Beyond Wins: Ramil de Jesus hopes he will be remembered by discipline, values

De La Salle University head coach Ramil De Jesus reached another milestone in his storied career on Saturday night.

De Jesus recorded his 300th career win in the UAAP after the Lady Spikers swept Adamson University, 25-16, 25-16, 25-18, to open their title-retention bid in the UAAP Season 86 women’s volleyball tournament at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

“Di ko naman nabibilang yun pero in 27 years sa La Salle, siguro baka umabot na nga don. Happy kasi umabot ng ganun karami yung panalo na hindi ko naman naisip na makakarating sa ganun,” said De Jesus during the post-game press conference.

The 12-time UAAP champion coach expressed that he’s grateful to have reached such a feat – but insisted that he considers it only as a bonus.

After all, his goal as a coach has always been to help his players perform at their best on and off the volleyball court.

“Para sa akin, yung mabigyan ng magandang kundisyon (at) performance yung mga bata, sapat na yun. Hhindi na yung kung umabot yung ganung panalo,” he said about his legacy.

When asked how he wants his legacy to be remembered by volleyball fans, the seasoned mentor said he wants to be remembered as a coach who instilled discipline and good values in his players.

“So ako siguro ano lang, gusto ko lang maalala ng mga tao siguro yung smart, tapos yung pananamit, maayos lalo na sa uniform – mabusisi ako sa ganun,” said the former F2 Logistics coach.

“Kaya yun yung trademark na pag sinabing La Salle, maayos ‘to, disiplinado ito, galing sa pangangalaga ni Coach Ramil. Kahit saang anggulo mo pakawalan, inside or outside the court, dala-dala nila yun,” he continued.

“Lagi ko naman pinapaalala sa kanila na hindi lang sa loob ng court yung alalay o pagbabantay sa inyo hanggang sa dumating yung time na pakikinabangan niyo yung mga advice at turo namin.”
