TAR15: Herbert Lang & Nathaniel Lofton -Teammates

Herbert and Nathaniel
Biography
Herbert Lang (32); Nathaniel Lofton (28)
Hometown: Brinkley, Ark. / New Orleans
Occupation: Harlem Globetrotters
Relationship: Teammates

Their athletic talent brought these two friends together five years ago when they met at the Harlem Globetrotters training camp. While getting to know each other, Herbert and Nathaniel discovered that their occupation and need to entertain others were not the only things they had in common.  They both live in Louisiana, have two children and shared the same college basketball coach.  

Recently, Herb and Nate lost one of their best friends and teammate, Chris Richardson, who passed away in December and both continue to struggle with that loss.  The three were commonly referred to as the "three amigos" throughout their inner circle.      

Herbert believes he can get along with anyone on the planet and that he brings joy and laughter to all corners of the globe. Standing at 6'3," Herb is known among his colleagues as "Flight Time."  Nathaniel, who goes by the name "The Big Easy," towers over the competition at 6'9," and admits to being worried that seating could present a problem on some of the flights.  

Both have traveled extensively with the Globetrotters. Herbert has traveled to over 60 countries, and Nathaniel has traveled to over 30 countries. Despite their love of exploring new places, and their extensive knowledge of other countries, they're eager to see how well they can travel together when it is just the two of them.  

Even if their fancy footwork does not translate to winning the $ 1 million prize, they both are confident that their relationship will remain the same regardless of where they end up in the Race

Rooting for them as one of my top favorites! I think they have what it takes to win.

Love by basketball association!

I saw the globetrotters in action once in Melbourne (At the state Netball and Hockey center, oddly enough)

I finally get my non-actor-yet-still-entertainment-industry team!

For now it's still slanting towards dislike for me for this team. They are competitive basketball players and definitely will bring alot hell more competition to the race.

Final 3 material, looks boring to me.. hopefully they don't win.

Herb Lang and Nathaniel Lofton 
 
SHREVEPORT-He has traveled the world entertaining crowds around the country and around the world with his teammates. Soon he will be traveling with only one of those teammates and together take part in one of the greatest road trips of their lives.
Herb Lang, a 1998 graduate of Centenary College and member of the Harlem Globetrotters, and fellow teammate Nathaniel Lofton will compete against 11 other teams on the CBS program, The Amazing Race 15.

Lang attended and played basketball at Centenary College, graduating in 1998 with a degree in health sciences and physical education. The oldest of nine children, he went on to star at Centenary College, where he was a first-team all-conference selection and a conference scoring champ. During his senior year at Centenary, he won the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Slam Dunk Contest. Shortly thereafter, he was invited to the Harlem Globetrotters training camp in 1999 and will soon begin his 11th year with the team.

According to the teammates, their athletic talent brought the two friends together five years ago when they met at the Harlem Globetrotters training camp. While getting to know each other, Lang and Lofton discovered that their occupation and need to entertain others were not the only things they had in common.  They both live in Louisiana, have two children and shared the same college basketball coach.

Recently, they lost one of their best friends and teammate, Chris Richardson, who passed away in December - and both continue to struggle with that loss. The three were commonly referred to as the "three amigos" throughout their inner circle.

Lang believes he can get along with anyone on the planet and that he brings joy and laughter to all corners of the globe. Standing at 6'3," he is known among his colleagues as "Flight Time." Lofton, who goes by the name "The Big Easy," towers over the competition at 6'9," and admits to being worried that seating could present a problem on some of the flights.

Both have traveled extensively with the Globetrotters. Lang has traveled to more than 60 countries, while Lofton has traveled to more than 30. Despite their love of exploring new places, and their extensive knowledge of other countries, they're eager to see how well they can travel together when it is just the two of them.

Even if their fancy footwork does not translate to winning the $ 1 million prize, they both are confident that their relationship will remain the same regardless of where they end up in the Race.

I love their "we have been good friends forever dynamic. And "Don't make excuses, make a CHANGE" should be their motto!

And I especially love that they applied because they like TAR, and weren't recruited! :jumpy:

Will be fun to see them in action!

I actually kind of like them for now but who knows, they might turn out to be really aggresive and too competitive for my liking. But we'll see.

Guess they'll be the physical contenders of this season, but hopefully they're more of the Derek and Drew than the Eric and Jeremy. I'm feeling kinda positive about them right now, they don't give me the typical arrogant alpha-male-team feeling.
