thePodcast: B.C. Lions great Angus Reid, toast of the town

ADVERTISEMENT
For the week of Feb. 25, 2024:

Angus Reid played 13 years in the Canadian Football League, winning two Grey Cups with the B.C. Lions. Number 64, who authored the book “Thank You Coach,” is now a motivational speaker and offensive line coach with the Vernon Panthers, B.C.’s reigning senior and junior varsity champions. 

Reid will be honoured Feb. 28 with the Jack Diamond Sports Personality of the Year Award at the RBC JCC Sports Dinner, to benefit the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver. It is the unofficial kickoff to the Lions’ 70th anniversary year, which includes the return of the Grey Cup to B.C. Place in November. 

“I was double lucky to be in an organization that was doing well at that time in my hometown, and a lot of people can’t script that for themselves,” said Reid, a Richmond-born Vancouver College and Simon Fraser University product. 

“We became the toast of the town for quite a while, with good reason. We won a lot. We had good characters on our team, with great management organization.”

Listen to host Bob Mackin’s full interview with Angus Reid. 

Plus, Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
