Kapamilya star Awra Briguela could be looking at a new act.
The young artist and an avid volleyball fan has been invited by F2 Logistics and his favorite UAAP team De La Salle University to train with them this week.
Awra, who is currently part of the top-rating ABS-CBN teleserye Ang Probinsyano, was ecstatic after getting an invitation from no less than the team’s coaching staff and Aby Marano.
“Sobrang saya kasi makaka-training ko rin sila, kasi sabi po nina coach mag-training daw ako sa La Salle,” he said Tuesday night after watching F2 Logistics’ four-set win against Cignal in the 2019 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre. “This week din po sabi ni Tyang, ‘yun daw po sabi ng coach nila. Super [dream come true] tapos makaka-training ko pa sila kaya super ibang [level na].”
Awra got a chance to visit the Cargo Movers dugout after the game and turned into a normal fan in the presence of his idols Ara Galang, libero Dawn Macandili and Marano.
“Actually fan na talaga ko ng La Salle before pa, [time pa] nina Tyang Aby, ni Ara Galang and also Macandili that’s why love ko rin ‘yung F2 kasi karamihan sa kanila taga-La Salle,” said the 14-year old, Grade 9 student.
The experience, according to him, was surreal.
“Ang saya, sobrang saya. Kasi first time ko silang ma-meet,” said Awra
The young talent said that he himself play volleyball competitively as part of AMA University varsity team.
“Varsity rin po ako sa school namin kaya fan talaga ano ng volleyball,” he opened. “Nago-opener ako pero mas [inaaral] ko ngayon ‘yung [pagiging] libero para may depensa rin ako.”
Asked about his game, Awra was quick to answer that he plays like a combination of two of his idols.
“Ara Galang na sinapian ni Macandili ganoon!” the actor’s humble brag. “Kasi si Ate Ara na ma-depensa rin siya, sobrang galing niya rin eh. So pinagsamang Ara Galang na Macandili kasi idol ko talaga sila eh.”
For his demeanor inside the court, Awra is the ‘beast mode, don’t care’ of their team.
“Kay Tyang ako kasi sobrang beast mode niya, malala. Kasi ganoon talaga ang swag dapat hindi papantayan ng iba,” he said.
