Popular Texans and Cowboys reporter Mark Lane dies

This past weekend saw the passing of Mark Lane, a well-liked and respected reporter for the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.

The news of Lane’s passing was verified by BloggingTheBoys.com, a Cowboys fan site that he had contributed to for a long period. But he was also the managing editor of @TheTexansWire and regularly contributed to other Cowboys-related programs and websites. He also supplied other sites with a variety of additional information.

His professional colleagues remember Lane’s impressive memory of NFL history. Co-workers recall him as a hard worker. BloggingtheBoys.com writer RJ Ochoa said Lane’s kindness really stood out.

“More impressive than his wealth of knowledge was Mark’s kindness and humility,” Ochoa wrote Sunday. “He always sought to help people and to ensure that they received proper credit for work that they compiled.

The world of Dallas Cowboys content and the world at large is a better place for having had Mark Lane in it. We should all strive to approach life with the same passion and graciousness that he did.”

Some of the NFL’s best-known media figures paid tribute to Lane on X (formerly Twitter) following his death.

Charean Williams of NBC Sports said of Lane, “one of the kindest, gentlest souls I have known.” He had exceptional statistical skills. Mark was among those who were given a terrible hand in life. He defeated childhood cancer and battled valiantly to survive long enough to have a lung transplant.

Veteran Houston Texans beat writer John McClain remembered how Lane persevered in his career despite health problems.

According to McClain, “Mark was always an extremely hard worker who loved covering the NFL.”
