In less than 24 hours, the essential guide to Denton area football will be on your lawn, in a newsstand or tucked away at your favorite gas station.

The DRC Football 2014 preview section will be in tomorrow’s paper. The 120-page section will cover all 12 area high schools and as always, there’s an extensive amount of North Texas coverage from Brett Vito.

The Record-Chronicle has earned six straight Top 10 honors in the Associated Press Sports Editors’ special section category for newspapers of our size.

And we think this year’s preview section lives up to its predecessors.

Along with Vito’s thorough UNT section, Adam Boedeker takes a look at Guyer’s chances of success as it moves up to the state’s highest classification. I featured the area’s top two running backs — Argyle senior Nick Ralston and Sanger junior Tre’von Jackson.

And don’t forget about the previews for each of our high schools, the preseason all-area team, a look at local players in college football, to name just a few items in the section.

If you still have an excuse for not picking it up, remember that it only costs 50 cents.

I know I make the same joke every year, but each year it continues to be relevant.

I can’t even buy a candy bar out of our vending machine with 50 cents. Fifty cents won’t get me a song on the juke box. It might get me an avocado slice on a taco, but even that’s pushing it.

So if you are remotely interested in the area’s football landscape, go pick up the football section in tomorrow’s paper.

It’s the only map you are going to need.
