Josh Ranek (born May 11, 1978 in Tyndall, South Dakota) is a former Canadian football player.
Radek was a running back in the Canadian Football League for the Ottawa Renegades (2002–2005), the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (2006), the Edmonton Eskimos (preseason 2007), and the Saskatchewan Roughriders (November 2007). In 2002, he attended the training camp of the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. Radek played college football at South Dakota State University.
A term was coined by Chris Walby, color commentator for the CFL broadcasts on CBC, called "Ring around the Ranek" to describe Ranek's power running, and his being an integral part to his team. Ranek won the "CFL Player of the Week" award on August 9, 2006 for a win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
