The First Tribe of Red and White

It has been more than 58 years already since the University of the East Red Warriors first played inside the court, to wage war against the best and the brightest schools in the UAAP. Many have been chosen to wear the famous red and white jersey of Lualhati. Many of them are best remembered and many of them are long forgotten with time.

But, do we remember the first batch of Warriors to fight for UE’s pride and honor? If you’ll ask me, who are the oldest Red Warriors I can recall? I will immediately say that is the father of the Pumaren Brothers, no less than the famous Red Warrior who gave the very 1st UAAP championship for UE – Filo Pumaren, together with other legends Constancio Ortiz and Roberto Flores.

How about the first elite 16 Warriors? After the acceptance of the University of the East in the UAAP. The PE Department began a series of try-outs and after the selection process. The official roster was finalized and they were:

Team Roster of 1952

Edgardo Aquilla

Rafael Barreto

Gregorio Crisol

Edgardo Cruz

Armado Cudra

Benjamin Dabu

Domingo Dizon

Benjamin Doronilla

Lucerio Fajardo

Remigio Gutierrez

Alfredo Javelosa

Amado Recio

Manuel Santiago

Arsenio Ubiadas

Benjamin Wenceslao

Eduardo Wilson

Armado Cudra was hailed as the very first Chief Warrior, while teammate Rafael Barreto was his Vice-Captian. The Red Warriors of 1952 were mentored under Coach Gabby Fajardo. This line-up has not been that successful in there UAAP haunt for a championship title and obviously has been overshadowed five years later by the squad of legends like Pumaren, Ortiz, and Flores under the mentorship of another legend in the Philippine Basketball, Coach Virgilio "Baby" Dalupan. But what makes this tribe of Warriors very special is that they were the first to officially wears the red and white jersey and intially starts the flame of pride to our quest for glory.

• 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!
