AdU presents 10 greatest players in Wall of Greats

Date Posted: September 11, 2017 at 11:29 AM

In line with the UAAP Season 80 theme Go for Great, host Far Eastern University has asked member schools to put up a Wall of Greats which features ten or more past athletes who have significant achievements not only in the UAAP but also in the national and international arena. The idea is to honor and give due recognition to the athletes during the entire UAAP season.

From a long list, the Office for Athletics and Recreation (OAR), through its director Fr. Aldrin R. Suan, CM, has selected ten athletes based on these criteria: UAAP performance (championship, MVP, medals); national team membership; participation in ASEAN, Asian and international tournament; and participation in a commercial tournament.

AdU’s version of the wall is an 8 ft. x 13 ft. tarpaulin banner mounted on a wood stand that will be placed in front of the SV building and inside the ST building. It is titled The Great Falcons: The 10 Greatest Players of Adamson University. The featured athletes and their achievements are:
