Bacoor Strikers give back to Army frontliners


Bacoor City Strikers team owners Congressman Strike Revilla and wife Chaye Revilla extended their helping hand to the Philippine Army based in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig last Friday. 

The Strikers’ top brass sent 12 sacks of rice and hundreds of canned goods to the unit through Strikers guard and Private First Class Eric Acuña.

Acuña has been serving as a front liner ever since the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) took place in Luzon due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic last March.

It was their way of supporting the military men who have spent countless hours working during the Philippines’ on-going battle against the pandemic.

But aside that, it is also a means of support for Acuña – an adopted son of Bacoor City – who played 29 games for the Strikers in the 2019-20 Chooks-to-Go Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season.

“Malaking tulong talaga siya, lalo para dito sa mga tropa sa Army. Lagi rin akong kinakamusta ni Cong. Strike kung may kailangan ako eh,” bared the 5-foot-8 Acuña, who enlisted in the Philippine Army last 2015.

“Sobrang blessed ako kaso hindi lang sa loob ng court nila ako pinapahalagahan, tinuturing na rin talaga nila kaming pamilya. Sobrang malaking blessing talaga sila Cong. Strike at ma’am Chaye sa ‘kin kasi laging silang nandiyan kahit wala na kaming laro.”

Besides this, the Revillas have also been taking care of the Strikers squad, continuing to give the players’ salaries and giving them whatever they need during this trying times.
