2020, Human Development/Achievement
Angus Reid is somebody who found a way to make his dream a reality. He recently retired from professional football after playing 13 years for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. The Richmond Born native and Simon Fraser University graduate played in 200 professional games placing him in the top 5 all time for games played by a BC Lion. Throughout his career, Angus has been a 3- time all-star, 2-time Grey Cup Champion and 5-time team captain.
Today Angus has become much more than simply a football star. He is a true fixture in his community. He has written a weekly newspaper column for the Vancouver Province, hosted a radio show on the team 1040 and is currently the host of Global TV’s “CrimeStoppers” and “The Monday Morning Blitz”. He speaks non-stop across both Canada and the U.S to businesses on what it really takes to make it and win. He has two highly successful Tedx talks and just recently released his first book – “Thank You Coach” which has already become an Amazon best seller.
