What is sure is that to him and to his dad, it would be an honor to someday play for the Philippine team.
This must be an error, Ray Parks is 100% in high school, he is a Sophomore, so he is an underclassmen. He is playing against Juniors and Seniors who could be up to 2-3 years older.Originally Posted by BLUE HORSE

if he indeed will be included in our 09 sea games, it will also help his skills to develop, since he will be up against older players.Originally Posted by The_Big_Cat
Wang Zhi Zhi played for the Chinese Youth team in 1994 here in Manila along with Li Nan. After that stint, Wang was elevated to their seniors team. Wang was the youngest then as a teenager. Wang was also a part of the 1996 Chinese Olympic team as a back-up.Originally Posted by ricodgame
That is the principle the SBP is putting up on Parks which is similar to Wang and Yao. Start them young. And I think Ray Parks is playing way beyond is age.
FOUR-ward for the Big Red Machine
