We can’t say that she’ll remain with F2 Logistics because a lot of teams are talking to her na din -- sports agent Charlie Dy on Mika Reyes
Virtual Playground chief Charlie Dy confirmed that while their talent volleybelle Mika Reyes is on break from volleyball, they are looking to explore other opportunities for her outside of the sport and are even entertaining offers from other teams that will allow her “to maximize her talent”.
The former De La Salle star might part ways with long-time coach Ramil De Jesus and F2 Logistics in the next Philippine Superliga season.
“We can’t say that she’ll remain with F2 Logistics because a lot of teams are talking to her na din,” said Dy.
“We want to put her in a place where she can maximize her talents and reach her potential,” added the sports agent, who revealed that a certain club is very much interested to get the services of the three-time UAAP champion not only to boost their campaign in the league but also to help in their product marketing.
“At this point we’re very open to anything,” the Virtual Playground boss continued. “What team? We’ll just surprise you.”
“What’s definite is that she’ll remain playing for as long as she can,” said Dy. “It just so happens that she wants to try other things.”
The 5-foot-11 middle who led the Lady Spikers to the UAAP Season 78 title announced that she’ll take a break from volleyball and is interested to try other opportunities including entering showbiz or a modeling stint.
Reyes said that she wanted to take a rest from the sport after a successful year where she also won a title with F2 Logistics in the PSL All-Filipino, a third place finish in the Grand Prix and a stint in the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship.
Reyes will have at least six months of rest until the PSL All-Filipino Conference opens June next year.
“She will definitely play. Volleyball is her passion. It’s her first love. In fact, we will base her schedule on the PSL calendar,” Dy explained. “She will still be available to play from start to finish and would still accept international commitment.”
“It’s just that she wants to go full blast with her showbiz and modeling career and hosting as well,” Dy added. “So far we’re weighing down our options.”
Reyes could follow the footsteps of another Virtual Playground talent, College of St. Benilde hitter John Vic De Guzman who will star in his debut film and Metro Manila Film Festival entry ‘Seklusyon’ which will be shown on theatres starting Christmas Day.
