Coach Lou Lang analyzes a play with senior quarterback and captain Isaac Sines during a game.

Lou Lang has always been a football fanatic ever since a young age. Lang took his longtime enthusiasm for the sport one step further this year becoming a CV varsity assistant football coach.

Lang has experienced a lot of firsts this year since taking on this new position.

“Not that I thought it was different per se, but the level of time and commitment both by the entire coaching staff and the players put into being successful. So much goes into the offseason from the day the season ends, and then as we get more towards the end of the school year there is a mixture of conditioning as well," Lang said. "We roll right into 7 on 7 competitions and then our team camp prior to getting started in August."

Long practice days, hours of film, and precise detail are just a few of things that build this team to greatness.

Lang gave some insight on what a normal practice day looks like for the team.

“In season, a normal day usually has some sort of film work either on your own or with the team. The actual physical part of practice will consist of individual work and team work both offensive and defensive, with a mixture of special teams work as well," he said. "For the players, practices are much more physical at the beginning of the week and tapers off as they rest their bodies and prepare their minds for game day."

Athletes and coaches know it is easy to say they want to be successful and win, but Lang knos those who actually stay consistent through the process and put in the extra steps to be great will be the ones who actually see those results.

“Having the desire to prepare. Meaning the willingness to do all the little things when no one is watching. The other and what I believe truly allows you to win at a higher level is having the desire to compete not only for you but for the guy next to you. How and why you do that is by developing those strong relationships with each other and that goes both for the players and the coaches. Those strong relationships build trust and when everyone trusts one another that is when you have something special”, he said.

Lang knows he has something special with his 2022 team. 

“The one thing I know is that we have great players. They want to do the right thing and are committed to doing so. I believe I have a good relationship with the players. I am hoping I have gained or am gaining their trust, and I hope they know I want nothing more than to see them be successful on and off the field”, he said.

Lang has had a tremendous start to this year so far. We look forward to seeing how he and his team do in the weeks to follow.
