Angus Reid is a former offensive lineman who played in the Canadian Football League. A native of Richmond, BC, Reid went to Simon Fraser University and played football for the Simon Fraser Clan. Drafted fourth overall in the 2001 CFL Draft, Reid started his career with the Montreal Alouettes but was traded later that year to the BC Lions, where he enjoyed a 12-year career, winning two Grey Cups and being named a CFL All-Star in 2011, all as a member of the Lions.
From a physical and talent perspective, Angus Reid had no business playing professional football for 13 seasons and as a young offensive lineman, Reid struggled to make it at the professional football level until a full coaching change placed him in the ever-capable hands of Coach Dan Dorazio. What occurred over their 11-year player/coach relationship helped him initially excel on the field as well as later in life. Angus has recently released his first book – Thank You, Coach, which has already become an Amazon bestseller. The book expands on his never-ending gratitude for the good fortune he has been granted by those who have helped shape his success.
Today, Angus lives in Metro Vancouver with his wife and young family but he travels North America speaking with companies, schools, and teams about what it really takes to make it and win. His successful TEDx talks, “Why We Need High School Football” and “Mastering the Skill of Trust” have garnered him both praise and respect.
