Ish Polvorosa has had a storied career as the main playmaker for the Ateneo men's volleyball team in the UAAP, and it appears that he's branching out to try his hand at politics.
The graduating setter for the Blue Eagles took to social media to announce his candidacy in the upcoming Barangay Elections on May 14, for the Sanguniang Kabataan (SK) chairman seat of Brgy. Anabu 2-B in his hometown of Imus, Cavite.
Even at a very young age, our setter faced the pressure and hardwork and became THE leader inside the court. I’m sure he can empower the youth to do the same by setting (😉) them to the right track! #IshOurTime #IshYourTime pic.twitter.com/W8yD6RKD3X— Rex Intal (@rexintal) May 7, 2018
The decorated setter and three-peat champion for the Katipunan-based squad has been aggressive in promoting his campaign, even holding a 'Grand Fans Day' alongside his fellow Ateneo athletes, even his head coach, Oliver Almadro.

Ish will join a long list of athletes-turned-politicians who aim to prove their mettle as public servants.
