TERRENCE Romeo is grateful to San Miguel Beer for resuscitating a career which he felt was going nowhere before.
“Binuhay nila yung career ko ulit,” said the young gunner Sunday. “Akala ko yung career ko dati talagang maaga na akong magre-retire sa mga nangyayaring ups and downs.”
Romeo appreciated the gesture of San Miguel management to re-sign him to a three-year contract extension after the team gambled and traded for him just before the start of the season following a short but tumultuous stay with TnT Katropa.
The fresh contract, which the former UAAP MVP signed on Saturday, will last until 2022.
Romeo was thankful to San Miguel big boss Ramon S. Ang, SMC sports director Alfrancis Chua, and team board representative Robert Non for the trust given him.
“Kaya gusto kong suklian (sila). Gusto ko na every game makatulong ako sa team sa kahit pa-paanong paraan,” he said.
He did just that after coming away with 12 points, four rebounds, and five assists in San Miguel’s 113-107 win over Columbian Dyip in the Governors Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
He shot 5-of-11 from the field and scored all of his output in the second half when the Beermen rallied back to scored their first win in three meetings this year with the Dyip.
“Yung pasok sa akin hindi ko pa maintindihan paminsan-minsan. So talagang kailangan focus lang ako lagi,” he said.
