MAHINDRA ace guard LA Revilla admitted that he’s making the most of the opportunity to train with 24 of the country’s top players as he faces tough odds to make the Gilas Pilipinas lineup for the 2017 Seaba Championship next month.
But he’s not complaining, even as training with two teams at the same time taking its toll on his body and his precious time with loved ones.
And despite slim chances to make the Seaba roster, Revilla considered the sacrifices all worth it especially since he’s doing his part for the national team and he’s playing alongside some of the best point guards in the PBA like Jayson Castro and Terrence Romeo.
"I don't know,” said Revilla of his chances to make the final cut. “I'm just making the most of my stint here."
"I'm just hoping for the best and expecting for the worst. But then, there's nothing really worst that's gonna happen because regardless of what’s gonna happen, I made it to the pool. And for me its' a great honor," he added after practice at the Meralco gym on Monday.
Revilla also admitted that he initially got confused in learning two separete systems, and that he’s spent less quality time with his loved ones. But the former La Salle standout pointed out that he’d make the same sacrifices just for the worthy chance to play for the country.
"At first you didn't know if you're gonna go 100 percent with one team or the other team, which is how it's supposed to be. Pero di mo maiwasan na it's gonna take a toll on your body, at the same time, yung time with friends and girlfriend," said Revilla, the boyfriend of volleyball star Denden Lazaro.
"But then it is how it is, sacrifice. Sabi nila patagal ng patagal it's gonna get harder. Of course, anything you're happy doing is worth doing," he added.
