Custodio on retirement: Tignan natin kung kakayanin pa ng katawan ko

Earlier in the season when he was just coaching the Men’s team, Adamson head coach Domingo Custodio admitted to Tiebreaker Times that he was going to retire at the end of the season.

But a lot has happened since then. The Falcons soared to the top of the standings and Custodio was tabbed to replace the vacated head coach post of the Lady Falcons.

“Ayun nga. Sobra ako sa tension ngayon,” the 64 year-old Adamson lifer told Tiebreaker Times after his Falcons triumphed over the FEU Tamaraws on Wednesday.

Last Saturday in Custodio’s first day pulling double duty, both the Falcons and Lady Falcons lost in straight-sets fashion. Caused by his incredibly lively style, Custodio suffered from hypertension and shot down interviews with the media.

“Okay naman na ako. Talagang kakaiba lang sa pakiramdam noong Sabado,” Custodio assured. “Actually pakiusap sa akin yoon, sino ba ako para tumanggi,” Custodio said when asked about his new post.

If he was sure about his retirement at the start of the season, Custodio now is waiting out the end of the season if he can still bear the physical toll of coaching.

“Dapat last ko na talaga. Pero naging kumpiyansa nga ‘yung Adamson gawa mg maganda ang nilalaro ng lalake. Sabi ng ibang management ‘Coach wag ka muna umalis. Baka kapag umalis ka mag-iba ang laro nila,” Custodio expressed.

“Noon ko pa sinasabi na magpapahinga na ako. Ito nabigyan ako ng opportunity sa babae. Gagawin ko for Adamson.”

Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
