Three of Far Eastern University's young Tamaraws are stuck in its athletes' dormitory.

RJ Abarrientos, Royce Alforque, and Cholo Anonuevo have been staying safe in Diliman as they weren't able to go home during the continuing community quarantine.

"Siyempre, mahal kasi yung rush plane tickets so nag-decide kami mag-stay rito dahil nandito naman sa loob yung gusto naming gawin like court tsaka weights," Abarrientos said.

Abarrientos, FEU's incoming first-year scoring guard, resides in Manila while second-year playmaker Alforque and just-graduated Baby Tam Anonuevo hail from Cebu and Ireland, respectively.

Fortunately for them, they have each other to keep each other company through the continuing COVID-19 crisis. "Malaking bagay na magkakasama kami kasi siyempre, iniisip namin yung family naming malayo sa amin. 'Di biro ang COVID-19 kaya sa mga ball is life, stay at home lang and pray," Abarrientos shared.

He then continued, "At least, may time din kaming mag-extra work dito."

Indeed, the young Tamaraws made a way to keep at their craft - even right inside their room.

"Biglaan ko lang ding naisip yung gumawa ng ring sa room. Basta maging (ring), pwede na," Abarrientos said. "Nung bata kasi ako, yung bahay namin puro butas dahil sa paglalagay ko ng (ring) kung saan-saan."
