Josh Anderson brings unfaltering work ethic on and off the ice for Briercrest

Posted: September 26, 2015

If you had a nickel for every time Briercrest Clippers' winger Josh Anderson gave less than 100% effort, you'd be flat broke. The third year forward from Dundurn, Saskatchewan exhibits remarkable work ethic every shift and has emerged as a key component of Briercrest's hockey program. 

Josh is completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities at Briercrest, and has his sights set on Education after graduation.

"When I leave Briercrest I'd like to become an elementary school teacher as well as an active member of a church," Anderson says. "I would like to counsel camp as long as I can because I love telling kids about God's everlasting love and seeing Him work in the lives of these young people. I would also love to move to a third-world country for a time and teach elementary-age kids."

A natural leader, Josh sets an example with his actions rather than being an outspoken voice in the locker room. His relentless effort and strong back-checking make him a reliable two way player and show why he was able to make the jump from AA midget to high level collegiate hockey. Anderson plays with this same determination in every game, regardless of the score. 

He has found his time at Briercrest very rewarding, and shares some of what has made his time with the team so special.

"I can trust every single one of these guys to have my back and be there when I need someone to talk to or pray with. We are a very tight knit group, and the reason we are so tightly knit is because we all have a common goal, which is to grow in our faith and do our best in every aspect of life, not just hockey."

Briercrest is proud to have Josh as a student-athlete and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.
