Overview

Mayfield's Bulldogs: Out of the Wilderness and Into the Promised Land chronicles the remarkable history of Borger (Texas) High School football under legendary West Texas high school coach Gene Mayfield. After taking over a forlorn program at Borger in 1958, Mayfield quickly turned it around, winning Borger's first district title in his initial year at the helm. Subsequent Mayfield teams won three more district titles, and his 1962 squad achieved the school's first No. 1 statewide ranking en route to the state finals. All told, during Mayfield's seven years at Borger, 1958-64, the Bulldogs averaged a 9-2 season record. The book reviews in depth each of Mayfield's seven seasons at Borger, and tells readers what's become of the star players on each of Mayfield's teams. The author, who was a Borger High student during the Mayfield era, selects all-Mayfield-era teams, both for the Bulldogs and their opponents, and concludes with a look at the secrets to Mayfield's unique success at Borger.
