Every dad deserves credit, especially on their special day.

From the clingy dads, masungit yet protective tatays, to the stern yet sweet, and every kind of dad in between, Father's Day is when we appreciate you the most.

But let's shine a light on sports dads who've been nothing but pillars of guidance for their family and children.

 

Eddie Laure

'The Dominator' was a force to be reckoned with back in his days in the MBA and the PBA, but Eddie Laure is a role model dad to a loving family of athletes, most notably, EJ and Eya Laure of the UST Golden Tigresses.

Eddie's resume as a heroic dad contains a lot of things, but the most well-known are two instances he came to the resuce for her two volleybelle daughters after devastating injuries. 

 

Bong Ravena

Bong Ravena is the patriarch of the famed Filipino sports family of accomplished athletes, from Kiefer to Thirdy, and Dani. Along with Mozzy Ravena, they've established a strong bond as a family that has stayed strong through victory and defeat.

 

Ervin Sotto

Being the father of a prodigious talent like Kai Sotto is no easy task. But Ervin has helped his 7'2" son move closer and closer into fulfilling his NBA dream.

 

Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao is many things. A legendary boxer, a politician, an advocate of Philippine basketball, and a loving father above all.

 

Doug Kramer

When it comes to building the closest thing to a perfect family, look nowhere else but the Kramer household. Doug's dependability on the court plaes in comparison to the way he has provided and care for his family.
