THE Central Visayas elementary football squad is all geared up and ready to go to the Palarong Pambansa on April 10 to 16 in Legazpi City.
“I trust our players. They will fight. The only thing that I’m afraid of for the team are injuries. I hope and pray to God that there will be no injuries up until the end of the Palaro,” head coach Jun Santillan told Sun.Star Cebu.
The Central Visayas team has a core of players from Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu bolstered by players from Don Bosco Technology Center (DBTC), Canduman Elementary School, Subangdaku Elementary School, University of San Carlos (USC), Colegio de la Inmaculada (CIC) - Mandaue and Bohol Garcia Elementary School.
The Central Visayas elementary squad is composed of SHS-AdC players Christian Joseph Lumapas, John Andrew Mandawe, Richard Angelo Osmeña, John Rufin, James Benedict Rufin, Matthew Sebastien Suico and Tyrell Skye Romero; DBTC’s Kamil Jaser Amirul and Uriel Villacarlos; Canduman Elementary School’s Karl Kent Bascon and Christian Paul Carizon; CIC-Mandaue’s Zachary Miles Frias; Subangdaku Elementary School’s Vince Ozanam Lamparas; USC’s Marcus Frederic Rayco; and Bohol Garcia Elementary School’s Procopio Macalos III.
“The team is ready and excited. Practice has been consistent,” said SHS-AdC athletic director Rico Navarro or the team’s progress.
Some of the teams that pose a huge threat to Central Visayas’ title hopes are West Visayas and NCR, which has a core of players from Ateneo de Manila.
