The Beaumont, Texas, native developed one of the strongest offensive fronts at the Football Championship Subdivision level in 2015. The Cardinals’ front five led the nation in pass protection surrendering less than a half sack per game. In addition to protecting the quarterback, Lamar’s offensive line also helped produce the nation’s leading rusher in Kade Harrington. A unanimous All-America selection, Harrington became just the seventh player in the history of Division I football to rush for 2,000 yards in only 10 games. Harrington finished second in the balloting for the STATS FCS National Offensive Player of the Year award (FCS football’s version of the Heisman Trophy).
In 2014, Langston’s line blocked for one of the most prolific offenses in the nation. The line helped produce an offense that ranked fifth nationally in total offense (503 yards per game), seventh in passing (314 yards per game) and eighth in scoring (39.6 points per game).
During his time overseeing the offensive line, Langston produced seven All-Southland Conference selections, including two first-team honorees.
Prior to joining Lamar, Langston coached for three years at Trinity High School in Euless, Texas, and one year at Groveton High School.
Langston also coached in the collegiate ranks at Central Oklahoma, and at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, following his time as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Oklahoma.
Langston’s first collegiate coaching position came at his alma mater where he served for three seasons (1997-99) as tight ends and defensive line coach after one year as a graduate assistant.
Langston was a four-year letterman at center for the Sooners, where he was a team captain that helped guide Oklahoma to three bowl appearances during his time in Norman from 1991-95.
Langston earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Oklahoma in 1995 before getting his master’s degree from OU in 1999.
Langston and his wife Amy have three sons, Christian, Justice and Reagan Luke.
