Issue #20 of the TSL Extra is here, and this month's issue is another winner, featuring recruiting profiles of rising high school seniors Vince Hall and Phillip Brown, plus our ranking of the ten most influential players of the Beamer Bowl Era!

We've also got "Inside the Numbers" features on football ticket revenue and the financial boom in Tech athletics. "Inside TSL" returns with a quirky little feature about the TSL Extra covers.
