Coach Tony Langley is a remarkable person and guide for Steve Francis. He helped transform a boy playing basketball at a local fire station into a three time NBA All-Star. Francis credits Coach Langley often saying he made him learn each position on the court, even though he was clearly a point guard, and that helped him master the game. With determination and a big heart, Coach Langley makes it his goal to help as many kids as possible stay on the right path towards a successful life. Recently retired as a Detective Sergeant in Internal Affairs from the Metropolitan Police Department, Langley has coached basketball, football and baseball since 1982 in the Maryland community.
Sixty-two of Coach Langley’s former players have had thriving college careers, three of which played professional basketball internationally and four became NBA players.
