UST coach Kungfu Reyes finds deeper purpose through coaching

Teaching runs in the blood of Kungfu Reyes. Born to a family of teachers, Reyes found a similar calling but in a different classroom. In an episode of The Score’s Kalye Confessions, the University of Sto. Tomas women’s volleyball team head coach shared how he gets a sense of fulfilment as mentor and teacher to his players. A former UST player himself, Reyes found a deeper purpose through coaching. “Passion na ‘yun eh bukod sa pagiging military,” said the Army staff sergeant. “Kapag may extra time kami, may mga bata na pupunta ka sa school maglalaro tapos dun na kami magtuturo hanggang pumasok na katawan namin ‘yung dedication na talagang tyagain ang pagtuturo sa mga bata.” “Kasi those things pwede ka magbago ng buhay through sports,” added Reyes, a physical education graduate. In his 15-year coaching career, Reyes rose from a deputy role to becoming a fulltime coach of UST girls’ team to calling the shots for the Tigresses. He helped the likes of Alyssa Valdez, Kim Fajardo, EJ and Eya Laure and Sisi Rondina grow into the stars they are today.       “’Yung teaching kasi ano na lang nasa katawan kasi ang tinapos ko rin, yung vocation ko, in line naman ako sa pagtuturo, di ko naman naalis sa katawan ‘yun,” said Reyes. Reyes’ interest in teaching or coaching in his case, is an influence he got from his family.       “Siguro nasa dugo na kasi sa pamilya namin meron kaming… yung Tito ko teacher din, yung kuya ko teacher rin, yung younger sister ko nagtuturo rin,” he said. Just like all dedicated teachers, a coach’s life also goes beyond the confines of a classroom or a gym. “’Di natatapos yung trabaho paglabas namin ng school. Minsan mayroong mga late calls, may kailangang asikasuhin, may problema ang bata,” Reyes said. “Sometimes personal problem, family problems tumutulong kami doon sa mga ganoong bagay,” he continued. For Reyes, coaches play the role of mentor, father and friend to their players.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

SEA Games 2019: Eumir Marcial s win was for teammate John Marvin, and for all Filipinos

Filipin-British boxer John Marvin found himself on the losing end of a Split Decision result against Vietnam's Hoang Truong Dinh in the second day of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games Boxing competitions, Thursday at the PICC Forum Tent in Manila.  Marvin, the Philippines' light heavyweight, was dropped in the opening round by a well-timed counter overhand-right, and was playing catch up to the Vietnamese pug from that point. While Marvin did a lot better in the second and third rounds, it wasn't enought to sway the judges' decision as he bowed out of the tournament, unable to defend his gold medal from the 2017 SEA Games.  While it was definitely a heartbreaking loss for Marvin, he was still all smiles as he greeted fans on his way out of the competition area.  Someone who wasn't able to contain his emotions however, was Marvin's teammate and Pinoy middleweight bet Eumir Marcial.  Marcial could not hold his tears back as he came to console his fallen teammate after the loss.  The following day, it was Marcial's turn to take to the ring, and he didn't disappoint, making short work of Malaysian Azmi Mohd Aswan Che. Marcial needed just one round to defeat Che and move on to the finals of the Men's Middleweight division.  Following his spectacular win, the AIBA World Championships silver medalist explained just why he was extremely emotional following Marvin's loss.  "Sobrang close kami, lahat ng pag-hihirap namin, magkasama kami, yung training namin, talagang binigay namin yung blood, yung disiplina namin, yung hard work namin dito, para dito sa SEA Games," Marcial told the media.  "Nasaktan ako, nalungkot ako sa nangyari sa kanya, especially nung nalaman ko na kaya pala siya hindi maka-suntok kasi sobrang maga nung kamay niya. Nung first round pa lang, maga na yung kamay niya. Sabi ko kahit na na-knockdown siya, maka-bawi naman siya eh, kasi nung training andun yung, talagang gusto niyang makuha yung gold, kaya sabi ko bawi na lang sa second round pero nakita namin, lahat nating mga Pilipino na hindi siya maka-suntok ulit, so sa lahat, may injury siya, maga yung kamay niya," he continued.  With his fallen teammate in mind, Marcial came into his bout and delivered, dedicating the win to Marvin, the rest of his team, and the rest of the Filipino people.  "Sabi ko, itong game na 'to, kasi hindi siya nakakuha ng medal, so, hindi lang 'to para sa akin, hindi lang 'to para sa Pilipino, para sa amin din ito, kasi hard work namin, yung pagsasma namin, lahat. Kumbaga alam namin yung isa't-isa, kaya naging emotional ako nung natalo siya." With Marcial one more win away from a third-straight gold medal in the SEA Games, the Zamboanga-native calls for support from the Filipino people. "Hinihingi namin lahat, ng Philippine Boxing Team na suportahan niyo kami, manood kayo sa laban namin, i-cheer niyo kami, kasi we win as one naman eh. Yung panalo namin ay panalo din niyo.".....»»
