Editor’s note: This is the second in an eight-part series previewing each of the units on the Texas State football team leading up to the start of fall practice on Aug. 6.

According to the council, sausages, such as hot dogs, have been around a long time. They were mentioned in Homer’s “Odyssey” as far back as the ninth century B.C.
