The Texas D1 Ambassadors have many storied alumni at the college, NBA and overseas pro level. One of my favorite players and families over the years has been Brian Long a 25 year old 6'5" wing guard from Killeen High School, Texas. Brian first came to play for me when he was 12 years old and is a high character young man from a high character family. His father,, Henry Pantoja is a highly decorated US Army NCO.
During his career at Killeen High School (TX), Long earned All District and All Region Honors earning a scholarship offer to Division One, Texas-Rio Grande Valley. A late coaching change caused him to re-open his recruitment and Long decided to stay close to home at University of Mary Hardin Baylor.
Long had an outstanding collegiate career earning many honors including 4 time American Southwest Conference Player of the Week, 2 times American Southwest Conference West Division First Team, and American Southwest Conference's All Conference Team.
Brian completed his first year as a professional in the 2019-20 season playin Bosnia, in their top league, LIGA 12 Bosnian Basketball League. He played for KK Bratunac.
Long averaged 6 points/3 rebounds per game as a first year pro. The 6'5" athletic wing guard is a tough defender and an adequate shooter. His strengths are as an athletic slasher who rebounds his position exceptionally well.
Brian is currently looking to hire a new agent as well as to find his next job overseas. Feel free to contact him directly at 1-912-980-4857 or if you're in need of a reference you can contact me, Coach Max Ivany at 1-512-773-1026
