Jen Reyes raring to prove worth after FIVB selection

As one of the seven local players lined up for the country’s participation at the upcoming FIVB World Club Championship this October, multi-awarded libero Jen Reyes has set her sights on showcasing herself against the world’s finest.

“Talagang binigay sakin ito ni God [at itong ang] pagkakataon mo na ipakita ‘yung talento mo na binigay sayo. Kailangan ‘yung opportunity na ito huwag mong hayaan lang,” Reyes shared.

“Kumbaga, nabigyan ka ng pagkakataon ipakita mo sa mga tao ‘yung talento at mga natutunan mo simula pa lang nung nagumpisa ako sa volleyball.”

Not a stranger to these kind of tournaments, Reyes’ accumulated experiences playing internationally will come in handy for the import-backed Philippine team. Whenever her number is called, she will always be ready to battle it out.PSL-AFC-2016-F2-vs.-Petron-Reyes-Golden-Ticket-2983 Jen Reyes raring to prove worth after FIVB selection 2016 FIVB Women's CWC News PSL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Sobrang makakatulong siya kasi dadalhin ko iyon sa liga na ito kung sakaling bigyan ako ng chance ipasok,” Reyes added. “Siyempre sa world na ‘to dadalhin ko ‘yung iba kong experience na nakuha sa mga international (tournaments na nasalihan ko).”

Likewise, Petron head coach George Pascua shared the same sentiments for her fancied libero.

“Siyempre as a multi-awarded libero, she can perform naman sa mga international events,” he said.

“Sana dito [sa FIVB], magkaroon din siya ng magandang performance.”

Reyes couldn’t also help but turn emotional after the unexpected announcement. All her life, she has dreamt of representing the country on the international stage. And with the golden ticket secured, her dream is now a reality.

“Sobrang dream come true.”

“So talagang worth it lahat ng pagod simula elementary hanggang college. Ito na ata talaga ‘yung pinaka magandang nangyari sa buhay ko,” she concluded.
