Longtime coach Adonis Tierra said the team also has players who are Catholic, despite the school being run by the INC. Tierra also has a Muslim for a big man in Adzhar Ujan.
“Tatlo nga iyan, pero tapos na yung dalawa,” he said of his Muslim players.
“Hindi naman requirements na dapat Iglesia ni Cristo ka. Basta kung sino ang puwede,” added Tierra, a veteran coach who serves as one of Yeng Guiao’s deputies at NLEX. “Meron ngang ganun na nagtatanong agad, pero welcome naman lahat sa team.”
As the new school year is about to begin, Tierra is again trying to form a new roster for the Hunters as they gear up for the coming season of the National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) and the National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (NAASCU).
Tryouts are ongoing at the school gym along Central Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City every Tuesday and Friday from 12:00 noon to 3 p.m.
The tryouts are open to all players aged 23 years-and-under, including transferees and freshmen.
Tierra said scholarships and benefits await those who will be selected for the team. Aspirants are required to bring personal IDs, and should be in their jogging or long pants upon entering the campus.
