Archer cager Phillip “Chinito Heartthrob” Yaco takes game to greater heights

From being an EAC Generals last year to testing the cudgels of DLSU Dasma this year, Phillip Given has become a matured playmaker for his new team and campus. Being in the roster 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 student just like Phillip.

Born Phillip Given Yaco on February 8, 1997 in Davao City to Felipe Yaco and Grace Yaco, the 6-foot Phillip Given is currently playing for De LaSalle Dasmarinas, Cavite. He previously played for the UPHSD Junior Altas and Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals in Cavite.

Asked about his best asset in the court, Phillip quipped, “I think it would be my defense and drive. On the other hand, I think I have to improve my offense and my confidence inside the court”. His pre-game rituals include eating a lot, praying and the determination to win in every game he is in. His career high in point is 16 in a tournament held in Davao City. He is included in the mythical five in their provincial basketball league.
In the NBA, he likes the 16-time world champions Los Angeles Lakers, and he idolizes Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers and one of NBA’s all-time greats, Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls.

“It’s good because we help each other inside the court and as a team mate, there is chemistry already between us as siblings”, said Phillip of the advantage of having a brother as a team mate. He likes to be a PBA player in the near future.
