^^ the younger brother of Kiefer is invited too, Thirdy Ravena. can somebody describe how he plays now?? has he improved a lot? thanks
..Impossible is nothing, Just Do It!..
..you're bringing the name in front of your jersey, not the one at the back..
I see a lot of familiar surnames like Black, Ravena, Paras, Ildefonso, Bayaborda, Ejercito, Limpot and many others. Some of these kids are either sons or relatives of past and present basketball figures.
Hopefully a lot of kids will attend the open try-outs and provide some surprises to these already listed players. The kids already on the list have the tough task of showing that they can offer more other than their famous surnames.
still, all the names come from elite schools in Manila...
SMART GILAS: all the way
start em young....
"I have to tell you now, you take your final vow! Don't wait for me to lay my hands on you!"
-MAY THE STALLIONFORCE BE WITH YOU
i hope they go if possible, in almost all barangays.. some kids cannot afford to go at the venue..
Bayaborda who?Originally Posted by Servinio
