Fans of legendary Texas football hero Earl Campbell will have the chance to meet the Tyler Rose in Houston on June 28.

Campbell will be signing autographs at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston starting at 12:30 pm and will also be selling pre-order forms for the 20th anniversary re-release of his biographical movie, The Legend of Earl Campbell, due in August.

The movie tracks Campbellโ€™s life from the rose fields near Tyler to high school football stardom, his Heisman Trophy year leading the Texas Longhorns to the national title, and his pro career leading up to his induction into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1991.

For more details or other Campbell memorabilia, check his MySpace page or his Web site.
