While outside New Albany’s (Ind.) locker room following a boys basketball home game, you’d be hard-pressed not to find a swarm of young supporters donning Romeo Langford’s jersey.
The program’s recent success and a rise to stardom for the junior guard has made New Albany basketball and its threads a hot commodity, just ask two young members of the Wehmiller family. A Dec. 26 tweet posted by Jane Wehmiller, which was later shared by the Bulldogs’ account, shows a pair of young boys in awe after receiving their Langford jerseys as a Christmas gift. Watch the video below:
Langford led the one-loss Bulldogs to their first state championship since 1973 a season ago while averaging 29.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. The five-star guard – who recently wrote his name atop New Albany’s all-time scoring list – is again averaging 29.3 points per game this season for the Bulldogs (5-2), who are set to take part in the Hall of Fame Classic on Friday.
