Description

In this session, I had the opportunity to catch up with Angus Reid (@angusreid64) — my old college teammate from Simon Fraser.

Angus recently retired from professional football after playing 13 amazing years for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. The BC native played in 200 professional games placing him in the top 10 all time for games played by a BC Lion. Throughout his career, Angus has also been a 3-time all-star, 2-time Grey Cup Champion and 5-time team captain.

A long shot to make it and considered too short and too small by pro football standards, Angus beat the odds. He didn’t even begin playing football until the eleventh grade. He then missed three of his five collegiate seasons with a severe stomach ailment, making it back for his senior season and becoming only the 6th All American in school history.

Angus became the 4th overall pick in the 2001 CFL college draft by the Toronto Argonauts, only to be cut by them following his first training camp. It has been through sheer relentlessness and determination that Angus was able to not only fulfill his seemingly impossible dream, but also be able to do it longer than almost anybody else.

Today Angus has become much more than simply a football star. He’s a true fixture in his community and speaks non-stop across both Canada and the U.S to businesses, schools and sports teams on what it really takes to make your dreams a reality.

During our conversation, Angus talks about what it took to fulfill his seemingly impossible dream.

Enjoy!
