Sangha didn't have to look too far for inspiration to pick up a field hockey stick. His mother planted the seed to play and his coach Buta Johal provided the platform in which his passion grew and took flight. Sangha started sporting the red, white and blue in 2012 when he was selected for the U.S. Junior National Team. He has since sprouted into the senior level where he stood out during a polished summer series on the USMNT's home turf against Argentina, Chile and Mexico.
