For the past 17 years, everything in twin brothers Josh and Cole Nagy’s lives has revolved around competition.
“We’re fighting over everything — if it’s to get to the car first, drive, everything,” Cole said.
“You always want to beat him because he’s your brother.”
It’s that same fiery, driven attitude that has allowed both to achieve many successes in their athletic careers. Both have just come off an outstanding season with the SMAAAHL’s Saskatoon Blazers, where the pair both finished in the top 10 in league scoring.
However, for the first time in their lives, the two will be separated this fall as Josh leaves his hockey career behind to pursue his next athletic venture, golf, at Robert Morris University.
“Sometimes I wish I could still skate again. But then I just head out to the golf course instead of going to the rink and I enjoy that quite a bit.”

Their time together in the coming years will be limited with Josh at school in Pennsylvania while Cole continues his journey in hockey with the WHL’s Prince Albert Raiders.
It makes the moments that they’ve had to spend together this summer even more special — even when, instead of competing against one another, they act as a team with Cole caddying for Josh.
“I know what triggers him positively and, obviously, negatively,” Cole said with a smirk. “But I just try to help him out the best I can.”
This fall marks the biggest step in their athletic careers — one that will bring monumental changes to both of their lives.
“There will be a lot less arguing, probably. I don’t know, it should be good,” Cole said.
