From a dream to reality, basketball team captain works to achieve lifelong goal

It all started fifteen years ago as a way to stay out of trouble. A pickup game of basketball developed into a lifelong goal to take the game to the top. That is the dream of this year’s basketball team captain, Chris Lang.
Lang grew up in Fort Worth, Texas; in an area where many of the youth turned to a life of trouble.
“Life was pretty tough, it was easy to run with the wrong crowd, and it was hard not to run with them. I decided to play basketball to stay out of trouble. I got good and wanted to keep doing it. It got me through school.”
