Athletes remember iconic barker Rolly Manlapaz

Thank you, Rolly!
The UAAP and the NCAA will never be the same.
For years, Rolly Manlapaz and his iconic calls were as much as part of the UAAP and NCAA games as was the action.
Sadly, Manlapaz passed away Thursday morning after succumbing to ALS. He was 58-years old.
As much as the fans will remember his commanding voice and one-of-a-kind delivery, so will the athletes, who day in and day out, had the pleasure of having the stadium legend call out their names during introductions, substitutions, and of course, conversions.
“Alyssa Valdez” will never sound the same. Maraming salamat, sir Rolly. 🙏🏻 https://t.co/bznel3UEny— Alyssa Valdez (@AlyssaValdez2) September 27, 2018

Will miss the random birthday greetings in the middle of possessions or deadballs.. not exactly textbook 'barker-ing' but that was Rolly. May you have a grand time calling those basketball games up there. 🙏 https://t.co/vJscRADYQ4— Marco Benitez (@_marcobenitez) September 27, 2018
