The UAAP Men’s Basketball season has always been a highlight of our college years. It may be the blood-pumping hardcourt action or the unmatched feeling of camaraderie and school pride, but it could definitely be the athletes themselves too. So if you’ve stopped tuning in to this yearly ritual, well…these lads might make you think twice.
This Blue Eagle power forward has the height to make any girl feel safe with him, and the smile to make them swoon instantaneously as well.
This photo shows my year in a nutshell. Behind the smile were a lot of blood, sweat, tears and sacrifices that I had to go through to reach my goals. Thank you to everyone who made this year special for me, especially recovering from an ACL injury. Through such a tough journey, all of these wouldn't have been possible apart from the grace and love of God. Thank you Lord for everything that has happened to me this year. Whether in good times or in bad, You assured me that You are always with me. I entrust to You everything in the coming year and may Your name ultimately be glorified! Happy New Year everyone! 💥
