John Amores personally apologizes to CSB


John Amores has begun the first stage of his healing on Saturday.

The embattled Jose Rizal University student personally went to College of Saint Benilde to apologize to Mark Sangco, Taine Davis, Jimboy Pasturan, Miguel Oczon, and the rest of the Blazers.

According to Blazers head coach Charles Tiu, the 23-year-old JRU lifer had been contacting his players on how he can go to the school.

“Amores reached out to one of our players so I told him to contact me. We spoke on the phone for some time a few days ago, and I invited him over to our practice,” Tiu recalled to Tiebreaker Times.

And the moment came 11 days after the now-infamous fracas that happened at the Filoil Ecooil Centre.

One of the key points of what Amores said was that he was willing to accept the consequences of his actions.

Amores is suspended indefinitely by the NCAA, removed from the JRU athletics program, and has two cases filed by Pasturan and Davis in San Juan.

“It was nice to hear him humble himself accept his mistake and apologize. He said he wanted to start over and will accept any consequences of his actions,” continued Tiu.

“We encouraged and supported him and tried to guide him.”

At the end of their talk, the team huddled around Amores in an encouraging sign that will start the moving-on process for everyone involved.

“I have personally forgiven him a long time ago, and I’m sure our players have too. The families of the players who were involved may still hold some resentment but it was an important first step to actually hear from him,” said Tiu.

“We respect that he actually wanted to apologize face to face first and not through any social media or public apology.”
