Ateneo de Manila will never ever forget the contributions of Thirdy Ravena and Nieto twins Mike and Matt.
That has just been set in stone as the jerseys of the three players have been enshrined by Ateneo Grade School.
Ravena’s no. 0, Matt’s no. 12, and Mike’s no. 7 were immortalized in the Katipunan-based school’s “Parangal sa Atleta” on Wednesday.
All three players proudly donned the blue and white as grade schoolers as they played in tournaments such as Small Basketeers Philippines (SBP).
They then went on to make Ateneo proud first as Blue Eaglets and then as Blue Eagles.
Now, all three players will serve as inspiration for the next generation of true blue student-athletes.
