Perpetual's Prince Eze and 11 other FSAs had nothing but kind words for frontliners
A dozen foreign student-athletes (FSAs) who were given the opportunity to study in the Philippines went out of their way to hail all frontliners in the continuing COVID-19 crisis.
"I want to say a big thank you to the frontliners who are trying to keep us safe," NCAA 94 MVP Prince Eze from University of Perpetual Help said in a video.
Another NCAA MVP, this time from Season 86, in San Beda University's Sudan Daniel only shared the same sentiment. "I just wanna say a big shoutout to all the frontliners. We appreciate you," he said.
The appreciation for frontliners extended outside the Grand Old League as FSAs from the UAAP, CESAFI, and UCBL also joined in.
Among them were Ateneo de Manila University's Chibueze Ikeh, Far Eastern University's Prince Orizu, National University's Issa Gaye, and University of the East's Moustapha Arafat coming from UAAP; Henry Iloka from De La Salle-Araneta, Joel Gonzallo from New Era University, and Yemeli Raoul from University of Batangas coming from UCBL; College of St. Benilde's Clement Leutcheu and Lyceum of the Philippines University's Mike Nzeusseu coming from NCAA; and Landry Sanjo of Southwestern University coming from CESAFI.
In all, they just wanted to make it known to frontliners that they are not alone in this fight and that we are all "One Team against Coronavirus." As Nzeusseu put it, "Thank you for the frontliners. We thank you for your kind heart and we are behind you."
