Even after UAAP 82 exit, Padrigao has no regrets about sacrificing for Ateneo

Forthsky Padrigao was invited to the 2020 Basketball without Borders Global Camp running from February 14 to 16. The primetime playmaker sacrificed his spot in the annual gathering of the top young talent from all over the world so he could lead Ateneo de Manila High School in its do-or-die game against Adamson High School. Only, Padrigao and crew came up short on Wednesday. With the Blue Eaglets’ campaign coming to a close, his calendar has just opened up quite a bit. Still, he has no regrets about making such sacrifice. “Definitely, no regrets kasi ‘di porket ni-sacrifice ko ‘tong isang bagay, magiging successful na ako rito sa isa,” he said. He then continued, “In life, we take risks and sa risks na yun, if we succeed, then good. If we don’t, then we learn from that.” Indeed, the 5-foot-11 court general has, without a doubt, learned a lot from his first season as the blue and white’s main man. “Yung chemistry ko with (Lebron Lopez and Josh Lazaro), medyo surface level pa lang, pero siguro, throughout the summer, mas magiging maayos chemistry namin,” he said. And with that, Padrigao says he and Ateneo will be back for more for his last go-round in high school. As he put it, “Definitely, gutom na gutom kami. But let’s see what awaits us.” —— Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Ricci Rivero to star in teen flick

From his nifty moves on the hard court, Ricci Rivero side steps back to the silver screen as he is set to star in a teen flick slated this summer.    The University of the Philippines star after a good run in his first season with the Fighting Maroons is currently on the grind for the movie ‘Happy Times’ with teen stars Heaven Peralejo and Sharlene San Pedro. Rivero, a Virtual Playground talent, has been very vocal about his interest to explore the world of showbiz which his legion of fans have been patiently waiting. Despite his venture into showbiz, numerous endorsement gigs and other commitments, Rivero still manages to take care of his studies and train with the Fighting Maroons as they prepare for UAAP Season 83. His return into acting is just Rivero’s way of giving back to his supporters who stuck by him throughout his fruitful basketball and budding showbiz career.    “When you do something to make others happy and entertained it gives you that sense of fulfillment, kasi sa simpleng paraan nasusuklian ko yung pagmamahal na walang-sawa nilang binibigay sa akin. Be it on and off the court, hindi nila ako iniiwan,” said Rivero. It has been two years since his acting debut in the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival for the movie ‘Otlum’. After his first movie, Rivero had to set aside several offers from different film companies and TV networks to do teleseryes and more movies, to concentrate on his commitment with the Fighting Maroons......»»
