About

My name is Jeff Organ.  Now living in the Texas Hill Country, I have avidly followed soccer in the United States since 1974. This blog is intended to focus specifically on soccer in Texas…as there is not exactly a plethora of coverage of the sport (on any level) by the statewide general media.  Those looking for the latest rumors, transfers or detailed game results will not find them on this blog.  There are other outstanding sites that provide this type of time-sensitive news. Instead my aims are to establish a consolidated one-stop site for news and opinion on our State’s soccer teams and players, to provide a Texas perspective on national and international soccer stories and to uncover some of the legacy that makes up the rich history of this sport here.

I will also occasionally write about soccer stories from the rest of the Americas. Because of our location, Texas has a close connection to the Mexican and many other leagues in the Americas, that may not be shared by other parts of the country.  These regional stories are typically lightly covered by the largely Northeast based and European focused national media.

Since I am currently a season ticket holder for both the Houston Dynamo and San Antonio FC, there will be a larger number of posts involving these teams and the leagues they play in.   I welcome those who support other teams and leagues in Texas to contribute to this site. Feel free to contact me jeff@txsoccerjournal.com if you have any comments, thoughts or would like to join me in adding to the soccer discussion here.
