In line with their 10th consecutive championship in the UAAP Season 82 High School Boys Football Tournament, two members of Far Eastern University-Diliman earned themselves three individual gongs for stellar displays during the season.
Pocholo Bugas and Jacob Garciano added the cherries on top of another glorious chapter in FEU’s program as the former was named the Most Valuable Player while the latter bagged the Best Striker and Best Midfielder gongs.
Bugas, a member of the Philippine Men’s Under-23 National Football Team that competed in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, alternated between defense and midfield throughout the season.
The came can be said for Garciano as he played in both the middle of the pitch and the final third and got six goals in the process, two of which came in the finals against Nazareth School of National University.
Alimar Ambong, a stalwart in the backline for the Bullpups, was given the Best Defender Award for his valiant displays for NS-NU this season.
A trio from De La Salle-Zobel completed the individual awardees with Enrico Mangaoang being hailed as Best Goalkeeper while Rafael Aldeguer was crowned as Rookie of the Year.
Lastly, Ateneo High School was awarded the Fair Play Award.
