DLSU setter Michelle Cobb to take on new role one game at a time
Setter Michelle Cobb is setting lofty expectations for herself in Season 80.
Second-year player Michelle Cobb knows that big expectations will be set on her as she is set to become the DLSU Lady Spikers' starting setter, replacing the big void left by Kim Fajardo.
The St. Scholastica College Manila product knows how hard it is to replace a collegiate legend in Fajardo, and is ready to take the challenge one game at a time.
In one year playing with Fajardo, Cobb admitted that there was not much time to bond with her, but the 18-year old has learned and will try to emulate an admirable characteristic from the decorated setter this season.
"The biggest lesson that I got from her was yung "puso" ni ate Kim. Sobrang buo ng puso niya. Very solid niya sa court, yun ang gusto ko i-carry this coming season."
As the triumvirate of Dawn Macandili, Majoy Baron, and Kianna Dy is set to play their final season donning the green uniforms, Cobb hopes that their farewell tour will be as successful as it had been the previous two years, just by being themselves.
For herself, the 5'4” Cobb is setting lofty expectations in Season 80.
"I expect myself to be more mature, comparing to the other years, knowing myself better more throughout the three to four months," Cobb said.
With maturity in mind, Cobb admits that it cannot be built and developed by simply preparing, but comes out suddenly and viciously.
"Yung maturity, it comes with every situation sa game. Yung maturity, nabubuild mo lang siya thorugh those situations sa games. So I feel throughout the three months, may composure ako, I get to build my composure. I need to becomee come more mature."
