Both were not part of the original 25-man pool announced last March 14 by head coach Sammy Acaylar, but were advertised to play in the Clash of Heroes. According to a different source, both are catching up with their academics. Allegedly, there were also no invitations for the pair to play in the event before it was announced.

The Clash of Heroes was set up to raise money for the team’s overseas training. It is also said to affect the players’ chances of making the final cut.

For the women’s division, Alyssa Valdez, Grethcel Soltones, Myla Pablo, and Elaine Kasilag were also not allowed by their club teams to take part in the event.

The coaches of both National Teams are hoping that they at least make an appearance to show their dedication to the National team.

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
