Angus anchored the offensive line for the BC Lions ever since becoming the teams starting center in 2003.
Originally drafted 4th overall in the 2001 CFL draft by the Toronto Argonauts, Reid was quickly moved to the Montreal Allouetes. He spent his first season in Montreal, until being traded home to the BC Lions in week 15. After playing for 3 teams in his first year, Angus settled in and has been a Mainstay with the Lions ever since.
In his pro career, Reid has been a CFL all star, multiple time conference all star, “lineman of the week” winner, nominee for lineman of the year, a “Friday Night Gladiator”, 8 time team Captain, and 2 time Grey Cup champion.
Angus played his college football at Simon Fraser University on a full athletic scholarship. He was the fifth Reid boy to attend SFU, and the third to play football there on scholarship. He redshirted his first year, and then became the team’s starting right guard as a red shirt freshman.
Angus missed the next three seasons (‘96 – ‘98) with a terrible stomach illness. He lost nearly 100lbs and looked as though football was over for good. Reid fought and made it all the way back to start for the Clan at left guard for the ’99 season. Due to his medical redshirt seasons, he still had a senior season available, and he made the most of it. Reid moved to center, was voted team captain, and went on to be only the 6th All American in Simon Fraser football history.
Before returning to university for his junior and senior seasons, Reid went to Germany and played a season with his brother Bruce, for the GFL’s Hamburg Blue Devils. After missing 3 seasons due to illness, Reid went to Germany to test his ability to still play the game. He Helped the Blue Devils along the defensive line, and participated in the’99 Euro Bowl championship game.
High school (1992-93)
Along with his 4 older brothers, Angus attended the legendary Vancouver College. Reid didn’t start football until the 11th grade, and amazingly, didn’t even become a starter until his senior year. That final season however, proved to be a very successful one. Reid became a two way starter, was voted team captain, was an offensive and defensive league all star, a provincial all star, voted high school lineman of the year, and led the Fighting Irish to the provincial championship game.
