Angus recently retired from professional football after playing 13 years for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. The Richmond born native who went to Vancouver College before attending Simon Fraser University played in 200 professional games placing him in the top 5 all-time for games played by a BC Lion.

Today, Angus travels North America speaking with companies, schools, and teams about what it really takes to make it and win.
