Among the teams Joshua has played for include Niagara Spears of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) and AN Myer Marauders of the Niagara Region High School Athletic Association (NRHSAA).

The highlight of last season is when the Marauders battled rivals during the postseason

“Playing a hard game against Notre Dame in the semi finals and coming out on top,” added the Marauders standout.

Joshua looks to a few people for encouragement.

“My family,” says the defensive end.  “They support me in everything I do and always have good advice for me when I’m in a tough situation.”

“My Niagara Spears defensive coordinator Steve Checcini (former McMaster defensive end) and the AN Myer senior coach Dave Buchanan are also influences.  They always have good advice and have taught me a lot over the years and always motivate me to do better.”

Joshua knows he’s has plenty of time to make a decision on his gridiron future.  Hhe plans on making use of that time.

“I am considering any CIS school right now,” says Joshua on his approach to recruitment, “I am young so i have lots of time before I really narrow down on schools that I want to go to.”

“My plan is to be respectful and honest about everything with university and to make sure they have a good education for me, and to be patient, also to make sure that their facilities are right for me, and make me feel confident about football and excelling.”

Between now and his prospective CIS career Joshua plans on working hard.

“I am going to keep working hard,” Josh says, “I want to be able to go to sleep knowing I did something to make myself a better person and a better player.”

“My training usually looks like four to five days in the gym, then working out with coaches on form and weightlifting, usually do cardio and footwork with that to.”

During the coming weeks, Joshua has one gridiron goal in mind.

“This season I am working towards getting the sack record in the OVFL (15.5),” says the Marauders standout.
