After Kier Alvin Manlangit of basketball secondary had received offer from Ateneo de Naga University and University of Sto. Tomas – Legazpi, another opportunity has opened to an elementary rookie baller.
Dranreb T. Gianan, who scored 28 points in his debut game against Masbate Province, gets offer from Dela Salle-Zobel for his high school years which will start next school year.
The 12 year old, 5’11 baller and grade 6 pupil from Mavil Elementary School, Bagamanoc, Catanduanes shared that he started playing the game since kindergarten when his father handed him a basket ball.
Dranreb said he was grateful when Mr. Ferdinand Pelagio became a teacher in their school because he was the one who recommended him to Mr. George Villacorta, the coach of basketball team in Zone III.
“Pasalamat po ako na dumating si sir Pelagio sa school namin kasi siya po ang nakadiscover sa akin at nagrecommend saken para maging part ng team ng Zone III. Kung wala po si sir baka di pa ako nagkaroon ng opportunity maglaro ngayon lalo na dito sa Palarong Bicol,” Gianan said.
Dranreb also shared that a basketball scout for Dela Salle-Zobel has already talked to his mother offering him a basketball scholarship. The plan is they will go to Manila at the end of this school year.
“Happy po ako sir na may offer sa akin ang Dela Salle-Zobel. May nagkausap nga po kay mama pero maguusap pa daw sila ni papa paguwi sa Catanduanes. Pag nagkataon po mas malaking opportunity ito na mas makakapagdevelop saken bilang isang basketball player,” Gianan said.
Dranreb is the youngest son of Mr. Bernard Gianan, a driver and Mrs. Eva Gianan, an elementary teacher of Mavil Elementary School.
