Jervy Cruz to Aspiring Basketball Players: Follow Your Dreams and Take Advantage of the UA 3x3


11 April 2017 - Manila, Philippines: PBA Player Jervy Cruz has a lot to share about his basketball journey, “Sobrang blessed ako kasi narating ko ang narating ko.  Kasi sobra-sobrang hirap ang dinaanan ko.  Galing akong probinsya pero pangarap ko lang talaga maging isang PBA player”, says Jervy.

He continues by saying that even when he was in high school, he was dead-set on his dreams, though, it didn’t seem possible to attain his ambition, he held on to it, “Nung high school ako, ang laro namin di naman seryoso.  Nung nag-college ako, 4 a.m. pa lang gising na ako, tapos Team B ako ng 4 years.  So feeling ko, bakit ganoon.”

He said that despite the obstacles that came his way, he never doubted himself.  He just kept his unwavering faith and kept the dream alive.  “Ang sabi ko sa sarili ko pag susuko na ako,…konti na lang…kaya ko pa, kaya ko pa ito.”

Having accomplished a dream that most young basketball players aspire for, Jervy has made it his advocacy to inspire more young players to hold on to that dream.  He has become the voice for Under Armour’s latest program,  FIBA 3x3 U18 Asia Cup presented by Under Armour.
