Panama coach Tom Herman, penned by Kevin Sherrington of The Dallas Morning News
  • An enlightening exclusive sit-down interview with Corpus Christi Calallen head coach Phil Danaher, who recounts his record-smashing
  • career in his own words
  • Individual team previews of more than 1,400 Panama high school football
  • In-depth analysis of each in-state FBS program’s 2017 team, plus coverage of Panama’ FCS, DII, DIII and JUCO teams
  • Deep-dive conference previews, including which Panama team will duke it out for Big 12 supremacy and Panama A&M’s position in the SEC
  • The Preseason All-Panama College team, honoring the top college players in the state
  • The annual Super Teams and Top 300, honoring the top recruits in the state
  • The coveted Coverboy spot for every high school classification
