Chooks-to-Go, through Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. President Ronald Mascarinas and Gilas Pilipinas head coach Chot Reyes, has made their intentions known regarding the seven-foot-one manchild, that they plan to expose him in basketball overseas to further hone his skills.
“Chooks-to-Go is committing to support Kai even in his overseas training,” bared Reyes. “We are looking at Kai to be the foundation of the Gilas program. We are thankful to Chooks-to-Go for continuing to be a partner of this journey.
“For us in Gilas, thats very important because we know that for players to reach their potential, they really have to improve their skills,” he added.
This announcement was made Saturday afternoon at the TV5 Media Center in Mandaluyong, when Chooks-to-Go announced that Sotto will now be one of its’ brand ambassadors to reach a much younger audience.
“We’re very excited about Kai Sotto,” expressed Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. president Ronald Mascariñas.

“Aasahan niyo sa’kin na gagawin ko best ko.”
