"It's just a matter of trying to give my all and put the team in a situation to win and succeed. That's my main goal, to make the country proud," --- Stanley Pringle.
You can just tell that a guy like Stanley Pringle is raring to represent the Philippines in international competition.
Now, the guy former Gilas head coach and current Ateneo mentor Tab Baldwin calls as the "best guard in Asia," will finally have the chance to ball out.
Pringle already repped Gilas earlier this year, but he only got the chance to play in halfcourt for the 3x3 team in the FIBA 3x3 World Cup.
Now, the whole floor is all his for the 2018 Asian Games and he's looking forward to making the country proud.
"I'm feeling great. It will always be an honor," Pringle said of making the national team.
"It's just a matter of trying to give my all and put the team in a situation to win and succeed. That's my main goal, to make the country proud," he added.
For a pretty straightforward player like Pringle, it should be no problem for him to handle the task at hand.
It should also be no problem for him to find motivation amid the craziness that has surrounded this particular national team. Putting his Gilas jersey on is enough of a motivation and he's more than ready for the challenge in Indonesia.
"When the call of duty comes, you know you gotta give it your all. 100 percent and put the team in a position to win," Pringle said.
"Definitely looking forward to the competition and playing with my teammates here in Rain or Shine and just the whole Philippine team," he added.
