Four former UE Red Warriors drafted in the 2010 PBA Rookie Draft

After a week long screening process, four of the six former UE Red Warriors hopefuls to play in the professional league were drafted in the annual Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Rookie Draft held at the Market! Market! in Taguig City.

The 4th pick was obtained by Alaska when they traded their veteran Larry Fonacier to Talk N Text and Alaska selected the athletic Elmer Espiritu as their only pick in the 1st round. Pari Llagas went to B-MEG as the 9th overall pick while Alaska also traded its last pick in the 1st to Meralco to acquire also former Warrior Bon-bon Custodio, if ever Elmer and Bonbon will join their former UE teammate Mark Borboran under Coach Tim Cone. In the 2nd round, Rob Labagala was selected by Brgy. Ginebra to join former Red Warriors Ronald Tubid and Assistant Coach Allan Caidic. The last that was drafted from former Red Warriors is the clutch shooter Val Acuña as the lucky 13th overall pick by B-Meg Derby Ace, he will join a great cast of former UE Red Warriors in the line-up like the current PBA MVP James Yap, four-time PBA Slamdunk Champion KG Canaleta, Paul Artadi, and former UE teammate Pari Llagas.

Note: The official start of the 36th Season of the PBA will be in October 3, 2010. Many changes might happened, so let’s hope that all of our former Red Warriors (current PBA players and currently drafted) will get their contract to play in the PBA. And, for the two former Red Warriors Rudy Lingganay and Hans Thiele who haven’t drafted, let us pray that they can still able to play in the PBA as free agents.

• REFLECTING ON IT •

Keep in mind the difference between a winner's and a loser's mentality. Winners focus on winning big—not just how to win, but how to win big. Losers, however, don't focus on losing; they just focus on getting by!

• FLESHING IT OUT •

Each Warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on important acts he touches. This is not the voice of ego but of the human spirit, raising up and declaring that it has something to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter how vexing!
