2013 Augie Ciancone Memorial Award Male Recipient
When Josiah first started playing football back at the ripe old age of 9, he had no desire to be quarterback. It wasn’t until his second year Pee Wee league team found themselves without one that he reluctantly moved into that position. It didn’t take long for his talent to shine through and ever since, there’s been no turning back for this quarterback.
As captain of the Mount Boucherie Secondary School’s Bears, he was the starting quarterback for the past three seasons and named as an MVP. He was selected to play on the BC Rising Stars team and helped lead them to defeat Team Alberta. He was also selected for Team BC where he competed against the Texas All-Star team as well as Team Europe.
Equally as comfortable with a basketball in his hands, Josiah was captain of the Mount Boucherie Bear’s basketball team in both grades 11 and 12. In 2013 he was also named the team MVP.
Aside from his leadership in sports, Josiah is a leader in the classroom and despite a heavy course load, including physics, calculus, chemistry and biology, he has maintained a 3.8 GPA.
