Batang Pound player Byron “The Heartthrob Cager” Alano sets sights to next level of game


From being a former Junior Altas player to testing the cudgels of Batang Pound team in his latest tournament this year, Byron Alano has become a matured playmaker for his new team. He is now planning to return to major leagues and with the help of Pound for Pound fitness gym which is also patronized by former Altas player and now PBA star Scottie Thompson. Pound for Pound Fitness is owned by Keith Picazo. Byron is now on the verge of making a comeback in the hard court. Let us take a peek at this interview with the handsome cager.

Born Byron Alano on April 19, 1997 in Manila, the 5-foot-11 point guard/shooting guard plays for  Batang Pound team. He also became the best player of the game in their Next 5 Hoops tournament with 16 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. “I started playing basketball when I was seven years old. I joined a basketball league at that time in our place in Camella Homes, Las Pinas City”, quipped Byron.

The one who taught him to play the game was his brother. When he started to play in Camella Homes, there was a group of ballers named GOLTEBS, they were the prominent team in their place and they guided Byron to improve his skills in basketball. “I only played one year for UPHSD Juniors. But that one year was the best for me. It was memorable because my teammates are very kind and helpful to me, and also the people at Perpetual. I will never forget my team especially the super seven that I was with when we became champions during that year. The Junior Altas team is the best for me”, added Byron.  

His number one goal would be to become a professional basketball player in the PBA. But he knows that before he gets that goal, he has to work hard for that. “For me, the greatest basketball player of all time would be LeBron James because every season, he continues to prove to everyone that he is the greatest NBA player of all time” said Byron.
