Göran Högosta slog igenom i Borlängeklubben IF Tunabro redan som 15-åring i division 2. Som 23-åring fick han sitt stora internationella genombrott då han agerade "levande vägg" i VM 1977 som spelades i Wien. Tre Kronor vann silver efter bl a slagit Sovjet med 5-1 och 3-1 i två mycket omtalade matcher där Göran kom att bli lagets viktigaste spelare. Gjorde ett relativt misslyckat proffsförsök under några säsonger men återvände till Sverige och spel med Västra Frölunda.
Deltog i den första upplagan av Canada Cup som spelades 1976.
Bor i dag i Falun.
