About Jimmy Garvin

James Garvin, President, Langston Legacy Golf Corporation, Inc. James Garvin, President, Langston Legacy Golf Corporation, Inc.

Born to a migrant farm worker and a timber logger of humble means in Immokalee, Florida, Garvin began his mythical athletic journey playing baseball and beating drums for the Collier County, Florida public school system. At the early age of 16, Garvin was Collier County's first African American percussionist to be honored with the state of Florida’s prestigious John Phillip Sousa award for band excellence.

A star baseball pitcher and Collier County's three sport All American, Garvin was heavily recruited to study music, play basketball, football and/or baseball by several universities and colleges throughout the country. Finally, after much debate, his arrival in Washington was determined when Garvin accepted a full athletic scholarship to play baseball and attend Howard University under the tutelage of Chuck Hinton, former head Baseball Coach of Howard University and former Washington Senators’ professional baseball player.
