Steve Langton captained the Huskies’ track team, where he excelled in sprints and jumps. In 2004 he was third in the 100 meter dash at the America East championship, and the following year indoors placed third in the 55 meter dash and fourth in the long jump at the championship meet.
Dr. Ed Hardiman, the headmaster at St. John’s, and some of the school’s coaches made a video and tweeted it out to the brothers with a strong message of support from the Prep community.
Four years from now it’s a good bet the Langton brothers will both be members of the USA bobsled team in 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea -- maybe even on the same four-man team.
