Kentucky School F/T Deaf's Billy LangeA career in high school athletics was something Billy Lange wanted ever since he was a star athlete at Florida School for the Deaf.
Danville, Ky., was not a stage where his childhood fantasies played. Lange had never even been to the town of about 16,000 before a loving gesture left him stranded in Boyle County for a week in the summer of 1988.
Fast forward 29 years and Lange, 55, has now spent the majority of his life in Danville. On Dec. 1 he officially retired from Kentucky School for the Deaf, where he was most recently the athletic director and volleyball coach, but he’s worn just about every coaching hat the school has to offer.
Lange has his wife, Amy, and a shoddy timing gear to thank for his unexpected career stop.
