Paul Layne’s 500 Games of SMU Football


 

Paul Layne’s 500 Games of SMU Football

 

There’s nothing that will stop Paul Layne from attending a Southern Methodist University football game short of being sick — and when that happened, he still attended.

 

Layne’s diehard dedication to his alma mater’s football team was recently honored by the school with his own jersey and commemorative football marking his 500th consecutive attendance before the game against Houston Baptist. It was an accomplishment 46 years in the making.

 

“They introduced me down on the field, and to my surprise they gave me an SMU jersey, a blue one like they wear in the games. I may frame it and put it in my home office,” said Layne of the Layne-Rothwell Group in the Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Intown office. “I was also interviewed on the radio at the start of the second half.”

 

His amazing achievement and dedication are highlighted by the press and SMU during landmark years and games. This year was particularly special and garnered him attention from Fox 4’s Good Day morning show, a selection of radio interviews and a spotlight from ESPN.

 

Layne’s legendary love of SMU football began when he was a child, his parents toting him along to games starting at 2 years old.

 

As an SMU student, he was writing about the games as a student reporter but was so excited in the press box that his editor suggested he be a cheerleader instead. That cemented his dedication, and he attended every home and away game, even after he graduated.

 

When he realized he had a streak going, he doubled down on his efforts, doing his best to attend even when he was sick.

 

Paul Layne’s 500 Games of SMU Football

 

“The one story people like hearing the most is the time I came close to missing a game,” Layne recalled. “I was 41, and I came down with chicken pox. I looked on the schedule and saw, luckily, we had a home game. It happened to be Halloween, so I sat on the upper deck of the Cotton Bowl by myself and dressed as a scarecrow.”

 

His real estate partner, Trina Rothwell, said his love of SMU football is so infectious that she’s also gone above and beyond to make sure Layne doesn’t miss a game.

 

About five years ago, both of them were indisposed — Rothwell with a thrown out back and Layne with a bad reaction to antibiotics he was taking for an infected incision from dental surgery. Layne told Rothwell he may have to miss the game.

 

“There I am with my back not being able to move, and I said, ‘Not on my watch,’ ” Rothwell said. “I drove him to the La Madeleine across from the stadium, and he attended the game.”

 

“I’m really proud of him, and it’s something he really enjoys,” she added.

 

Layne’s spirit and dedication to SMU football have benefitted his real estate career with the Layne-Rothwell Group. Layne helps incoming and outgoing coaches and staff with their home buying needs. Rothwell also agreed to cover for Layne during game days.

 

“The attendance streak has opened the doors for Trina and I to be their agents. It’s brought in a lot of business,” Layne said. “They know I’m loyal.”

North Texas Giving Day is Thursday


 

North Texas Giving Day is Thursday

 

Thursday, September 20, is North Texas Giving Day, a day when we can all come together and rally behind the nonprofits that make our community a better place to live, work and play. This year North Texas Giving Day is especially meaningful to all of us at the Ebby Halliday Companies as it takes place on the heels of the recent launch of the Ebby Halliday Foundation.

 

Named in honor of Ebby Halliday Acers, the founder of Ebby Halliday Realtors and a prominent Dallas philanthropist who passed away in 2015 at age 104, the namesake foundation continues Ebby’s substantial philanthropic work across North Texas.

 

Ebby founded Ebby Halliday, REALTORS in 1945. The Dallas-based company, recently acquired by HomeServices of America, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, owns Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, which has been a member of the Ebby Halliday Family of Companies for a decade.

 

The Ebby Halliday Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, supports charitable and educational activities that serve women and children in need across our region.

 

“Each of us who had the good fortune of knowing Ebby was touched by the grace, fortitude and compassion with which she lived her life,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and chief executive officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies and a founding member of the board of directors of the Ebby Halliday Foundation. “Ebby had a very simple saying that she lived by, ‘Do something for someone every day.’ That small bit of wisdom served Ebby very, very well and has had a tremendous impact on many individuals and organizations in North Texas.”

 

Adds Ron Burgert, chief financial officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies and a founding member of the board of directors of the Ebby Halliday Foundation, “With the creation of the Ebby Halliday Foundation, we intend for Ebby’s impact to continue to be felt across our region for a long time.”

 

Until midnight Thursday, September 20, you’re encouraged to donate to one or more of the over 2,000 certified nonprofits at NorthTexasGivingDay.org. To donate to the Ebby Halliday Foundation, click here.
