"One of the best motivational speakers I have ever heard!"

- Ian Parks
Unit Commander, CISM Team, UFV Instructer

Angus has been in the public eye as a professional football player for well over a decade now. The home grown star out of Richmond has been with the British Columbia Lions since 2001, and has been their starting center since 2003. Angus has been an All Canadian, multiple time conference All Star, lineman of the year nominee, lineman of the week winner, a "Friday Night Gladiator", 8 time team captain, and a 2 time Grey Cup Champion.

A long shot to make it pro, Angus did not start football until the 11th grade, and then missed 3 of his 5 college years due to illness. He is a model of determination and will, and has been speaking on this subject ever since realizing his hard fought dream in 2001. Since then, he has spoken nearly nonstop to over 1000 schools, organizations, teams, businesses, and at events, on the constant pursuit of your dreams, and the hard work and effort required to beat all the obstacles along the way.

With his wealth of insightful experiences, humorous stories and very sociable outgoing personality, Angus has become a sought after speaker, versatile enough to fit almost any need.
