HCHS Cager Kris Harvey Pagsanjan as he Plays for the Flag and Country in FIBA Asia 3x3

The Philippines is a country known for world-class sports figures like boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, kegler Paeng Nepomuceno, runner Lydia De Vega, the magician Efren “Bata” Reyes, and Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire. These athletes are products of hard work and training that they developed when they were still young. Such is the case of this upcoming basketball star from Hope Christian High School who is set to partake in another international basketball event.

One of the junior basketball players in the Fiba Asia Under18 3-on-3 tournament in Malaysia mentored by coach Anton Altamirano talks about his career and his ambitions beyond basketball.
Kris Harvey D. Pagsanjan was born on January 2, 1999 to Florencia Pagsanjan and Reynaldo Pagsanjan in Caalibangbangan, Cabanatuan City. This 5-foot-11 point guard and wingman of Hope Christian High School is taking his time to reach his goals in life. 

Let’s take a glimpse of this future basketball superstar in this interview:

Paolo: What are the preparations that you and your team are doing for the international competition?

Harvey: We are having our practice thrice a week, nakikipag tune up kami sa mga team B players ng Arellano University pero nung last training namin, we tuned up against Kobe Paras,  Kiefer Ravena and Jeron Teng. Sila kasi yung sa lalaban sa World 3x3. So malaking tulong yun samin kasi pag dating dun sa FIBA Asia malalaki din kalaban so may experience na kami.

Paolo: How do you balance your studies and basketball?

Harvey: Every day we have trainings and classes but for student athletes like us, it’s important for us to study and that is also being told to us by our coaches. We have 7:30am to 4:00 pm classes and training starts from 5:00-8:00 pm.

Paolo: What is your career high in points?

Harvey: 38 points in PCABL against NU.

Paolo: Who are your basketball idols?

Harvey: In the NBA, I like Kobe Bryant of the L.A. Lakers, UAAP is Kiefer Ravena of ADMU, Harold Arboleda of NCAA, and Gabe Norwood of the PBA.

Paolo: In the PCABL, who do you think is the hardest to guard?

Harvey: JV Gallego is the hardest to guard.

Paolo: What can you say about the school’s athletic program?

Harvey: We are all being disciplined because there are a lot of young rookies but we all know that we need to double our efforts in order for us to win our games.

Paolo: Who taught you to play basketball?

Harvey: I learned it on my own. In our family in the province, we don’t have someone who plays the sport. When I was a kid, I already loved basketball. That’s why when I went to Manila, they supported me.

Paolo: What is your ambition in life?

Harvey: My ambition is to play in the professional league someday and to help my parents and also other kids who love the sports.
