Huang expected to lead Ateneo-A A +A
Saturday, February 15, 2014
HE IS still on his third year in high school, but the 16-year- old Zachary Lance Eden Ty-Huang is already showing a lot of promise.
He looks forward to achieving great things in life but as of the moment, his priority is to help Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu Magis Eagles win back-to-back Palarong Pambansa gold medals for basketball.
The 6’3” center-forward is considered a vital cog for SHS-AdC in all its future battles that include the SeaOil-NBTC National Finals in March 6-9 and the Palarong Pambansa in Laguna in May.
He was also a member of the Central Visayas squad that defeated the highly-favored NCR team in last year’s Palarong Pambansa in Dumaguete City.
As member of the Rommel Ramso coached SHS-AdC, Huang has evolved to be a force in the middle, owing to his hard-working attitude and flexibility.
“He is a very flexible and very competitive guy in his position. He is really hard-working and very coachable player that’s why I trust this kid. I believe in his potential. I hope he’ll excel more and someday reach his dream of becoming a professional player,” said Rasmo.
Ty-Huang is from Cagayan de Oro and had to move to Cebu to pursue a career in basketball.
Although he admitted that he found it tough playing against bigger and taller opponents, his determination and never-say-die attitude helped him keep up in the battle inside the paint.
“Qualifying for the Palarong Pambansa is my biggest achievement, so I’ll work hard for this and I know that everything is played physically in the center so I have to be stronger when I face them inside the court," said Huang.
