John Kenneth ‘Mr. Big Shots’ Zamora: One of the best to ever wear AU jersey


When he side steps from way beyond the arc and hit that lethal dagger three, the AU crowd
goes wild. The pandemonium doesn’t end there, because the throng of gals who wanted to take
a photo op with him piles up in the athlete’s entrance. Indeed, he is more than just his boy-next-door image in campus; he is also an ace player, playmaker, and shooter of the Arellano University Braves.

Born John Kenneth Miranda Zamora to Mike  Zamora and Thet Zamora on December 6, 1997, the 5’7 cager from Arellano University  Legarda is the title holder for this year’s search for Mr.    Arellano University 2014 High School Division.  He bested other high school students of his age in the inter-campus pageant.

With his boy-next-door looks and perseverance in the hard court and at school, John Kenneth Miranda Zamora is on the verge of achieving his goals in the near future.

At 16 years old, he currently plays as a point guard for the Arellano University Braves in the Juniors Division of the NCAA basketball. In their last four games of NCAA season 90, he averages 10.5 points per game including four triples in their game against San Beda Red Cubs. After the NCAA 90th season, he is the no. 1 junior athlete with the most number of three points made in the league with 68. After his first six games in this year’s NCAA, he averages 13.16 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2 assists per game.

The shot that he likes the most is set shot. He is more comfortable with this shot because he knows if his shot will go thru or not. In the UAAP, he likes RR Garcia when he was still with the FEU Tamaraws. In the PBA, he idolizes Peter Jun ‘The Scoring Apostle’ Simon because he has high basketball IQ.

In the NBA, he likes the Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors. He looks up to 4-time league MVP Lebron James because he is an all-around player and he can defend players who are taller and bigger than him. Asked about his goal for this year and the preparations he is doing at the moment, Kenneth said, “For our team to go to the Final four and everything will be a step by step procedure once we get there. I think I need more practice so that I can improve my game and hopefully contend in the championship”.


Being in the roster of the National Collegiate Athletic Association or NCAA Men’s team to
play for your respective school is a privilege in itself, but helping them to make your team at the
top of their game is also another achievement. And it is never an easy task for any high school student just like John Kenneth Zamora. “I will do my best for me to win in every competition I’m in. Thank you for those who supported me in my endeavors”, quipped the chinito cager from Legarda.
