Himmelsbach had a good snippet in the Globe yesterday about how Langford is getting there a couple hours early for every game and running through defensive tendencies of opposing teams with Mazzula and other staffers. I really like that they’re using resources on Langford this way rather than sticking him in Maine. Being a good team and individual defender goes a long way to giving him a high floor.Love this bit of Brad's philosophy. Learn good defensive habits early. Show you can defend, and know where you should be in the defensive scheme, and you'll get playing time as a youngster. Really smart approach, especially for kids who have been too focused for too long on becoming offensive superstars.
