Drive to Win: Josh Angulo, SF Flyers

Bookmark and Share

As a wide receiver and defensive back, Josh Angulo helped the Roosevelt Rough Riders win a state championship on the gridiron this fall. Now, as a defenseman for the Sioux Falls Flyers, the goal remains the same.

"Just like the football season," Angulo says, "We expected to be there at the end and I expect to be there at the end now and hopefully we can get there as a team and do it together."

Angulo's teams rely heavily on him, but not entirely because of his athletic prowess.

"Josh is obviously a good all around athlete," Flyers Coach Bruce Abels says, "But I think the thing that kinda surprises me a little bit is he's very even keeled and he's a good leader which is something that obviously you need from your captain."

"I just try to do what I can for the team and help the team." Angulo says.

Whatever the case, he has a big inflluence on how his team plays and his success in football looks to be carrying over to the ice.

"I think Josh has a lot of inner confidence to begin with and he doesn't outwardly show it sometimes," Abels says, "But I think coming off that state championship he's in that mode of wanting to win and I think that drive and determination comes across to his teammates, especially in practice."

"I just want us to be there at the end and win a state title," Angulo says, "That's really the only goal I have."

So what sport is he better at? Football or hockey?

"It's hard for me to say," Abels says, "I think he's a good athlete at both. He's an excellent, excellent hockey player and I've only seen him play a few football games, but from my perspective I think he's a good hockey player."

"I'm not sure," Angulo says, "You might have to just show up and tell me."

The Flyers are currently 11-3 on the year.
